Team UPECO member Val (Valburgesscollage) has been selected to be a delegate for the American Speech Hearing Association to Brazil this August. The trip unfortunately has to be funded by her and is very costly. She is honored to go. She will visit clinics and share professionally with their developing professionals.
This treasury was put together to help Val fund her trip. I called on all team UPECO members to donate (pay it forward) one piece of their wares to a treasury. 100% of the sales from the donated pieces will go to Val for her trip. There are 10 items in this treasury that are donated!
