The individuals listed below make our work possible. They believe in a better world. They respect people. They know the value of supporting children and families. By the way they live their own lives, they are helping to make a more humane and aware civilization.
We are humbled by their trust and so very thankful for their support.
They are our heroes.

There is no passion to be found by playing small – in settling for a life that is less than one you are capable of living.
