BENEFITING: The Sage Collector

THE STORY:

You say you want to help kids. You say you want to make a difference. Do you really? Will you step outside of your comfort zone to make that difference, to help kids who need you? You see, YOU have the power to break the cycle. YOU have the power to change the direction in a child’s life. YOU have the power to help a child heal. Now, the real question is, will you? Some of you will say you are too busy with work. Some of you will say that you are too busy with other commitments, busy with taking care of your pets, busy managing other issues in your life. Some of you will even say that it isn’t your job to care for kids in need. So, you look the other way, the cycle continues, and our society suffers as a result. Break the Cycle is our theme for 2016. Foster & at risk youth typically come from families where their parents or other members of their family were placed into the foster care system, as well; parents who were unable to break their own cycle of pain and suffering for their children. What is important to remember is that many biological parents of foster children were abused themselves, and know of no other way when raising children. With no positive role model for what a healthy, loving, and encouraging parent is supposed to be like, many of these biological parents of kids in foster care simply do not know how to raise a child, how to be that protective, supportive, and loving parent each child needs and deserves. Even more disturbing these kids are more likely to abuse and neglect their own children when they have them. Funds raised for the Break the Cycle project will be used to spread awareness to the community, educate people on various ways to help break the cycle (such as foster parents, volunteering, advocating), provide programs to build confidence in foster & at-risk kids. Provide free clothing, shoes and other essentials to youth in order to build up confidence even further. It’s a cycle that needs to be broken. A cycle you can help to break.
