3. And now for our biggest update, the next charity of the month.......*drumroll please*......
Lisscat Creations will be donating 10% of proceeds to the "Joyful Heart Foundation"
Started by actress, Mariska Hargitay, The mission of the Joyful Heart Foundation is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, and to she light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.
JHF was suggested to us by a friend. After digging in and researching this organization we felt so very drawn to support them!
Many of you probably saw the 20/20 special on the other night that featured an interview with Jaycee Dugard. How could it not touch your heart to hear the story of this young girl who was kidnapped and held captive for 18 years. She endured rape, birthed two babies, all while living in a small enclosure in the rapists backyard. But she is now free and back with her family. Jaycee is overcoming what happened to her, beginning to the process of healing and is still ALIVE.
After watching this program, this was sure confirmation that Lisscat Creations supporting Joyful Hearts Foundation was the right move!
Though 10% of all artwork sold this month with be donated to JHF, we would like to show you our two newest pieces made specifically with this organization in mind....
