Hope Calendar: GSF Selected as BeneficiaryMay 16, 2010 by Victoria
We are so excited -- the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation was just selected by the Hope Calendar as their charity for 2011. The Hope Calendar was started by Houston photographer, Debi Gomez, as an effort to give back to causes impacting children and, in the last three years, over $19,000 has been donated! And this year, SMA will be the cause the Hope Calendar is championing!
We are enormously humbled and honored to be part of this inspiring project. We want to thank the Beasley-Wright family, whose darling son, Eli, inspired friends to nominate GSF for this honor. And we want to thank Debi for seeing how much hope her Hope Calendar will bring to SMA.
