Every time I hear a news report of child abuse I cringe. It’s like my heart stops for a brief moment and I need to close my eyes to recompose myself. I can’t comprehend how anyone can hurt a child. I just can’t. There is no need or reason for it. If anyone feels the need to hurt a child they need to seek immediate help. There’s a place nearby that believes as I do: It Shouldn’t Hurt to Be a Child. The CARE House of Oakland County is our local Child Abuse and Neglect Council and I have so much respect and appreciation for their efforts in helping children.
The CARE House of Oakland County has a vision that all children are free from abuse and neglect. They provide programs and services for children and families which span a continuum of care. All programs and services are free of charge to the children and families served. The best things in life are free, they say. Being a child who is safe and getting any help needed should be free, too. The CARE House works on advocacy, community outreach, intervention, prevention and treatment.
When I heard that Huggies was giving ten $2,000 grants to community projects I knew I had to nominate the CARE House. From April 20th until June 25th, Huggies will be accepting all selfies of you and your baby with the hashtag #UltraHug, and featuring them in a collage on the campaign landing page. On July 6th, voting will begin to narrow down the 20 finalists to 10 winners who will win a $2,000 grant from Huggies for their nominated community initiative.
