Hello ,

We've been BUSY!!!

As you can see from this newsletter - chock full of good news! - the month of May brought us to people and places that value the education and information our Daisy Wheels bring to girls worldwide!

There is something for everyone in this newsletter - including Dads and Grads! - check out the Clout Card, which donates $10 to GIT for every membership; come to our Bead for Life party and help lift African women and children out of poverty; and be sure to check out One Meaning's Daisy Drive for GIT!

Our Girls' Program & Daisy Wheels have rolled into 28 states, Washington, D.C., and 13 countries - and our goal is to be in all 50 states by the end of this year!

We're looking forward to the National Association of School Nurses Conference later this month in Chicago to meet with thousands of school nurses...see you in the Windy City!

Hope Lives!
  GIT Your Gown On!

Proud to be the Keynote Speaker at the New England Association of School Nurses Conference last month in Mystic, CT, 253 School Nurses from all over
New England welcomed me warmly and LOVED our Daisy Wheels! 

I am pictured here with my friends, Sandi Delack,
President of the National Association of School Nurses,
and Joan Cagginello, Nursing Director for the City of Milford, CT
and Get In Touch Board Member.

See you in Chicago next month, for the National Conference, where thousands of School Nurses will descend upon the Windy City and learn more about GIT!
