Morning Ronda, It was lovely chatting with you yesterday and I do hope to be visiting you real soon. Just a quick question. I know that you distribute to children of approximately 3 to 9 years old but do you accept baby/toddler items for distribution by another organisation. I seem to remember reading that somewhere but can't find it again. I have made some hats but I think they may be too small for your age group. Thanks and regards, Mary Parry.
Ronda I just want to send you and Wendy and all the girls our biggest love and hugs and support for everything you do, every day. Do remember girls to take time off for yourselves too, a bit of pampering and "zoning out" time is always beneficial, perhaps with feet up and a nice cuppa. I am in awe of the love and devotion that drives all of you to help the children so vastly. Remember you're all making a difference, each and every day in wonderful ways and we're here to support you in any and every way we can. You have our love and trust and support always!---love, Jeanne xoxoxo
