It has been over a year since we updated our Quotes For A Cause Blog Post. We have enjoyed another year of giving and it is far past time to update everyone on what we have been doing! This post is a summary to bring everyone up to date. We will highlight some of our recipients with details, stories, and photos in the near future.
