Beautiful Giveaway for An Important Cause!

5 Aug

I want to tell you about a wonderful event that’s coming up — 

The Child Rescue Association of North America is a non-profit organization in the United States and Canada that exists to rescue children from the horrors of human trafficking. Child trafficking is the business of removing children from their homes and families, transporting them elsewhere, whether elsewhere within the country or overseas, to be put to use by others, usually to make money. The purpose of this trafficking is child labor or child sexual exploitation.”

In order to combat this heartbreaking problem they are holding an incredible benefit concert to help increase awareness and end this terrible practice. The CANDLELIGHT SERENADE ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL will be held on August 21st at Thanksgiving Point in Utah. 

Proceeds from Candlelight Serenade will go to combat child sex slavery by being donated to Child Rescue and the local Crime Force to increase their resources to fight the child sex industry. 

These are some of the artists performing at the event:

Dashboard Confessionals
Neon Trees
Reliant K
Third Eye Blind

I know that many of you do not live in Utah and are not able to come, but you can help get the word out about this event. Maybe some of your blog readers are from Utah or their readers are!

Samster Mommy Tutu Drive
 My friend Natasha from Samster Mommy contacted me and told me about a wonderful event — Tutu Drive 2010 — she is sponsoring for The Princess Alexa Foundation
This foundation is amazing —They take dress up clothes and match them with kids who are seriously ill so they can have a bit of fun and make-believe. A little something to put a smile on their faces during such a hard time. Isn’t that sweet – and a wonderful idea!!!
The foundation was started by a mom named Crys in honor of her daughter Alexa…

Alexa began battling cancer just before her 2nd birthday, throughout her battle with cancer Alexa loved to go everywhere in princess dresses & became known as “Princess Alexa”. Sadly, she passed away in 2008 but her legacy can live on by bringing joy to sweet children battling illness.
Go over to Samster Mommy and find out how you can help. There are two ways: You can buy a tutu during the Tutu Drive or you can make a Tutu to donate — or you can do both! Go grab the button and let’s spread the word!!
