In honor of our 100th anniversary and as part of our commitment to the community, Crain Communications is challenging its Detroit employees to raise or donate $100 each to The Children’s Center. Employees are able to get involved by making their own fundraising page to enlist friends and family to help them reach the $100 mark. Our goal is to raise $10,000 during the month of September by having at least 100 employees either raise or donate $100. Please click “Fundraise for this campaign” to get started.
About The Children’s Center:
Have you ever thought about what it’s like for a young child to be trapped in a cycle of abuse, poverty, and neglect? Or for children who struggle with severe behavioral, educational and emotional challenges? At The Children’s Center, that’s ALL we think about. Did you know... A child is abused or neglected every 18 minutes. 1 in 5 children have a diagnosable mental disorder. Nearly half of Michigan's foster children live in Wayne County. Imagine 12 year old Kara trying to concentrate at school, when she’s consumed by flashbacks of being raped at her friend’s sleepover party after all the other girls fell asleep. And worse yet, she’s pregnant. True story. With your support the traumatic beginnings tens of thousands of Detroit’s children experience don’t have to be the end of their story. You can help them heal, thrive and become the amazing people they were born to be. Your gift will turn trauma into triumph, fear into courage and despair into determination. A gift of $10, $20, $50 or more can change the trajectory of a child’s life. And we believe that when you lift a child’s spirit, you ultimately lift an entire community.
