Showing kids they're special can change their lives

Please help fund this creative project and keep Cura's kids healthy, learning and thriving!

Cura: #TheEveryKidIsSpecialProject A Project of Creative Visions Fiscal Sponsorship

My mom was adopted and grew up in Kenya after losing her parents in WWII. For her 65th birthday I joined her on an epic return to her East African childhood. On our last day we visited Cura, a home for kids who have lost their parents to AIDS. We were welcomed by little open arms and big beaming smiles; we ate birthday cake, played soccer, read books, laughed, and were humbled by the bright, loving spirits of the kids, despite the awful tragedies they have endured.

I've thought a lot about Cura since our visit.
About the trauma all too many children have to live through.
Cura's kids are living proof that love lessens fear and pain.
And, that showing kids they're special has the power to change their lives.

This January, I'm going back to Cura to team up with the kids and launch a campaign inspired by them: The Every Kid is Special Project. It's a mission to let kids everywhere know they're special, lovable, and loved -- that will later become a book and social media campaign.

Please help me help the Cura kids by donating whatever you can. Contributions will help fund our creative vision and keep Cura's kids healthy, learning, thriving, and yes knowing, they're each shining stars.

Look out for our book and Instagram campaign later next year!

Asante,

Sharon
