Mare Andreozzi talks about what it means to sponsor a student:
"My husband and I are thrilled to be sponsoring first grader Westberlie at the HEART in Haiti School. She is in our thoughts every day and I keep her picture in my office. When my grandchildren visit, I show them Westberlie and talk about how we are helping her to receive an education. We hope the little we can do for this sweet girl from afar, will keep her safe and fed both in mind and body."
