At the Do Your Part section, you can let family and friends know about the important work of the foundation; review the Foundation’s plan for creating a braver, kinder word based on its three pillars of safety, skills, and opportunity; share your story of bravery; and donate to the Foundation’s efforts.

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
