Endless Summer - Kits for Charity

Every kit that they work on at Songbird Avenue is special, and this kit is no exception. This month they are happy to present "Endless Summer". Created with love by Dani Mogstad, Meredith Fenwick, Jan Crowley and Janet Phillips. Funds raised (minus PayPal fees) from this kit will be donated to S.A.F.E. House.

From the S.A.F.E. House website:
“S.A.F.E. House, with a capacity of 85 people, is the largest shelter for adult and child survivors of intimate partner violence in New Mexico and one of the five largest in the United States.

Our mission is: To shelter and empower survivors of intimate partner domestic violence and to improve the way New Mexico responds to this violence.
Our vision is: To live in a community that is free from all forms of oppression and violence.

Each year we will shelter, clothe and provide services to 1,000 survivors of violence. The majority of our residents are children under the age of twelve. It is a sad, but not unusual, experience for our shelter to be the first home for newborn babies.

Each year we will prepare 35,000 meals. We offer an on-site no-cost laundry, provide transportation, assist with protection orders and court accompaniment, help women connect with housing, employment, educational and mental and physical health services.

We offer individual and group education and treatment services for our residents as well as parenting support groups, children's wellness groups and recreational activities both on site and, when safe to do so, in the community.

Our transitional housing program, Pathways, provides intensive case management and rent support for up to two years to 37 families each year to help them gain the skills to allow them to obtain permanent, violence free housing and become productive, contributing members of our community.”

Included in this kit are: 12 patterned papers, 8 coordinating solid papers, 4 bottle caps, 1 blank stamp, 4 chipboard circle accents, 1 chipboard frame, 2 chipboard word art "summer", "vacation", 1 destination stamp, 1 endless summer stamp, 1 pair felt flip flops, 1 felt grass accent, 1 felt wave accent, 1 felt sun accent with buttons, 1 orange flower, 1 yellow flower, 1 red flower, 1 clear tab alpha A-Z upper case, and 1 12x12 inch psd layout template by Janet Phillips. This kit is approximately 114 MB and is two individual downloads.
