Good to Know / April 2018
Just a few things we'd thought you'd like to know this month

Time is hard to find, but you don’t need much to make a difference. April 15th is Micro Volunteering Day—a holiday for helping others in bite-size ways. Only a few minutes can make someone’s day shine brighter. Retweet a charity’s fundraising page, drop-off unused clothes or canned goods, sort recyclables or write a letter to a veteran. These things seem small, but they add up in a big way. More ideas at GlobalGiving.org.
Prom has long been a celebration and a rite of passage for teens. But with Prom Season on its way, it’s time to give old traditions an update. Make your gifts mean more with custom-designed corsages and boutonnieres that add personal flair to flowers. Steal the spotlight with elegant illusion-top gowns or playful two-piece party dresses. Catch eyes with patterned lapel tuxes or textured or printed suitcoats. The options are endless! For more inspiration check out Pinterest.com.
