  26. 26. A call out for information on awareness events went out over various mediums over the last year. The events in this presentation are those that were made known to me I am aware that there may be many more out there, and welcome more information on any others that should be added to this show, and am happy to add them. The purpose of the slide show is to show that there is a growing number of gifted awareness events world over- and we should never feel alone
