In January, the Raider Coaches Wives chose a charity for our annual Lady Raider Football Camp, but last week we elected to change it to Child Abuse, in remembrance of my 19 month old cousin who was brutally beaten to death by the hands of his mother's boyfriend.
When I started researching websites, I got overwhelmed and decided to create my own. Its dedicated to Vincent, and I tell my story in the way in which it effected me and the way I saw it effect my family. I hope that wasn't selfish, it was just the easiest way I knew to do it. I hope no one in the family is offended. Please remember that I am NOT putting words into anybody's mouths- this is a story told from MY point of view.
I decided to put child abuse awareness together with my favorite activity, so through football I am hoping to raise awareness in the importance of preventing child abuse across Texas and Kansas. 48 other states need our help, but I think 2 states will be a good start:)
If you want to check it out, I am about halfway finished with it, I will be adding more and more as i see fit. I have a few things that I still want to go back and add, but I will not rush to do it. Please disregard grammatical mistakes, my editor hasn't had a chance to look it over yet:)
Raiders Against Child Abuse
I feel awful that we are pushing aside The Fairy Godmother Foundation, but I really feel this is what God is calling us to do. I PROMISE to make it up to TFGF in some form or fashion.
Please help me to spread the importance of Child Abuse Awareness by helping the Raider Wives with promoting the charity event as well as possibly a donation of any kind. It can even be an item for a door prize. Nothing is too small. If you could even forward the website on to a friend, we would be grateful!
Thank you for helping us make this possible!
