Kudos to those who are starting the Cure this week. In your honor (and to provide a nudge to those still thinking about joining), here is a list of the top ten (well, actually, 12) things you can do right now, the first week of the Spring Cure.
It's a mix of small but powerful actions from both the Deep Treatment and One-Room Remedy, along with some ideas to help get involved with the online groups forming this week - a general list of things anyone can do to get off on the right foot...
