What did you do last Labor Day weekend? Go to a few picnics? Wash the car? Hold down the couch? While you were doing that, seven students from six different colleges spent the weekend with residents at Easy Does It, Inc., a transitional housing facility in Leesport, Pennsylvania for people in recovery.
This is what they did online.
Here’s what they did in print.
This holiday, why not engage in something exciting. Unique. Something your friends and family have (probably) never done. Something meaningful. Profound.
Something that will change your life.
Writing Wrongs is that opportunity.
