Review for K9s For Warriors, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

K9s for Warriors is a program designed to help returning veterans with PTSD problems. The dogs and veterans are paired up and go through training together so that mutual trust is reached and a sense of calm when things are falling apart can be gained. This program allows the men and women of our nation to stop hiding behind four walls and be able to be apart of the wonderful country they put their lives on the line to protect, so that other people would not have to. So that others may sleep peacefully in their beds and not have to worry if their way of commuting to work is going to expode on them.

Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Office of Letters and Light proudly hosts NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. I have participated in 2009, 2010, and am planning to take part next month, also in 2011, I volunteered to be a betabug, do beta testing for their website. I did this since I knew I wouldn't be participating that year due to pregnancy. This organization helps the world's dreamers put their ideas on to paper making them a reality. How wonderful is it to have the motivation and cheering team to make things happen? They make dreamers into doers.

Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated in NaNoWrimo this past November, 2010 and the previous in 2009.
NaNo has helped me to come to realize writing is about getting the fingers on the keyboard and putting your heart and soul into each word.
Writing is normally a solitary pasttime and profession but with NaNo it allows us to celebrate our victories and lament our defeats as we chace the goal of writing a novel in a month. The beauty of people coming together across the globe to follow the dream and challenge of applying words to the page inspires many, including me, to keep with it. It's a wonderful thing when you don't have people at home who are willing to support your dreams to find such a large and lively group who are excited to be doing the same thing you are.
