A campaign for foster care

Starting on May 4th Carolina Closing Gifts is launching a 2-week campaign to raise funds for a non-profit here in Charlotte.

“It takes a village to raise a child…”
Last year, during this campaign, we raised nearly $9,000 to put toward an education fund for our foster son at the time, K. We were blown away by the generosity of our friends, family and our clients. May is National Foster Care Month, and as many of you know, we fostered for 2 years just after having our first biological child. As foster parents, we learned of a non-profit that launched a few years ago called Foster Village Charlotte. Their goal is to provide resources, classes, support groups, social events and much-needed supplies to assist foster families – to be part of the village that it takes to raise a child.

An Essential Business

Nearly half of foster families quit within their first year. This isn’t due to extreme circumstances or because the child was bad. This happens largely because of a lack of support that these families have in their community and city. After all, they signed up for it – why should others help when things get hard? Enter Foster Village. Men and women from around our city are ready step in, no matter the hour, because they know how essential – and few – foster families are, especially in a city like Charlotte where the children in care far exceed the available homes.

Foster Village runs on donations, and this is where you come in. 10% of all sales during this campaign will go directly to Foster Village. During this campaign, part of the money you would already be spending on gifts will go toward providing supplies, paying licensed counselors for therapeutic support, and creating a community for these families to connect with each other.

This is the prime time to place your first ever Cutco order, or stock up on your gifts if you’re running low. It’s also a perfect opportunity to finally get Cutco for you home or complete that block!
