Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Project Nightlight's mission is to inspire children to overcome abuse.
Project Nightlight uses short films, music, and apparel to grab kids attention and inspire them to speak out against abuse . We provide volunteer guest speakers, public service announcements, and printed materials to educate both children and adults on the recognizing and reporting abuse. All of this with hip attitude! We are working hard to change the negative social stigma associated with talking about abuse. Children should feel empowered to report abuse, not hide it because they are ashamed .
We also work with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services to provide foster children with much needed items, such as clothing, blankets, and toiletries and most of all, support and love. We have various programs for these kids, including animal therapy for those medically fragile children who must live their lives in hospitals.
