{The Last Word} Needy Week…

I have someone I want to introduce you to … in January.  It is my sweet intern Sarah! 🙂  I cannot wait for the semester to start so the internship can begin!

In the meantime….

Sarah is a marketing major at UNCC {hey like me!}.  She has been working on a charity event for a local bookstore, The Last Word.  Reading for the Needy week focuses on encouraging kids that reading doesn’t have to just be about homework.  There will be fun themed activities in-store Saturday, November 17th & Sunday, November 18th; think Hunger Games & Harry Potter!  Check the website for more details!
