Click here to Register for this donation event. July 30th is International Friendship Day. What a great opportunity to celebrate our friendships and think about the ones that got away.

If they choose to believe it is bad, they feel bad. Why am I using the word “choice”? It’s the only thing in life that you can absolutely be sure is not happening to you.
