Featured Promise Story

Napkin Notes Dad 


This month we featured the moving story of Garth Callaghan, a father who made an amazing promise to his daughter. When Garth was diagnosed with cancer he decided that he wanted his daughter to have a napkin note from him everyday until she finished school. This led him to make a promise to write 826 napkin notes for his daughter Emma. 


At this month's chapter meeting 3 lucky winners were chosen at random to receive a signed copy of Napkin Notes, Garth's own written story of his promise!
