  • @CyndiNobles Hi Cyndi! Glad you liked it! It's a really important issue to us as well, we wanted to make sure we presented the info in an easyily-understandable format that still got the point across. So may people don't even think about washing their hands and it's so preventable, with just a little awareness!
