Your Life Counts is grateful to all the many people who have helped YLC in so many ways since 2000. We are including a number of individuals below. There are too many people to mention as volunteers individually. But we’re grateful to you all. We also note that some people do not wish to be named for their own reasons of privacy, etc.
