I think there comes a time in each of our lives… when we become so painfully aware of a problem, that we can no longer dismiss it. We can’t sweep it under the rug. We can’t turn our backs on it. And we certainly cannot turn our hearts away from a cause that is desperate for our attention.Shelaine Maxfield, Founder and President
