Hi Friends,

Thanks for checking out my fundraising page for Team CASA.  Your support will help CASA of Santa Cruz County continue to train, support and supervise volunteers who serve as mentors and powerful advocates for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.

Not only do I get to work for this incredible organization with an amazing, dedicated, and competent staff, I am also a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for an 8 year old girl. It's hard to put into words how meaningful it is for me to get to be a part of this girl's life and speak on her behalf and for her best interest in my court report.  As an officer of the court, I know that Judge Gallagher, the social workers and attorneys all value the input I have because they know I get to hang out and see my girl every week, as well as talking to her caregivers, teacher and others involved in her life.

This is the most heart-breaking, fulfilling, meaningful and fun volunteer role I have ever had the opportunity to do.  Some of the highlights for me:
  • Reading to a therapy dog through the public libraries Tales for Tails program
  • Beach clean up day
  • Dollar Tree - she loves it as much as I do!!
  • Watching her at dance class (she has a scholarship as a CASA child)
  • Getting my butt kicked at "slug bug" every week
  • People and nature watching on West Cliff Drive
  • Shopping the 10 for $10 rack at Claire's in the mall - I swear she could be my kid!

Thank you for your donation.  I am so proud to be a part of CASA and am so confident that this organization is a good steward of your gift.  If you would like to find out more about volunteering, or other ways to help, please check out www.casaofsantacruz.org or contact me, I am CASA's Outreach Coordinator after all!

Thanks again for your support.  It means a lot to me!
