Hopefully you have had a relaxing summer and you’re back in the swing of things with fully recharged batteries, because there is so much going on this month you are going to need your energy. There are over 20 awareness months happening in September, not to mention half a dozen weeks, and many more awareness days.

You’ll have your work cut out for you on September 28 with seven – that’s right seven – different awareness events. But at least you can kill two birds with one stone by visiting a neighbor for National Good Neighbor Day and asking them something stupid in honor of National Ask a Stupid Question Day!
