I’m writing to express my support of Rolanda and her “It’s Your Birthday” program. I work at a transitional housing for women and children escaping domestic violence. These families have lost everything in their escape. The children may have witnessed traumatic events and have been uprooted from their homes and are now living in poverty.
Rolanda comes once a month to spread joy and a feeling of being special to the children at our shelter. They look forward to her visits eagerly. She decorates our dining hall and brings treats and gifts for all the kids. It is an hour filled with laughter and twinkling eyes of children of all ages. She does a wonderful job making the day special and helping the kids forget their troubles. Her warmth and generosity are felt by everyone.
Her program “It’s Your Birthday” is one of the nicest I have seen and is definitely noteworthy.
