We’ll talk more over time about trauma, but I hope this illustrates something for you.Out of the 10 possible components of trauma that I listed, the work that The Apparent Project is doing has a positive impact on 7 of them.So there’s a 70% chance that we can reduce or eliminate trauma through our work.Will you join us? Will you help us give Haitian families a better opportunity for a good life?
For three days, someone is able to stop at the market on the way home from work and buy food to feed their family.For three days, someone is able to set aside some money to send to their family in Jeremie who are trying to rebuild from the Hurricane.For three days, someone at the market is going to go home with a little bit more in their pocket – maybe enough to feed their children.For three days, two families have children who will get something to eat that day.
First, if you are reading this, thank you. It means a lot to know that someone cares to take the time.
Secondly, for about 3 months, I’ve been doing a good bit of my writing about adoption, orphans, vulnerable children, family preservation at The Apparent Project’s website. You can read the posts there at http://apparentproject.org/our-blog/.
I’m going to start, when I post something over there, posting an excerpt of it here and a link back so that you can read and decide if you want to read more.
I hope you will.
