LOVE is all YOU need!
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💕
