2016 Holiday Campaign
Due to the generosity of our supporters, SHE Network is fortunate to be able to provide holiday assistance and cheer to our active clients this year. We would also like to update you on a former client, who has recently experienced a tragedy and could benefit from our support more than ever.
Many of you may remember Mariessa, a single mother who had been raising her two children, one of whom was significantly impacted by Cerebral Palsy. Mariessa had reached out to SHE Network for support, resources and help fundraising in order to purchase an adapted van for her son Georgie. It was essential to her to provide Georgie with a full life rich with experiences and he had gotten too big at that point for her to manage with a standard car. Through her commitment and hard work she was in fact able to purchase that van. Sadly, Georgie passed away unexpectedly on October 9th this year. A terrible blow for Mariessa and her 7 year old daughter.
At this point there are many practical issues that need to be addressed. Many of which are financial in nature. Everything from funeral expenses to moving to a smaller apartment. As you can imagine it is all quite overwhelming as Mariessa and her daughter attempt to move forward in a positive way.
In addition, SHE Network would like to send Mariessa and her daughter on a getaway to help them cope with the loss they have suffered and to bring some joy to them for the holidays.
If you'd like to help support Mariessa with this difficult transition, and enable
to continue our work assisting women in our community throughout the year, please donate here or send a check to SHE Network at the address below.
