Wow! It's nice to see your creation having an impact all around the world. We do lots of things each day and don't always get to observe the impact even though everything we do has one, seen or unseen. You have united people around the world through something really positive and uplifting AND you get to see the result of it. I enjoyed all of the connections and creativity that came to me as a result of what you did. Thank you, Lori, deeply.
Brava!

What a global impact!!! The map is fascinating. Thanks for taking the time to do it. It's so nice to have a visual. I also liked figuring out which was my very own pin on the coast of Maine. Now to just get my pieces made for the third reveal.....
