Where do you get your articles?
We work with the community to find services /stories that will make a difference. We will offer a variety of information , not endorsing or ridiculing any. It is our belief that what works for you is what is right. We want to share all information in hopes that we serve as many as we can and offer ideas/ information you may or may not have heard about . This journey is one that holds no right and no wrong, it simply is . No judgement, just a safe place to be, share and learn.
What else can we expect from the site?
Well, we are still a work in progress but are working on travel and dining ideas for you along with a section for the kids who are entering young adulthood.
Are all advertisers/ sponsors paying to be on site?
No, we have a free business directory option as well as a Non Profit component for the site. We will work with you to see what may be best for your service and our readers.
Why are you doing this ?
Why? My why is our son Marky. Our shining star with Autism that teaches in all he does yet struggles to be heard and understood . My dad always told me to follow my passion ,do what I love and that the rest will follow. This is what I love. I love people, I love connections , I love making a difference and this is allowing me all of that. If in doing this, somehow , someway things help Marky , which I know they will, I am one step closer. ( closer to what, I may not know yet! )
I hope you enjoy the newsletter and the site. I am so happy you are here!
