Hello everyone! Although we meet every second and fourth Sunday of the month for the Bridging Rainbows support group meeting, this time we are coming together on the third Sunday as well, 20th of November, 2022 at 2030 hours Indian Standard Time, just to stand in solidarity with one of our old support group member who is going to be missing her animal companion on Thanksgiving week. The pain and void of a companion animal especially comes to hit hard during occasions, festivities and celebrations because we have beautiful memories associated with them. No one should ever feel alone in times of need or suffer in silence. All of you who may want to join, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting ID and passcode.
