Hello ,

With liberty and justice for all!

The "Get In Touch Girls' Program & Daisy Wheel" and its "8 Tips for 8 Straight" are causing quite the buzz...from the mountains to the valleys, from sea to shining sea!

Look for us in Connecticut schools in 2009, New England & Tri-State in 2010, and nation-wide by 2011!
