What do you need to know about in 2014?
Let me know! Either I will draw on my own knowledge and experience, or I'll seek out an expert with tips to share.
This year, I worked on several projects related to nutrition, social mobility, and access to health care. It's important to document, advocate, and generally make these issues more widely known.
But I was the writer/editor--I was not directly, for example, ensuring someone had enough food to last the month. So it occurred to me that a small thing I could do was to donate a percentage of my earnings to ALIVE, a community-based organization in Alexandria.
Thanks for your support this year to allow me to have the resources to do so.
