We are suckers for a fundraiser here at Wells + Associates. Including when it comes with a Dress Down Day. 🙂 Today’s focus: donating money to the National Kidney Foundation for Kidney Awareness Month.
The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the United States dedicated to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.
