When a family flees their home because of sexual assault or domestic violence their life becomes flip-flopped, often their whereabouts secret, and their future very uncertain. The holiday season can be especially difficult time of year for these families.
You can help make the Winter Holiday they observe a little brighter. Life-Span, a Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Advocacy and Counseling organization in Chicago, is collecting new toys so their client's children will receive a gift. It’s easy to give. All you have to do is go to the Amazon link below (or type in a.co/2fBGOfP ) that will take you directly to the Life Span Wish List! Deadline is Weds. December 13th.
NOTE: If you are wondering how you will know where to send your donation, look for “Life Spans Gift Registry Address” in your address list when it's time to check out. (that was the step that confused me at first!)
So you know: Life Span offers free legal and counseling services for people who've suffered from Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. For more info on this worthy organization go to www.lifespan.org
I realize there are many worthy organizations to give to at this time of year. If not this one, there are many others who will benefit from your generosity. Spread your love! Questions? call me at 773-612-8822.
Wishing all my friends a very happy holidays and peace in the new year. With love,
