How comfortable is your family sharing your story? While we will always respect your privacy and wishes above all else, our non-profit thrives on donors. Donors are more likely to be involved if they "know" who they are supporting. We are open to keeping all information private, but changing names and places if you are more comfortable with that. We would like to set up a page on our website for each of the families we are working with. If not we completely understand. *
