Hey guys! Long time no post hey?
I had several posts all ready to go and was just about to schedule them to publish when my computer decided to completely crater on me and I lost them all! As you can imagine, I was not a happy girl.
Fast forward almost a month, and I have a new laptop, have set it up the way I need it, have learned to use it, and am ready to try again! This time I am going to tell you about a wonderful cause that I am hoping you all can help me support! I am also going to ask...no BEG you all to SHARE SHARE SHARE AND SHARE this post some more! We all seem to have a quick to share response when it is a joke or some political insult to "the other side" but when it comes to the really important stuff, most shy away. I hope all who this post reaches is compelled to SHARE. Awareness will create support!
While we are all whining and complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves about all of the social and personal restrictions that the Covid epidemic has put on us, and how much our lives have changed, there is something even more upsetting that many of us would never think of. Child Sexual Abuse. With many people being so restricted and confined to home, abuse is a horrific reality for far too many kids.
Is there anything more disturbing than someone stealing the innocence of a child? NO. I don't think so. Our kids are so very precious...and there is never any good excuse for abuse! When I heard about the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch, and all the good it does, I was instantly compelled to do what I can to help.
Little Warriors is a national charitable organization focused on the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. They also advocate on behalf of and with child sexual abuse survivors. Every year Little Warriors’ Be Brave Ranch welcomes nearly 100 sexually abused children and teens from across Canada to receive intensive, specialized treatment for child sexual abuse.
Helping these kids is not an inexpensive undertaking and that is where you and I come in! They NEED OUR HELP.
I recently met an amazing woman named Donna.
Donna is not only and inspiration and passionate supporter of Little Warriors... she, herself is a survivor of child sexual abuse. Her story is both heartbreaking and inspiring. I am so proud to call her my friend.
I am super proud and excited to become a supporter of the Little Warriors.
My little company 19 8ighty 9ine Design is planning to regularly donate items to the silent auction and as many items to the ranch (clothing items, blankets etc) as I possibly can. This brings me to how YOU can help.
Remember me saying I am donating items for a silent auction? Well it's coming up soon!
Please join us on May 6th for the 8th Annual Little Warriors Be Brave Virtual Luncheon!!!
Little Warriors Is in need of your support to help raise vital funds for the treatment of child sexual abuse and this year the luncheon will be virtual for across Canada participation!
The virtual silent auction starting this Monday is also full of some remarkable goodies, so we hope to see you then!
I do so hope you all will join in and help raise funds for this extremely important cause! And...if you cannot afford a monetary contribution...sharing is another way to help. Spread the word...SHARE THIS EVENT!!! THE MORE PEOPLE WHO KNOW...THE BETTER!
