Today at our staff at the Daily Grind, there was this great wagon stuffed with WSU items to raffle off to benefit the Willow Center for Grieving Children. It was appropriately titled "Wave the Flag - Go Cougs" as it was stuffed with Cougar items sponsored by the Bookie and the Holiday Inn Express. The wagon is valued at $500.00 and tickets are a $5 or 5 for $20. What a great valued!
I was also most interested in Willow Center for Greiving Children and have placed a call into see what I can personally do to help. It is a program to help children who are going through difficult emotional difficulties, including the loss of a parent. According to their brochure, they have a camp as well which is an annual weekend overnight camp for kids ages 6-17.
They also provide a safe place for youngsters going through such a tragedy to learn coping skills, get support, and understand the grieving process.
I personally feel drawn to such a great cause on a personal note as I lost my mother early in life at the age of 15, and understand how difficult it is....and so happy to do what I can to support this great cause! You can also find them on facebook!
