SUSANNE MENTZER has done it again – summoned her artistic resources to come to the aid of people in need, this time for the benefit of the victims of the wrathful typhoon that struck the Philippines. Pulling out all the stops, she has shown yet again her deep-seated devotion to serving causes bigger than herself.
