Sobering statistics

Did you know that on any given night, America has 1,000,000 homeless teenagers? Wow. Here in Anchorage, AK there is an organization called Covenant House that serves as a "safe haven" for homeless teenagers.
I was invited to participate in Covenant House's annual candlelight vigil to bring awareness to this section of the homeless population. Homelessness is a dire predicament to be in anywhere, but especially in a state where the temperatures are below freezing for 7 months of the year! Please do what you can to support the stamping out of homelessness nationwide.

I hope to teach my daughter as she gets older to volunteer her time in support of causes and charities she believes in. Right now she's participating by association!

  1. She won't have to be "taught" when she's older, because she'll come by it naturally, simply following the great example set by her Mama. You are teaching her just by doing....every little girl should be so lucky.
