First of all I would like to thank you for stopping by, and hope to see your name in the donation box. I know financially times are complicated, I myself am unemployed, but I was able to make a small donation of only $10 to my own funraiser.My goal is to raise $1000 to help break the cycle of violence for children,women and even men that have been abuse. I hope you too can help make a small donation. This is a serious matter that needs immediate attention. I really hope you can help out in any way possible. It is for a great cause, and only you can make a difference. Thank you so very much for stopping by.<3

Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the U.S. 60% of sexual assaults are never reported to the police. 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.
CATS (Center for Assault Treatment Services at Northridge Hospital) provides 24/7 services to victims of sexual assault and abuse of all ages in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. Each year we serve 1,000 victims, 1/4 of them are children age 6 or younger. At CATS, victims are cared for in a nurturing environment with their safety and well being a primary concern.
CATS collects forensic evidence which helps law enforcement and the D.A.'s Office get the abusers off the street, and educates the community about the importance of child abuse reporting.
