    Hello Juanita!
    Thank you for such a lovely Christmas card and your good wishes. I’m sending a donation via this website to help, in a small way, to help with the wonderful work you do for Hog Island. My son, Chris, hopes to come for his first visit to Hog Island this year. You’ll recognise him by the English accent!
    Happy New Year,
    Liza O’Neal
