'Tis the Season for Giving Back
Earlier this month, the A2 Events team had the honor of volunteering and working to support one of its favorite charities, Every Mother's Advocate (ĒMA). ĒMA is a mother advocacy movement focused on eradicating the preventable causes of family separation. The organization believes when a mom in crisis is connected to advocacy and support, she is empowered to keep her family together. As such, ĒMA's mission is to equip communities to eradicate the preventable causes of family separation through mother advocacy.
During the holidays it is especially important to keep families together to share in the love and merriment of the holiday season. This year, A2 assisted ĒMA with its holiday event by decorating their space and creating a more magical setting for the event. A2 also created a Santa’s workshop inspired craft area for the kids while their moms shopped and it donated toys for the moms to choose from.
Finally, in lieu of a traditional holiday thank you gift to its clients, this year A2 made a charitable donation to ĒMA in honor of each of its clients. The A2 Events team absolutely loves being able to give back in such a tangible way and the opportunity to share its talent and treasures with others during the holidays!
Did you know: poverty is the leading cause of family separation in the United States? Every hour, 40 children are entered into the foster care system due to poverty and 76% of all removals are due to unmet basic needs in the home.
Happy New Year!
