You should feel really good today.
Why? Because you put that beautiful smile on Jewelie’s face.
Hope Reins opened its gates this week for an 11th season to kids struggling with trauma. And, it’s only because of generous people like you.
Remember, families don’t pay a dime for the life-changing services you provide. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Jewelie’s mom thanks you, too.
The little girl grieves the loss of her dad.
‘We called her his appendage,” says Wendy, as she recalls how her six-foot, six-inch husband hauled Jewelie around. “They were inseparable.”
When he died suddenly from a reaction to medication, it crushed the family, especially 8-year-old Jewelie. But, sessions at Hope Reins are helping her process the deep grief.
And, it’s no surprise to anyone that Jewelie chose Tessa, the towering 2,000 pound Clydesdale as her horse. “She’s fearless around Tessa,” says Wendy. “Being with her session leader, Karen, and Tessa, tells her she’s not alone.”
Thank you for being a person who cares about others. And, I hope this story puts a smile on your face all weekend!
