Relief Run Color Blast 2016

Another Relief Run Color Blast in the history books. This was definitely one to remember! We grossed nearly $20,000 thanks to generous sponsors and community members, with 50 teams signing up. Thank you to all those who helped us have fun while raising money to keep children safe and help them prepare for kindergarten. Your participation didn’t just make this event great, it makes a difference! See you April 29, 2017!

Pinwheels for Prevention

pin3_600Blue and silver pinwheels are on display in yards and businesses across the Western Treasure Valley — and at hundreds of other sites across the nation, including the National Mall in Washington, D.C. — on behalf of child abuse prevention.

“While the pinwheel creates a memorable and compelling visual, it is the story behind the pinwheel that makes the biggest mark,” Pamela Heisler, prevention specialist at the Children’s Trust Fund of Oregon, said in a news release. “The pinwheel is a sign of hope, of the safe and carefree childhood all children deserve.”

Pinwheel gardens are “planted” in honor of Prevent Child Abuse America’s Pinwheels for Prevention campaign, which seeks to educate people about child abuse; promote child- and family-friendly services; and encourage volunteering with organizations that oppose child abuse, according to the organization’s website.

Make This Year’s Birthday REALLY Special

(Sing:) Duh-nuh, duh-nuh, duh-nuh … “They say it’s your birthday!”

Well, you could have your friends sing to you, but why not make this year’s birthday REALLY special?!?!

When you’re asked, “What do you want for your birthday,” answer, “I’d like you to make a donation to the Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery in my honor. There can be no greater gift than to think I helped to keep a child safe, or helped a stressed-out parent to keep it together and grow stronger.”

After all, wrinkles and gray hairs may stink, but making a real difference in the life of an at-risk family is totally awesome!
