Thank you for your support of LALtoday

A couple of weeks ago, we took you behind the scenes to share how things were going at LALtoday and asked our readers if they would be willing to make a small contribution to help support our work.

As of today, over 86 of you have stopped what you were doing to send over some love and appreciation. In addition to the $2,000+ dollars contributed, what tickled us the most were the words of encouragement, affirmation, and recognition.

So today, we want to say thank you. We are sincerely grateful for your support and we couldn’t do this without you

Please keep in touch. Send us an email at [email protected] or drop us a message on social, and we look forward to seeing you every morning right here in your inbox.
