"It is not everyday we are called to give of ourself for purely benefit others, especially those we do not know! Esther I know you walk to raise awareness, and to help uplift those who are not able, to be the voice for the voiceless, and this goes on for a number of organizations.
The least the rest of us can do is to show our support for your endeless giving, and your sense of compassion for the disinfrechised.
Thank you for who you are, and what you do. "
