Sometimes kids have to grow up way too soon. Violence in the home is one of the brutal realities kids sometimes have to face. That’s why my wife and I started a charity called Friends & Helpers, to support victims of domestic abuse.
It’s not something that’s fun to talk about, but women who fear for their safety have to run away from home with nothing but their kids and the clothes on their backs. They run to shelters for a place to stay, counseling, and help getting back into the work force so they can start rebuilding their families with love, and without violence.
The holidays can be especially difficult for these broken families, and that’s where we come in. At Friendsandhelpers.org we get lists from each specific mom and child, and we match them with volunteers who adopt them, and provide exactly what they want. Our biggest request this year? Food. For Christmas. We also make thousands of stockings packed with gifts and candy. 100% of what you give goes directly to those who need it.
If you’d like to help, go to our website at Friendsandhelpers.com. You can donate any amount with a credit card, or with a text.
Dial 27138 and text the word and amount “STOCKING 25.” That donation will give a child a stocking filled with gifts. You can also donate your time. Anything you can give is very much appreciated and will make a direct impact on a family this year!
