This guest blog is from Hilary Keane, Random Acts Events Manager, describing her experience at Salute to Supernatural in Chicago. Thanks Hilary!
Thank you so much to everyone who visited us at the Salute to Supernatural Chicago convention Oct 25 – 27 and made donations to Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC). We received a wide selection of items much needed by the women and children that the shelter helps. The shelter not only provides a place to stay but also provides counseling and a 24 hour hotline to give support to battered women and their children.
It was so wonderful to bear witness to your kindness and generosity. Some of you went out and bought items after talking to us, some donated their last few dollars with others bringing items from miles away. You are a truly inspiring group of people and it was a genuine pleasure to get to talk to so many of you over the duration of the weekend.
Thanks to you we were able to donate 15 boxes of supplies to CAWC as well as $1250 in cash donations. Please know that your donations mean the world both to Random Acts and the shelter.
So many of you stopped by to thank us for the work that we do. I would like to turn that around and thank YOU for all your support. Random Acts would not exist without you so thank you for helping with our mission to conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time.
