One of our volunteers for Mass Appeal International will compete for the title of
Miss Massachusetts United States, and her platform is Child Abuse and Neglect! MA is #1 in the nation for child abuse and neglect. Mass Appeal International and Raspberry Berret are sponsoring her gown and coctail dress for the pageant.
She is a child abuse survivor, and she wants to give a voice, and strength to children that stand in the same shoes she did as a child. She has a powerful story to tell about growing up in abuse and loosing her classmate Jeffery Curley to child abuse. She lived to tell the story, he did not.
Heaven Bereket joined Mass Appeal International in the fight for children's rights, and has testified at the MA State House to get tougher sentencing for child predators. She will be with us on April 5th at the Million March Against Child Abuse - MACA Boston MA. She is Heaven Bereket contestant #2. I am proud to be her mentor. click on the link for more info.
I sit on the board for Hallmark Health Systems. The night before our annual meeting, I sat in the hospital for 24 hrs with my foster child who needed medical care. She received top quality care and service. I was able to tell that to the CEO at our meeting.

Supporting one of my favorite charities at the Snow Ball, and Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas! Champaign Wishes and Caviar Dreams for the New Year!
The mission of the gala is to have a positive impact on the development of youth in the Greater Boston area by supporting programs for educational, social and character development.
We thank all of our volunteers and corporate partners for making this our 13th successful year of community service.
Thanksgiving and Christmas calls our attention to hunger and poverty each year, as it is an American tradition in which we give thanks to God for our health, prosperity, and abundant harvests. We remember those who do not have as much. Mass Appeal International addresses these issues 365 days a year by feeding and clothing over 2000 people each month. I give God Thanks and Praise for my fabulous volunteer staff and corporate sponsors who make it possible.
