"What he sees is my smile every morning. That was not always the case. He once saw me hurt, bruised, ashamed, angry, and hiding because of abuse. But now - he sees his momma with smiles, love and hope. Why? Because you gave to Towels for Tears and they gave us the things we needed to start a new life once we left the shelter. Thank you for giving!"
Cara's story is why we do what we do.
Towels for Tears steps in within 24-48 hours BEFORE a person leaves a shelter to provide our Hope & Home Kit.
When you choose to give, you are one of the reasons Cara can smile. There are more women like Cara ready to leave shelters. Will you help us provide Hope & Home Kits to them as well? Click the DONATE button above and give generously.
