Do YOU feel the love?

We feel your love here at Get In Touch, and we celebrate it every day!

From the "100 Women" who turned out for our photo shoot for The Oprah Magazine, to the 76 countries that have downloaded our Daisy Wheel app - - we feel your love!

From the 2 universities (Tufts and Catholic) that raised an extraordinary amount of money for Get In Touch with unique events on campus, to our 12 high school Get In Touch Youth Ambassadors that are introducing our program to their communities - - we feel your love!

From the 1 original Pretty In Pink event we held in Connecticut back in 2005, to the 5 states we now hold Pretty In Pinks events in - - we feel your love!

From the first 500 girls that received Daisy Wheels here in Connecticut in 2009, to the 1,000,000 girls we project will have Daisy Wheels by the end of 2014 - - we feel your love!

I am grateful I am able to see and touch and feel each of these "best and most beautiful things" that Helen Keller speaks about.  

And so I ask you, YOU feel the love?  


Hope Lives!
