It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    I love the poetry of Langston Hughes. I had a poster of his poem about dreams on every classroom wall where I taught. One of my favorite lines is “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair,” from “Mother to son.” These lines written in 1935 are as relevant today as when he first wrote them in 1935.

    “O, let America be America again—
    The land that never has been yet—
    And yet must be—the land where every man is free.”

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      Hughes is amazing to me…so clear and poetical a communicator with no unnecessary words…and at the same time, it sounds like the way many people speak.
