About

If your children have relocated across the United States or you have no children of your own, what do you do on Mother's Day? Wouldn't it be nice if someone came by for coffee or took you for a walk, brought you a plant and cheered up your day.

You can be that someone. With just a few hours per month you can brighten the day for a person who is legally blind and living alone. A friendly visitor or a shopping buddy can make a world of difference to a senior living home alone.

Wouldn't you like to be that special someone. Let's make it happen today!
