I love supporting local charities, and Kids Kottage is one of them. Here is their description from their site:
"We offer a 24-hour support service to parents who need immediate support or respite when faced with a crisis.
To stop the threat of abuse and to minimize the stress these parents are facing, we offer to take the children for up to 72 hours. The children are kept safe at the Kottage while their parents, relieved of parenting responsibilities for a short time, identify and implement plans to solve or mitigate the issue of the crisis."
When a child arrives at Kids Kottage, they are given a choice of stuffie from the stuffed animal bin. Kids Kottage posted this week on their Facebook Page that they are almost out of stuffies!
So let's make sure they have all the stuffies they need! Post a photo of your stuffie on my Facebook page and I'll donate $5 for every stuffie to Kids Kottage to meet their other needs (up to $500 so get posting those stuffed animals!!!).
