Giving Hearts Day     💗💗💗

Mind Shift has participated in GHD since 2016 and raised an average of $24,000 per year in donations, a big part of our operating capitol for the year.  Please consider helping us achieve our ambitious goal of $45,000 this year.  We can only do this with your help.  This year, each donation is matched dollar for dollar up to $22,000, by a generous donor.  Help us maximize this wonderful gift.  With this funding we will be able to provide training for 15 Specialists, adding valuable resources to the regional economy.
