Please Return the Favor to Hearts and Crosses

Hearts and Crosses donated two beautiful plaques to Michael Johnson's family, one of which was displayed on his car at the funeral service. Please return their kindness by donating to their fundraiser. The TV show COPS and Langley Productions is matching all donations made, dollar for dollar, up to $30,000.


This fundraiser is key because the equipment they use is being relocated to Washington state. The money raised will go to purchase the equipment and supplies to keep Hearts and Crosses running without missing a beat.
