Today’s Give Back Tuesday segment was very touching, fun and eye-opening.
I was blown away by the strength these women possess.
Emma, Stephanie and Jordan were kind enough to come in and share their stories and talk about their nonprofit, Rob’s Kids.
Rob’s Kids is an organization that is committed to making a difference in the lives of children who struggle with Depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. They provide funding and sponsorship to psychiatric professionals, along with resources and education to families, with the goal of providing a safe place, where kids can find a home away from home.
Emma’s older sister, Sam, was the inspiration behind Rob’s Kids. Sam became ill after her Dad, Rob, died by suicide. She was later diagnosed with Depression and PTSD. She spent time in Cincinnati Children’s Hospital which is where she received treatment that turned her life around. Sam discovered that there are children that are worse off than her. She was determined to get better so that she could help other kids like her.
