Hi, Friends and Neighbors!
I am overwhelmed at the generosity of each and every one of you! Seriously! This started out as a quick invitation to some friends, that has now exploded into a full movement! And… I couldn’t be more thrilled! Seriously! Even with the postponement due to the pending storm, I couldn’t be happier. WHY????? Because it gives us an extra week to tell more people and collect more bras, underwear, pads, tampons and such! WOO HOO!!! Please help spread the word by forwarding this message to them!
So, here’s the latest…
NBC12 NEWS SEGMENT, Karla Redditte:
