Did you know every 10 seconds a child is abused?
I know, you're probably thinking - 'whoa, Nicole - that's a little heavy and uncomfortable chatter for a crafty shop' - and - I would agree. But, I bet you're like me - and as much as you'd like to ignore all the horrible things in this world, there's something always nudging you to 'do something' - 'care more' - or simply just *try*....
It's not something we talk about, really ever - but, child abuse and the foster care system, are both topics that have touched my extended family, and my husbands family directly.
I've been giving to a charity called Olive Crest, for the last couple years. And, more recently - last year, was invited to be on the board of trustees for our local Olive Crest. If you haven't heard of this organization, they work closely with families to stop the cycle of abuse. They offer services to kids phasing out of the 'system' and their real goal is to keep as many kids out of the CPS system as possible.
When you purchase, 'Because We Care', $10 from every purchase is going straight to Olive Crest.
'Because We Care' - Because I care! Because caring, seems insignificant, but is the first step to real and lasting change!
