A lot has been going lately so I have not been doing a lot of blogging so I apologize for that!
I really wanted to make a post about a recent event that I sang at; the Child Advocated of Fort Bend Voices for Children Breakfast.
This is my third year singing at this amazing event, and each year I hear stories and statistics that make my heart drop. Hearing things like “1 in 4 girls, and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the time they are 18” is awful. Thankfully there are organizations like Child Advocated of Fort Bend that help these children through their hard times.
In Fort Bend County alone they serve over 1,400 children in one year. This organization has enough volunteers to cover all of the children that they help, however not all Child Advocate centers have enough volunteers to mentor the children, and help them through the hard times. If you live in a county that has an overwhelming amount of children, but not enough volunteers, please find a way to get involved! Organizations like these are always accepting volunteers, and they are so grateful for the change that you make in society!
I LOVE volunteering whenever I can, it is so great to help out in and around your community, making it a better place!
Now I know this post was not very music oriented, however I really wanted to let you all know about the Child Advocates organizations and all that they do! They are truly amazing and like they say, “There is NO Excuse for child abuse.”
