Would you recommend Dreamcatcher Foundation?

by Julie Helen J. (July 9, 2015)
I think it is a wonderful organization, I would've loved to have had something like dreamcatchers growing up. My life would prolly be a whole lot different. But by the Grace of God,I have a life today and am clean and sober,and my children love me so I couldn't ask for more. That is why I would like to be able to give back and serve the purpose the Good Lord kept me around for. I just watched the dreamcatcher documentary, and Brenda and all the other women that are angels put here for those girls. God bless you Brenda, I love you,who you are and what you do. I hope your knees are new and pain free,you deserve at least that!!So I hope to find something that I can do to help anyone (including,not limited to) ,animals,addicts,abused women,abused and neglected children,the hungry,homeless,helpless,disaster help.....whatever is needed or wanted I would like to do,please.
