Helping Make A Dream Come True

The “Can Do” community spirit of NetEffects’ staff and friends reached out to raise $4,370 that made the wish for a “shopping spree” for 17-year old Tierra, come true. Tierra has Lupus Cerebritis/Vasculitis. When asked what her wish would be, she said she wanted nothing more than to do something she’s never had the opportunity to do — go on a shopping spree. A very happy young woman got her wish. Thanks to all that helped make this Holiday Season a lot brighter for one brave young teenager.
