Geez, it’s hard to believe that we are now into the fifth month of the year. Time flies when you are doing good stuff. Thanks to all who journeyed over to the Beyond Fences website last month and donated, volunteered, or just sent some good vibes to that awesome organization.
May’s charity of the month is our neighbor just around the corner, SAFEchild. Child abuse and neglect, sadly, is a common problem. 1 in 7 children have experienced abuse and/or neglect in some form in the past year and that is likely an underestimate. That’s why it is so important to support an organization like SAFEchild who’s mission is to eliminate child abuse in Wake County. Here’s a bit about them.
SAFEchild – which stands for Stop Abuse For Every child – supports families having a wide range of needs. Expertly trained professionals and volunteers build strong families in which parents nurture thriving children.
SAFEchild annually protects 13,000 children, empowers 1,650 parents through education and support programs, and guides 12,000 Wake County first graders through the school-based Funny Tummy Feelings program.
Please head on over to their website at safechildnc.org to read more. Donate if you can, sign up to be a volunteer or visit their wishlist and see if you have any items that can be donated. Thanks so much and have a great month of May!
