This International Day of Charity, we'd like to encourage you to take time to give back through a charity of your choice either through the giving of your time, through donation or participating in an event. Public 501(c)(3) organizations do extraordinary work often on tight budgets with dedicated staff and volunteers.
Not sure how to help? Hear are a few organizations to consider.
September 6th is Read a Book Day.
One well-known thing about me is my love of reading. I read anything I can get my hands on. I get that from my parents who are voracious readers themselves. Reading is a great way to keep on top of trends or changes in the industry as well as escaping for a couple of hours. I’m currently in the middle of reading two books, Joomla 3 Explained and Beach Lawyer. You may recognize the first title. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a contest to win the book with the winner being pulled from those who registered for JoomlaDay Chicago. The contest came from my reading the book and finding it helpful as it reminded me of the power that core Joomla!, without a lot a of extensions or plugins, can be. It is also great prep for the certification exam.

The 4th of July is here!The day where America celebrates it's hard won independence. It’s a day where patriotism, family and being neighborly all come together culminating into a big explosion, both figuratively and literally, of red, white, and blue along with food, festivals, and fireworks. You cannot help but get caught up in the spirit of the day. As you gather with family and friends, I encourage you to take a moment to acknowledge those who fought so that we have the freedoms we enjoy; and for those who continue to fight so that others can also. Happy Fourth of July, may it find you happy, healthy and safe!

Happy Mother's Day.
Today is one of the largest gift giving days, with children everywhere expressing their love, admiration and appreciation for the person who was there when they need a lesson - sometimes hard, a helping hand - usually advice or just an someone to listen - a lot. Many shower their mom's with flowers and bunch, others do something a bit different.
