THANK YOU ALL for all of your hard work that went into creating a fabulous 2nd edition of The Women’s Journal! Fabulous…love the digital, as well!
Response to “Charms for Charity” by Alex Friedmann
This is wonderful, Alex! I loved reading your story. It reminds me of me when I was a little girl. Keep up the great work for helping others. It is not “THINGS” that make us happy, it is “FEELINGS.”
How wonderful it is to be introduced to a young lady with such character and compassion, even though it’s done only by reading about her. Please pass on an admiring stranger’s admiration to her and her worthwhile enterprise to buy presents for the kids at CHOP.
Donald E. Anders, President Exton Region Chamber of Commerce
I read your story in the Women’s Journal magazine…great story and you are wonderful for doing what you do. I was impressed! I want to thank you and your friend for helping get toys for sick kids….wow…that’s a wonderful way to help and give of your time.
