I turned 35 on March 22. To celebrate, I will move my body 35 miles on May 25 with a goal to raise money for The Christmas Box International. I need your help, so I request that you sponsor me with a donation. I really think we can raise $3500. Read more here.
The Christmas Box International partners with local, national, and international communities and groups to prevent child abuse and to improve the quality of life for children, teens and young adults who have been abused, neglected, or are facing homelessness. In 2017 alone, they served 10,162 unique children and teens who were victims of abuse, neglect, and homelessness.
Services offered by The Christmas Box International include:
- The Christmas Box Houses, which offer shelter and food, as well as on-site therapy, medical and dental evaluations, and recreational activities
- Christmas Box Resource Rooms, which are stocked with new donated supplies including clothing, bedding, baby items, school and hygiene kits, books, household items and toys to ease the financial costs on foster families, kinship placements, and at-risk young adults starting their journey into adulthood.
- International support to abused and neglected children in countries such as Haiti, Dominican Republic, Colombia, India, Kenya, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Thailand, Nepal and Ghana.
