Help us help to make this world a kinder place, one Rees’ piece at a time…

We have two weeks left on our booster campaign to raise funds to help us print our Pay it forward cards and fund our school scholarships as well as our other charitable endeavours such as teacher grants and meal deliveries to those suffering in our community.  We are about halfway to our goal of 150 shirts sold and we know, with your help, we can easily surpass that goal.  Help us make a difference in other’s people’s lives – and show the world you believe in cultivating kindness.  You can order by clicking on the picture below or clicking HERE.  The ReesSpecht Life foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.
