Some things are worth mentioning more than once.

We think a reminder to "be kind" is worth mentioning over and over and over, again.

We are grateful for the many kindnesses we encountered this "evening with the author" events to benefit Get In thoughtful photos that you sent us of your "traveling Daisy Wheel" the nice things you write and say after you receive our newsletter.

We've been hard at work this summer preparing for our upcoming Pretty In Pink events in Cape Cod, MA and Milford, CT.  We'll be honoring some super-fabulous "Women of Strength" and hope you'll be able to join us for some celebration and inspiration!
Are you planning a "GIT Your Pink On!" Day at your school or business for October?  It's not too soon to start planning!
If you are a rower, please be sure to check out the exciting initiative we are launching with Pocock Racing Shells; it's a wonderful opportunity for your team and also a way for you to help Get In Touch continue to provide Daisy Wheels to girls all over the world!

Oh, and one last thing..."be kind" to one another.

Hope Lives!

"Evening with the Author" in Madison, Connecticut...
The Burke family of Madison, Connecticut hosted a quintessential New England "evening with the author" event to benefit Get In Touch.
I read from my book as the summer sun set over their lovely shoreline home and each guest made a generous donation to Get In Touch.  
If you'd like to host an "evening with the author" fundraising event, in which you host a reading/signing with Mary Ann at your home or business,
