Supporting those who support us

Today my blog is about supporting others who support the VCFS 22q11 Foundation. We are very fortunate to have a number of people and companies that support us. Each and everyone of them is a wonderful and giving person or organisation. We have been affiliated with many of them for more than 5 years.

So I say to you, in a world full of take take take, its time to give! Give back to those who have given to us. Just a share or like on Facebook, or a small tweet on Twitter, a Digg on DIGG or book mark on stumble upon whatever your choice of social media one little word may help one of our wonderful supporters.

Here are some links to our supporters, if any of them can assist you in anyway I would personally recommend all of them!
