Welcome to the Special Care Focus – Taking Care of Yourself and Each Other. In order for everyone around the world to participate in a synchronized Care Focus, on Wednesday, August 5th, we have chosen three convenient times: 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 8 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 7 hours)*.
