​​​​Carly Valentine Project

​​​​​​Additional Cool Stuff from 2010:

  • KARE 11 (NBC) heard about my project and came to see us in action this year.  The reporter tagged along for deliveries at KCC/Bloom, and also at the Golden Living Center (Hillcrest).

  • ​​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 it:  Click here for a link to it.
