Dear Friends, Lori Lombardo and I sincerely thank you for your generosity and kindness! Writing this book was a labor of love for me, and I wrote it with the hope that we could get it in the hands of families who need it most. You are making this happen. So far $400 was donated, and 24 kids will now receive books! Special shout out to Lori for all of the hard work she has put into this campaign. The GFM is picking up stream, please help spread the word. Every penny counts.
xo,
Meredith Villano
