Violence and Abuse

Interrupt my usual triviality for a seroius message. This Saturday, Tim and I are participating in SafePlace field day. SafePlace takes care of women and children who are raped and/or abused. Sadly, in these economic times, they are serving even more families. But of course, it's harder to raise money. They are currently in danger of losing their pre-school (for children who may not be safe attending an outside school). This saddens my heart.

The SafePlace services are amazing - they have a hotline, counseling, legal support, hospital support, a shelter, community outreach...the list goes on.

If you can spare even five dollars, it would really make a difference to these women and children. Your donation is tax-deductible and can be made here: Safeplace. Donations are being gathered until noon CST tomorrow.

Thank you!
