Denver Children's Home Christmas Charity!!!


This year I have decided that instead of spoiling all my friends with lavish gifts I am going to help donate to the Denver Children's Home wish list!!!

The Denver Children's Home's mission is to provide a therapeutic, safe place for emotionally distressed children, adolescents and their families to heal and grow. Unfortunately, government grants they receive isn't even close to being enough to care for growing children's needs. Surprisingly enough the government only gives $86 to each child for an entire lifetime's worth of necessities.

For more info please go to www.denverchildrenshome.org

The Denver Children's Home is located at:
Denver Children's Home
1501 Albion Street
Denver, Colorado 80220
Phone: 303-399-4890; 877-895-4890
Main Fax: 303-399-9846
info@denverchildrenshome.org

If anyone is interested in donating feel free to contact me about the attached "wish list" which can also be found on the website or if you can go directly to the site and make a monetary donation. Either way, think of the smiling face of a child knowing you've made a difference.

Also if anyone would like to email me directly about this feel free to at: terra@theterrasmith.com
Happy Holidays!!!!
