#FF Fri Fundraisers for Dec. 8, 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Also, the busiest?

I sure hope so, but I’ve seen “the end” in my sights before, so I’m not celebrating just yet. Well, little celebrations, sure. If you’re participating in #WomenBoycottTwitter today, I encourage you to take any […]

This year I probably saw a record few […]
