During this unprecedented time, one of the most rewarding aspects of our journey is when we receive positive feedback from our supporters that somehow we have brightened someone's day. Below are a few examples of the many KIND NOTES we received regarding two of our COVID-19 blog posts. Hopefully, we can resume our DAC Foundation educational gatherings and exhibitions in the near future.
