Dates for 2013–Plan Ahead for Awareness!

As you’re looking ahead to 2013, you may want to jot some dates down on your ministry calendar. Any of the dates listed below provide an excellent opportunity to have educational moments, celebrations, advocacy events, and so forth. If it’s too late for some of the closer 2013 dates, get them on your calendar for next year! I’ve not provided links because many dates have several potential sites as resources. Just do an Internet search for the name of the date or month and you’ll come up with information, as well as often resources and ideas to use. If you don’t, use your creativity!
