My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CANDLE, Inc., Butler, PA, USA
In 2017, I attended a Reality Tour event with my son who was then in 6th grade in Cranberry Township Pennsylvania. Saying that this event "moved" me would be a huge understatement. First and foremost, my son loved the program and felt a true sense of accomplishment when he pledged to never do drugs, which led the two of us toward having an awesome conversation about the perils of teen drug usage. Secondly, it resonated with me as I unfortunately experienced the loss of many childhood friends when I was a teenager in the early 1980's in the DC area. I strongly feel that, had a program like this, with its very grounded approach, been available when I was a teen, a good number of teen lives would have been saved. I loved every aspect of this program. The reading materials, skits, and overall presentation are all crafted in a way that is positively impactful. Simply put, this is a must see event.
