I love how community efforts gave rise to a beautiful message from the DOC to our friends, globally.  And I also love how folks here at home spared a rose and made this campaign part of their personal love story.

Thanks to everyone for their support, participation, and passion for this effort.  I’m already excited to see what we can do next year!

  2. This made me tear up as well. We are such a strong and powerful community. I’m so very proud of what people did to make this happen.
