Following Augustine

LogoOne of the things that I enjoy about blogging is connecting with readers and other bloggers around the world. This week, I “met” Dr. Phoebe Chi, an internal medicine and public health physician and author, when she liked last Friday’s post and began following my blog.

Dear friends,

Pendants for a Cause now has its own website! I would be so grateful if you would follow me there as well, so that you can join me on this journey (I will eventually start a blog there with updates on our progress as an organization and what kind of work we are doing).

Thank you for being so wonderfully supportive, and I hope to see you there!

With love
Phoebe 💙
