Like many nonprofit charitable organizations, Illuminate Colorado has had to cancel one of our favorite fundraising and awareness events of the year – the Acts of Kindness Breakfast – as a result of the Stay at Home Order in place in Colorado.
This event has always been a free event, giving our supporters the opportunity to introduce new friends and colleagues to our mission and raise funds to support the prevention of child maltreatment in Colorado. This year, our Board of Directors and staff members are asking everyone connected to the work of Illuminate Colorado to join us in a Day of Kindness next Tuesday to continue this tradition.
Join us on Tuesday, April 21st to raise funds to support Illuminate Colorado and spread kindness throughout the day.
Over the last year our organization has grown and evolved. We continue to support our partners across the state, but we have also expanded our direct service offerings with programming like Circle of Parents and Bloom Yoga. We are extremely excited to be launching our Mobile Child Care Pilot that will serve families seeking substance use treatment in Colorado. This new and innovative program is the first of its kind and we are so hopeful for the impact it will have on families.
During these challenging times, we are also continuing to find innovative solutions to connect families to support their children. Many of our Circle of Parents groups have moved online using video conferencing. Bloom Yoga is going virtual and our training team has developed new ways to deliver effective and appropriate classes to partners.
With all that is happening the need for family support is greater than ever. Join us on our social media channels next Tuesday to find encouragement to be kind to yourself and others right now, as well as updates on how Illuminate Colorado is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Begin your day by being kind to yourself with Bloom Yoga at 7:00 am.
- Hear from Jade Woodard, Illuminate Colorado Executive Director and learn how our programs are being impacted by this COVID-19 pandemic and how we are responding to strengthen families right now.
- Hear from Melissa T. Merrick, PhD, President and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse America.
- Join us throughout the day on our social media channels to get ways you can inspire kindness during this stressful time.
- Donate to support Illuminate Colorado during these challenging times.
Daylight Saving Time ended last week, and it’s a tough transition for many of us. The days are shorter, it seems like it’s dark all the time, and our pets (and children, and our own stomachs) are begging for food at all hours of the day…
