Laura is a friend of mine who creates the 25 Days to Make a Difference blog. She is a young girl with a big heart.
On March 31st, she is hosting a blog carnival to support the Special Olympics' Spread the Word to End the Word Day. It is a National Awareness Day to raise awareness of the hurtful effects of the "R-word" and encourage people to pledge to stop using it.
