Did you do that in the proper Newsies voice?
In case you: A) Don’t live in Chicago B) Don’t follow me on Twitter or C) couldn’t hear my screams from here
Then you might have missed this on Friday
Don’t see it? Let’s take a closer look shall we.
Feel free to scream. I did.
Why yes, that is a snapshot of MY BLOG on the front page of the Chicago Sun Times Business Section on Friday! They wrote an article about the Quaker Start with Substance program and the inauguration parties that they are sponsoring with 11 fabulous and influential bloggers around the nation.
The captcha is of the post that I wrote about the Quaker Start with Substance Program.
“I” (well the hawt Rachel version of me that she illustrated) am featured (albeit not by name, but hey you know what they say about beggars) in a major Newspaper!
Pardon me while I still my beating heart and quaking hands.
While I’m doing that, check out the links below to find out how you can help feed your family and fuel it forward.
You can find out more about the Quaker Start with Substance Program here, follow Quaker on Twitter and learn more about what you can do to help here
