We are starting a periodic feature called #butterflykisses that recognizes someone who is making a difference in the lives of others.

Our first #butterflykisses goes to Caitie Whelan‘s Lightning Notes. The purpose is to “help us move the world forward. It features great ideas and striking stories to remind us that we matter and that improving the world is our matter.” To subscribe Click Here. There is no better way to start the day than with a bolt of inspiration. https://mailchi.mp/…/the-lightning-notes-for-april-2-2018-t…
