    in Hobbies

    I’m Barb Demorest founder of Knitted Knockers Support Foundation, www.knittedknockers.org.   My story began when I had a mastectomy and was at a loss as to what to wear. My good friend and super knitter, Phyllis, made me a knitted knocker!  It literally changed my life. Knittedknockers.org is a website where women can request their free knockers made with unconditional love by caring volunteer knitters.

    Do you find your life to be driven by a sense of legacy or something else?

    in Education

    Join us today as we raised the question:


     


    Do you find your life to be driven by a sense of legacy or something else?


     


    If life is a “GAME” what are your RULES?


    Something to consider......


     


    The fight for civil rights was a fight about legacy, having the right to define, create and determine our life options based on personal initiative, free from discriminatory practices that created unfair barriers to personal pursuits.....


     


    What could be more important than thinking about the reason why we do what we do.....
