Just amazing, right!! So what are my goals for year two? Well, there’s really only one. To reach more kids!! We hope to adopt several more hospitals, increase the care package program and do lots more talks at gatherings and groups. To do all of these things, we need something from all of you. Since it’s our birthday, we’re asking for presents. And our version of presents is specifically donations. If every person that visited our website or was our friend on Facebook donated at least $2, we would have enough money to adopt 5 more hospitals and quadruple our care package program almost immediately. So I’m inviting all of you to my virtual party and asking you to send a birthday gift to BOWS & BALLCAPS. Information on how to donate is under the DONATIONS tab on the website. Thank you so much for all of your love and support that keeps this program growing and growing. Here’s hoping for another amazing year!!
