During this difficult time everyone is staying inside.  We have partnered with Amazon Smile so if you shop on Amazon Smile App, Amazon will donate a small percentage of your purchase to our foundation. Since we are all trying to practice social distancing and many of you are ordering on Amazon anyway, go through Amazon Smile and choose the Chris Wivholm Foundation. Our work is continuous and unrelenting as we help the most vulnerable people.

We wanted to end this Newsletter with this beautiful song from Toby Mac, who lost his 21 year old son to Fentanyl poisoning. Just like Chris he was young and full of life. This is collage of pictures of Chris's travel around the world with his mom.  He passed away on March 30, 2018. There are soo many young people gone as the result of the opioid epidemic!
