None of this would have been possible without Adam Mesirow and Lisa Trafficanta. Their dedication to helping myself and the Mailisita Foundation is incredible. They have really given us a greater platform to share our story and involve more people in the work being done in Mailisita. They have been a great help to me as I prepare for each of these media opportunities since they are all firsts for me! It is pretty nerve racking to be on the radio and TV for the first time ever, since I am just an elementary school teacher, but they have been very supportive.
Thank you especially to my family, the Mailisita Foundation and St. Joseph Church in Libertyville. They have been my greatest supporters personally and spiritually. My work is only possible because of the incredible generosity and commitment to these children by the Mailisita Foundation and St. Joseph. They have accomplished so much and I am so grateful to just be a small part of the work being done in Mailisita. I am looking forward to seeing all of you at our fundraiser on May 10th!
If you are looking for ways to become involved in the Mailisita Foundation's work or wish to help please come to our fundraiser at Mickey Finn's in downtown Libertyville on May 10th at 6 p.m. There will be pizza, auction items, music, pictures, stories and many great people! We are always looking for more people to share in caring for this community and it's children. So please bring your family and friends, so we can share in helping this community and the special children.
