the heat is on

it's going to be a busy week here at chickadee central. the summit of awesome gets started just a few short days from now and there's plenty of prep needed for the presentation sessions. to get your own self ready, view the updated schedule and learn more about each session by reading the descriptions.

and the finishing touches are being put on a special project for a special cause. some chickadee creations are going up on the auction block again. this time they are part of a fundraising effort for the thurgood marshall academy, a dc charter school. From their website:

Thurgood Marshall Academy was founded upon the belief—articulated by US Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall—that all children have the right to a first-class education and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

As the District's first law-themed public charter high school, Thurgood Marshall Academy combines a comprehensive, standards-based curriculum with education about law, democracy, and human rights.

Thurgood Marshall Academy's goal is to help students develop their own voices by teaching them the skills lawyers have—the ability to solve complex problems, think critically, and advocate persuasively for themselves and their communities. We currently serve 365 students in grades nine through twelve.

they host an annual shining star gala and auction to raise funds to further their educational cause, and this chickadee is contributing a combination apron, tote and pot holders. today, meet the helpers that go between your hands and the hot stuff.

this tough twosome makes sure that your tender paws stay protected. they are double stuffed with special batting to absorb heat. and, as you'll see later, are stitched to match the others in the ensemble.
