We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday in June, and time for some good news to take you into July (JULY?!?!) with a smile. The post I’ve chosen to share this month (with thanks to Carol Thompson, who shared it with me first) is especially good news for the children in the state where I live, New Jersey.

Governor Phil Murphy’s wife announced this month that New Jersey will be the first state in the US to incorporate climate change education in public schools for kids in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a worldwide blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

Your cohosts for this month are Sylvia McGrath, Susan Scott, Shilpa Garg, Damyanti Biswas, and Belinda Witzenhausen. And if you want to read more uplifting articles, please visit the WATWB Facebook page here or the Twitter home page here to find links to other stories.
