Will You Help?

 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 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!  

Here are the details once more:


Little Warriors Be Brave Luncheon


May 06 2021


11:30 am - 1:30 pm


Edmonton, AB
The Be Brave Luncheon raises vital funds for the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch
The Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch is a specialized, intensive, trauma-informed, evidence-based treatment centre focused on helping children and adolescents who have been sexually abused, as well as their families.  Please join us from ANYWHERE for the live, virtual 8th Annual Be Brave Luncheon on Thursday, May 6th, 2021 from 11:45am-1:15pm.  This will be an uplifting, inspiring, one of a kind event as guest will hear from our Founder and Board Chair Glori Meldrum, Clinical Director Dr. Wanda Polzin and for the first time ever a survivor who is now an adult, will talk about her life changing experience at the Be Brave Ranch. 
Your attendance will help change the lives of children, youth and families who’ve been impacted by child sexual abuse.
YOU can help make a difference in the lives of these kids...and TOGETHER we can change the kid at a time. 
Now if you will excuse me...I am off to package up some wonderful items from my clothing and home decor line to send as donations!  

Nervous about where your donation will go?  I get that.   
Sometimes donations are not used as they should be.   
That is definitely not the case with Little Warriors...
As it turns out, my Cowboy knows Donna quite well and I confidently assure you every single thing she gathers as donations go directly to where it is intended.  

Until next time my friends...Stay safe and healthy
