I'm very happy and proud to have been selected as one of the winners and hope that the poem along with the winners from the other categories can help raise awareness for what is such an important cause, especially with what is going on at the present time.
With all the financial distress that so many people are suffering a current, loan sharks will be in their element and so people who may fall into the hands of such unscrupulous people will need all the support they can get, support which Stop Loan Sharks provides.
