Thank you from Brazil

Dear Betty,

You probably don’t remember me, but I am one of the hundreds of people you help  in the Neotropics. I still have my BEX donated binoculars, which are in great shape! Since we first met (about 10 years ago), I started and defended my PhD at the Louisiana State University, and I am currently a post doc at the Universidade Federal de Roraima, in northern Brazil.

I appreciate and congratulate you for the amazing job you have done over the decades!!!!!

Yours sincerely,
