I posted a link to this on my Facebook page and the response has been incredible- better than I could ever imagine. The best part is friends that I haven’t spoken to in years (and just stalk on FB) have reached out to show their support. Some hit the “like” button; others share the link. Some are writing to tell me their kids are in swim lessons or on swim teams. And a few have even asked if their children can participate in my project. Amazing!
