"It is with great pleasure and a feeling of immense gratitude that I write this letter of recommendation, both personally and on behalf of The Desmond Tutu TutuDesk Campaign, for Sarah Hamilton, a truly extraordinary human being that I have the privilege of now calling a colleague and also a special friend for life. I would recommend Sarah highly, as she not only has a heart of enormous compassion, but also for her true grit, utter determination and deeply focused drive to work towards making the world a better place - for all its citizens. I can say with complete conviction that any organization will be a far better one for having Sarah working with them and benefiting from her solid work ethic, deep compassion and humanity .... the Desmond Tutu TutuDesk Campaign most certainly is."
