We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into September with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is about female inmates inside Oregon’s Coffee Creek Correctional Facility and the conservation program they host to care for the endangered Taylor’s Checkerspot Butterfly. As you’ll read in the story, they care for the larvae and release the butterflies into the wild: good for the butterflies, good for the women. It’s a win-win!

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 Susan Scott, Peter Nena, Shilpa Garg, Mary J. Giese, and Damyanti Biswas. 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.
