What is CASA?

CASA helps abused and neglected children in need.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is an amazing organization. They provide special advocates for children who are in need.  They are a national organization with chapters all across America. From their website:

CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a

child’s safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations and help the judge decide what’s best for the child.

For children who’ve been abused or neglected, CASA means having a home instead of feeling lost, and being a priority instead of feeling invisible. For volunteers, CASA is a life-changing experience that makes our community a better place.

I’m fundraising for CASA of Travis Country (Texas).

CASA at workIn case you haven’t heard, Austin is exploding. People move here every day. It’s crazy.  As the population continues to grow, so do the number of children in need. CASA does what they can for children who need help, but they need help keeping up. They need donations (from people like you and me) and volunteers.

There are children out there who need help.  They don’t care where the money or help comes from.  If you have a few spare dollars, please support my efforts to raise money for CASA! The race is September 13th, 2015.

I can use every penny you are willing to send my way.  And thanks!
