Testimonial

I was sick and tired of sitting at my desk all day, but now I get to run around with my Pal between classes, and my mom doesn’t have to tell me to ‘Sit still!’ while I’m on my Zoom classes anymore.

“I wish I could hug my grandma, but because of the virus, I only get to FaceTime her sometimes. Now I can hold my Pal and take care of it just like my grandma takes care of me.
