Although our public school system is heavily flawed, we are still light years ahead of many nations that do not have the means, or outright refuse, to provide a basic education to their children. I have been in the homes of refugee families, and it is absolutely humbling and inspiring to see their children eager to learn and grateful for what little they have. Help Salt Lake City's refugee community prepare for the upcoming school year by donating much needed school supplies and backpacks.

A #millienial 's dream.
Garrett Gee is an unlikely technology entrepreneur. The 26-year old BYU student parlayed his first mobile app design into a multimillion-dollar company that has provided his young family with financial security.

July 26 marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). How has this groundbreaking legislation impacted your life? For our family, it has enabled my brother +Fulutusi Mailo to live a life with dignity. He is able to access programs, services, and the community at large, which ultimately helps him along his journey towards independence. And, he is able to exercise his right to choose, to dictate what is right and best for him. I think many of us take freedom, independence, and self-determination for granted. Celebrate the ADA by pledging to uphold and protect the rights of millions.

You may not be with your family when a disaster strikes so it’s important to make your family communication plans now. Creating a family emergency communication plan will help keep everyone accounted for during an emergency.
