Did you know that studies have shown that expressing gratitude induces feelings of pleasure and contentment, which in turn can impact your overall health? We are all about expressing gratitude—for our amazing volunteers, for our wonderful members, and for being part of an industry that cares so deeply.   

May your heart be light this holiday season and beyond, for the children you are trying to reach with your writing and illustrating need this now more than ever.
