Justin’s Beach House needs your help

Hey gang, hope all is well with everyone today. Recently I chatted with the folks with Justin’s Beach House in Bethany Beach, DE.

This entire organization was founded on the desire of one individual to “share” what made him “live” or live for, in the time that he could....
