Opportunity Knocks - April 4, 2014

Well I held off on posting this week's Opportunity Knocks to bring you my Autism Awareness Month post yesterday so today I thought I'd start with getting back on the proverbial horse and sharing your weekly dose of where we can pitch in.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to share the post with friends and colleagues,  has submitted an item for inclusion,  or has sent a message to comment on the project.  I appreciate the support! 

Do you have an opportunity that you'd like to share? Please send it to me at
