Visiting with Gail and find out how you can contribute even by way of donating funds to this organization, from say a musical event just like I did in 2014. I organized 2 fantastic local Muskoka musicians, Jessica Ross from Peterborough and superstar Kaitlin Kozell to perform at a function, and they donated proceeds to this Peterborough charity organization, which is part of a global team that makes a difference in the lives of many, just like founder Gail has.
CONGRATULATIONS my friend on this special recognition.
