Certainly you are a little like me.
When you hear about people struggling with big problems, don’t you wish you had more money, time, energy, or expertise to help? I do, too … but what can I do?
I told myself to stop making excuses and start finding ways to help. This is what this website is about. It’s an exploration–how can I provide resources to skilled agencies that protect children? It’s about me doing instead of procrastinating.
This is my way of generating resources for charities that are important to me, my family, and close friends.
Do you think it could be improved? Good. Go for it. I hope your idea for making positive changes in your community is better than mine. There’s lots of room for good ideas

At year end, 2018, we donated
$200 to Pediatric Interim Care Center (PICC)–They are the nation’s first interim care nursery for drug-exposed and medically fragile newborns. Founded in 1990, PICC’s model program has given more than 3,100 infants a safe and healthy start in life. PICC provides 24-hour medical monitoring and nursing care to fill the gap between hospital and home for infants recovering from prenatal drug exposures or other medical difficulties. PICC’s pioneering program also facilitates visitation for families, provides caregiver training, follows the babies after they leave, and offers a range of community outreach and education services. They are located in Kent, Washington, 20 miles southeast of Seattle. (See http://www.picc.net)
$200 to International Church of the Foursquare Gospel for their Disaster Relief’s Project Nourish, which works to mitigate starvation in East and Central Africa. (See https://resources.foursquare.org/tag/foursquare-disaster-relief/)
