Happy New Year

We would like to wish all InPACT members,  their families and all people out there a most happy new year.

May 2014 present a year of blessings, of positive change, of reflection, and mostly of love to all life.

May your actions for the new year impact positively on the life of others.  And may you be a beacon of hope to those in need.

Love and light.
