Friends, I had the privilege of meeting Amy Johnson, the founder of Cuddles Clothing for Kids located at St. Mark's church on Campbell and Tecumseh Rd. W. Her story is truly incredible. The Windsor Star featured Amy in early January. If you haven't read it yet, here it is:  A law student and mother of six pays it forward Amy took me for a tour of the facility and showed me all of the stock they have available for kids of all ages. They provide free clothing for children and youth up to 18 years old. Please spread the word about Cuddles Clothing for Kids and help support this much needed community service. Regards, Fabio

Let's Dream Together

The newsletter below is from the United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County:  Dear Community Partner: We are very excited to announce that United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County is once again engaging the public in helping to choose our investment priorities for the next five years. To date we have spoken to almost 750 people about their needs and dreams for our community.    Based on that feedback, we have created a survey.    This survey asks the community to rank a series of goal statements.    These rankings, along with our own research will be used to determine where United Way will focus its resources from 2015 to 2020. Back in 2009, you may have assisted us with promoting the survey to your networks and/or staff.    As a result, a resounding 3,000 people gave us feedback.    We are asking for your help in distributing the link to  www.TOGETHERWEDREAM.CA .    The online survey found on this website, will be officially active  February 27-March 13, 2014 .
