January Update:

We made dream catchers with the kids of D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s today!💖✌🏼

The kids loved it and were so creative with their designs!

Even the high school boys who at first were acting too cool for the craft ended up participating and making them for others they cared about.

One sweet girl asked if they actually work and I told her I think they do. She was so excited to have good dreams after today.
Another boy, no more than 10 years old, said he was going to hang it up and hoped he wouldn’t have bad dreams for the first time in 3 years.😭

These kids have suffered the worst of abuse and neglect, filling them with trauma and fear. It breaks my heart when I think about it because they are SO amazing.

Committing a couple hours one Saturday a month is easy peezy when it means so much to them. It’s about developing relationships and showing them that they are cared for and worth showing up for.

If you’re interested in volunteering, we are always looking for help with these events and workshops leader to run the events! Please reach out if you’re wanting to help and want to have a low commitment volunteer opportunity that has GREAT reward! ☺️ these kids are light.

Cheers to the weekend and having sweet dreams💕

December Update:

It was party time at Chicktime this month! We enjoyed crafts, games, and lots of food with the children at St. John’s home.

November Update:

Had a great time with the kids of D.A. Blodgett yesterday! We decorated cookies and I’m pretty sure they ate more frosting than anything. We also had the biggest turn out yet for Chicktime volunteers! It makes us so excited to see this baby organization beginning to grow!

**We had about 40 kids come to this event, but due to privacy and the sensitive nature of their trauma, pictures can not be taken of the kids. Just know that they are light in this place💛

August Update:

This month, we made bullet journals with the kids and really worked on being creative with our writing! It was quite relaxing and so fun to spend time with them learning how to let our creativity flow!!

June Update:

We had SO much fun at Chicktime July… even if the day didn’t quite go as planned! LOL We didn’t think this one through all the way… what started out as marbled paper making turned into just colored shaving cream fun….

 

June Update:

YAY! Our first Chicktime GR is in the books. It was a small crowd but totally worth the time. Our girls were camera shy today but here is some of their work! Thank you to everyone who helped make the launch of Chicktime Grand Rapids so special and we can’t wait to see you all again next month!
