THE STORY:

Thank you for supporting our charities!  These organizations mean so much to us.

- Courtney and Brendan

 

Brendan's charities:

Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley: Through AmeriCorps, Brendan spent two years working for Habitat for Humanity in Hickory, NC where he helped build houses for some of the most wonderful people in the world and will always cherish those times.   www.habitatcatawbavalley.org

Child's Play: Brendan has been playing video games since he was a little kid, when his sister got a Nintendo (NES) for Christmas in the early 80's.  As an avid gamer, Brendan supports this organization that provides video games and toys to children in more than 70 hospitals worldwide. Child's Play recently launced a pilot program providing these same services to domestic violence agencies.  www.childsplay.org

Courtney's charities:

REACH Beyond Domestic Violence: REACH provides safety and support to survivors of abuse (men, women, and children) while engaging communities to promote healthy relationships and prevent domestic violence.  Courtney has been the Development and Special Events Coordinator for REACH since 2008. www.reachma.org

The Global Child:  Based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, The Global Child is an NGO educating former street-working children.  In addition, they are provided with three meals a day, life skills, a cultural understanding of their country, and training for employment and citizenship.  After a life-changing visit in 2006, Courtney became the Director of Community Outreach (a volunteer position).  She and her parents visit the school every two years.www.theglobalchild.org
