April A to Z Blogging Challenge – I’ve Got The Music In Me


For the third year, we’ll be participating in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge!

In 2014, our first attempt at the challenge, we asked for guest bloggers and shared a variety of personal stories and advocacy issues.
Last year, we adopted a theme “Together We Can Do So Much.”

This year we’re going to have some fun! Our theme is “I’ve Got The Music In Me.”

Music is an integral part of our lives. Take a look around our community and you’ll see that music is used for a variety of important tasks:
• Self-expression
• Education
• Physical fitness
• Socialization
• Awareness & Advocacy
• Employment

Join us for a month-long tribute to the tunes that keep us going and make life fun!

A new post every day in April (except for Sundays) !
