Mark Twyman – Founder Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
"'Seniors Dreams' improves the quality of life for seniors and enlists the help of the community to provide special opportunities to seniors who have worked hard to build our communities. In these difficult financial times there are many seniors who lack the funds to make even their simplest dreams come true. Simple things – like a visit to the hair salon or fishing trip – can be impossible for many seniors. A trip to visit a loved one or a special friend is only a dream for many."
