Additional Cool Stuff


  • KARE 11 (NBC) heard about my project and came to see us in action this year.  The reporter tagged along for deliveries at Bloom, and also at Hillcrest Golden Living Center.  (note: this link isn't always available -- if you get lucky and the video pops up, it is really sweet!)

Shout-out from the Author of Love, Ruby Valentine

  • ​​Laurie Friedman, the author of the book that inspired my project (Love, Ruby Valentine), wrote a nice blog on her website.  The websites for Lerner Publishing & Carolhoda books also published the story!  So cool!
