I like Glogster because you can like fashion your own page and let others see it. You can also do what you like on it, you can do like funk, or sea, or garden themes.
I have discovered things like, you don’t have to do something really big to be a humanitarian. Something really little like picking up rubbish or helping a lost kid would go really far.
Great to hear Emma = let me know which glog you would like posted and I will embed it here on the blog for others to see!
