Review for sacred-Sexually Abused Children's Relief Endeavor, Overland Park, KS, USA
I became aware of this organization four years ago when I learned of how the organization came into existence back in 2006 and what they were doing to assist children who are victims of child sexual abuse whose family has been impacted financially. The founders and officers are passionate about the cause of helping these children and families transition out of their harmful situations. The founders, who themselves were affected by sexual abuse of a grand-daughter, have been effective in garnering help and support from their friends and other supporters to understand the importance of moving quickly and deliberately to help families in their time of desperation. The board works with Certified Child Advocacy Centers to provide help within 24 hours of a request because they belief that financial concern should not get in the way of protecting children. The board has also made it fun and satisfying for people to dig into their pockets and donate to the cause. Because most of the proceeds go directly to the affected families, supporters feel comfortable donating and knowing that their donations will not be used for operational expenses or wasted. Their largest fund raising event is their annual wine auction for which all the wine and other products for the auction are donated. The organization does not spend money putting on the event. Supporters provide the space, supplies and their services for this event. This is a fun event, which is usually a themed event during which attendees get into and stay in character. It can be funny seeing serious and professional people dress up and act otherwise. I would encourage anyone who is serious about protecting children to support this organization.
