Happy post-Halloween! We are finished with October, the month of Things That Scare Us, and are onto November which Plenty is devoting to Things That Give Us Hope. We love this theme.
Among our hopeful features this month is an interview with Samantha Yammine, @science.sam, who uses social media to help make science more accessible to all and to shine a light on women in the field. We will also feature a guest post from Kate Harveston, a political writer and blogger who will give us a round-up of women empowering women through their online writing.
Because the things that give us hope are so often rightly tied up with children, we’re going to give our take on youth activist Hanna Alper and her new book/call to action Momentus, Small Acts, Big Change. We’re also excited to showcase tools to help kids 4-7 years old explore emotional challenges and heighten their emotional intelligence through the Feel Brave Teaching Guide. And finally, we can’t wait to tell you about Xenia Concerts, a series of music and arts performances that are welcoming to kids on the autism spectrum.
And because November is nothing if not a lead up to heavy-weight December and all things holiday, we will offer you a special piece on Holiday Decorating 101. And as in previous years, we’re here for you with our annual Holiday Gift Guides for Her, Him, Them, the Kids, and Gifts that Give Back.
In other words, November at Plenty is full to overflowing – enjoy!
