What it is

I'd like to invite you and The Sapient Readers Guild to participate in the Charged Up For Change EXPO at UAH on March 31. It's going to be this great community fair that features creative ways of participating in the local community--through art, independent business, athleticism, activism, you name it. Here's a link to our web page ( ). The purpose is to help students and others see all the creative ways that they can be involved in positive social change by exhibiting diverse organizations and individuals that use their passions tomake their world better. Some of the other participants so far are The Flying Monkey, Lowe Mill, swimmer Mimi Hughes, The Green Coalition, and many more. I think it would be awesome to have you represented in our University Center! Bring your books!

To register, go to: is free!!

If you'd like to talk more about this, call my cell 256-694-6786. Thanks! Erin

Ps. We'd like to invite The Makers too. Can you get me contact info for them? Or maybe pass along the invite?
