Kirsten! How are you? has been a long time. LIfe is busy for us all, but I guess that is a good thing in this economy! I do hope you are well, happy and fulfilling your dreams. Thank you for visiting me last night for a little frivolousness in my imagination! Thank you for the information on giving. These are certainly great ways to give and do service learning. I will take the information so that I can apply it also in my classroom. My colleague has her kids raise money to send nets to Africa as well. It is a great project. Have a great Christmas and relax, enjoy and create great memories! Bisous, Anita
