THANK YOU so much for all of you who have worked hard to volunteer this season! We are excited to announce that we will be unvailing the design for the Lantern Of Hope sometime soon so keep your heads up and eyes open! Thanks to our wonderful architectural designer (name to be announced soon) who is burning the midnight oil to come up with a design that we know you will love!
Several of our members have already sent out their care cards and we are grateful that they have put in a tremendous amount of work in designing, collecting and distributing their cards to our participating shelters! Good job!
If you have not already done so, please be sure to post how many care cards you have already sent to the shelters on our list. (www.dvmemorial.com). Please include some words of encouragement to the many women and children who are currently in transition away from domestic violence.

Prayers Needed
On Monday, my friend Cherry Simpson’s niece Lacey was murdered. Please join me in prayer (for those who do believe) to pray for her family and for Cherry. Even though I did not know Lacey personally, my heart has been filled with so much sorrow as another beautiful life was tragically cut short due to domestic violence. If you have a moment would you please read Cherry’s blog and post words of support. – Nasrin
