As our therapists and their families prepare for Thanksgiving tomorrow, I thought it was a perfect moment to reflect on all there is to be thankful for.  Healthy, love, friendship -there are so many simple, wonderful things to celebrate- including a few of my favorites, like… warm croissants, time with extended family, quiet mornings to sleep in, and

amazing new friends- like Whitney.

One of the things I have been most grateful for this year was our summer intern, Whitney. She is just a lovely person inside and out and was incredibly organized and helpful at a time when things on the business side of GTA were waaaayyy too busy!  So when she emailed us recently about her new non-profit project we were excited to lend our support.

The Taaluma Project is a non-profit started by nine students, including our own Whitney W., at Virginia Tech after an inspiring trip to Kenya.  Their goal is to raise $60,000 a year- every year– to fund the secondary education of primary school students at the Bambakofi Academy.

We are thankful to be a first-hand witness to how young adults in our community are committed to changing lives for the better and we are excited to help them succeed.
