Hearing Rick Miller speak and reading his book, which I keep on my bench, was very eye opening and altered, for the better, how I view the world.

Being one of the younger treasurer hunters as well as a Kid at Hope, I wanted to say the hope tunnels do really make a difference during the first week of school. I attend Westwood high school and having all those familiar as well as unknown faces there for encouragement along with uplifting messages does really make a difference in how students (including myself) start the year off. I just wanted to say thank you for the dedication and positive difference you’ve been making around St.luci…
I love Report Card Day. I can see the kids joy when I’m reading to them their talents & what they could do with them when they get older. I feel good leaving on those days knowing they all went home with that awesome feeling.
