Natalia Pilato would like to take this moment to thank Miriam Antoinette, founder of For the Children, for hiring Jeffry, a wonderful, humble, skilled and kind worker, to assist me in the last week of installing the Mural. He worked from morning till night with no complaints and took an incredible amount of initiative to get the job done. Thank you Jeffry for your tireless contribution and positive vibes!
