Sorry for my silence... I have been biting my tongue as we wait for word...
But today I am very happy to announce that we received a determination letter from the IRS officially recognizing Starfysh as a tax-exempt non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
My self-imposed silence is over. We now may (and will!) boldly move forward in bringing compassion, dignity, and hope to an island of people I have grown to love an awful lot.
Spread the word. A Starfysh is born.
