As the weather cools down, things are heating up with the holidays just around the corner. Time is flying and I still don't know what to be for halloween!
In the meantime, I hope to see you at this week's Teams and Groups Office Hours. Catch me in the Virtual Labs at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, September 28 (that's tomorrow).
Have You Heard About Pocket Shop?

Queer Street Team Makes a Difference
The Queer Etsy Street Team is a mutually supportive community of artists and crafters inclusive of all Etsy sellers identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexed, and questioning. Team members have been raising money for The Trevor Project (the only national 24-hour teen suicide prevention hotline) via their collective shop. Through the end of this year, 100% of proceeds made will be donated to this one-of-a-kind organization.
