I have been blessed to be a part of 100 Women Who Care - Prince County PEI since it’s inception. Over the years I have heard many deserving charities share stories of the important work that they do and how much the funding has helped them with their mission. But last night it hit close to home and when they announced the winning charity was Lennon Recovery House it took my breath away and found myself sobbing happy tears. Congratulations Dianne Young! The work you are doing is impacting families and giving them a hope when for so long there was only darkness. Bless you! I invite all my Facebook friends to click this link and read the story how Lennon Recovery House came to be and the wonderful work that Dianne and her team are doing. PS bring a box of Kleenex with you when you do. www.lennonhouse.ca ... See MoreSee Less
