Newest Awards for this Site
(Awards Mid July - December 1998)

I am pleased to announce that because the site has been accumulating so many awards, and wonderful comments with the awards in our eight months on the web, that it has become necessary to create a second page, and soon will be going to a third page.

Supportive Souls Award

The Supportive Souls Award is given to sites that provide help to the internet community. There are so many sites that I have found on the net that try and help people...not asking for anything in exchange. The sites awarded are geared towards Physicial Health, Mental Health, Environmental concerns, Animal Rights, Self-Help, Learning Disabilities and other similar sites that offer accurate educational information in a supportive and caring way. I have visited your site often and have always found it a good resource. Thank you so much for creating a very important site. You have created a web site that offers accurate educational information in a supportive and caring way.
