Jessica Norman is a mom, graphic artist, web designer, business owner, community volunteer and a SHARE Neighbor. She also has an adorable little five year old daughter who goes everywhere with her - learning how to be a giving member of her community right from the start!

One of our recent "Where's SHARE?" adventures led us to this organization. Most folks know about their fabulous fitness center, but they do so much more, from transitional housing to after-school programs with an emphasis on fun and learning. Watch this video to discover - Where's SHARE?
It's time to revisit reader favorites from August! Last month it was our co-written post with the folks at Charlotte Smarty Pants about education-focused nonprofits. Check it out below - we hope you find an exciting way to get involved!

Education is one of the best tools our children have in creating a happy and healthy life, but some kids and families in our community need a little extra help getting that strong start – whether it be tutoring, school supplies, or just a mentor.
We’ve listed some local organizations that are doing amazing work for today’s youth – both here in Charlotte and in places around the world. Some just need financial donations; some need volunteers; and, some need a little of each. Take a look and think about how you can make a difference.
