Be a Tree in the School for Lifelong Learning

We just wanted to share this letter we received from Felicia Monteforte, who tells how she is using the Be a Tree program with mentally challenged children:

Myself and a friend who is a special education teacher for The School of Lifelong Learning, (a school for mentally challenged children up to age 19) here in our town, have presented the Doggone Safe program to the Principal and we will be giving presentations during the month of May in conjunction with the International Dog Bite Prevention Challenge. We'll be giving 2 presentations twice a week to all age levels. In fact they are trying to get the Be a Tree program as part of the school's curriculum. 

We are also hoping to get the higher functioning children in a work environment with animals, i.e., shelters, groomers, etc, once they've completed the Doggone Safe Be a Tree program.

Thanks for all the work you guys do!
Regards,
Felicia
