In Case You’re Not 1 of the 7.6 Million Viewers…

Just in case you are not one of the 7.6 million viewers of a recent BuzzFeed article that named The Marin Foundation’s I’m Sorry Campaign as the #1 Picture of the 21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity, here it is!

I’m being serious when I say this, but I think this is the biggest honor we’ve ever been associated with. If there is something that I want our lasting legacy to be, being the number one picture to restore one’s faith in humanity about sums it up. I had no idea this ranking was being compiled, and it was quite a humbling surprise last week when it went live. Thanks everyone, for all of your love, support and shares.

Much love.

      Lisa, I just sent a message on the first link I could find. I love you and bieelve in obeying the will of God and bieelve your book is inspired of Him. It is good that we do have some people questioning our motives, because it give us a chance to seek God again. If you feel good about your book, THEN it must be the will of God. Hope you can get the other message I sent today. Love to you and Gino,Many blessings for you both, June
