*This week I contacted two NFP one is Care another one is Aid to Artisans *
For Care, they told me they are in the busiest fund-racing season of the year, so it will be impossible to meet or even talk to them on the phone. Than finally I convinced them, and they transfer me to a staff Charles Adams. Than he said he will try to find someone to call me back but they never did.
For Aid to Artisans, Leah Waldman, Janet Solis and I would like to go there and meet with them together. I called them, but they never pick up their phone, and it always get into the voice mailbox. I left a message to tell them to give me a call back, but no one did. Leah Waldman will try to contact them again.
