  • Hi Chris-

    I wish to thank you for helping me with the fix for my Facebook account. It was very kind of you to help me. I speak to a lot of people from all over the world. While most of our conversations deal with helping to improve the treatment of animals worldwide some of my Friends are in areas that are at war constantly. I worry about what is happening to the women and children who are in danger every day. I also have a special Friend who has been fighting to stabilize his government and bring some form of Democracy to his country. While all of my Friends speak English some posts are in Arabic and that is how I ran into this problem.

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and wish You, your family and friends good health, happiness, and Peace in the coming year. Thank you again.

    Sincerely,

    Jill Campoy
