You're almost home

We have so many new Neighbors and friends (thank you!) that we decided to share this post from July 2013. It's still so very true!

---------------------------------

When I was a kid we moved from one side of town to another. Not a long distance, but close enough to a city bus stop so that my mom's commute to work would be much easier. Still, it seemed like a major move to a 7 year old. To help us get used to the idea, every time our travels  took us past our soon-to-be new neighborhood, Mom would say "See? If we lived there we would already be home."

The same thing applies to joining us at SHARE Charlotte. If the words "join" or "sign up" sound like a process or a chore...trust me, it's not. The distance between you and full access to SHARE's growing Collection of Good is literally a few keystrokes.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is in September

It's time to revisit reader favorites from September! Last month was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which became our focus in the Charlotte Smarty Pants post below. Check it out - we hope you find an exciting way to get involved!

“The soul is healed by being with children.” – English Proverb

Cancer and kids: it’s hard to read those two words in the same sentence.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, although for many parents and kids no specially designated month is necessary—they deal with this terrible disease every day. In fact, cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children in the U.S.

This frightening statistic is why there are organizations working hard to eradicate cancer from kids’ lives. Here in Charlotte, a lot of good work is being done to help families, fund research and raise awareness. Here are a few. We hope you’ll take a minute to check them out and get involved.
