Real Talk Louanna, team up with The Beatlocker show, CRE818, Bravo Tip or pay, Real Talk Enterprise, Arizona Informant and others to present the 4th annual Christmas Party that gives back to children in foster care that have been victimized through sex trafficking and sexual trauma .
Louanna Faine, radio and television personality, knows the feeling of being forgotten during the Christmas season all too well. Neglected by her birth parents, she was placed in the foster care system as a child where she continued to suffer abuse at a young age. Louanna has vowed to use her experience to make effective strides and change the lives of other children’s who are living in the system. Louanna has partnered with Shanna Parker of Angels Go to Work (Tax Id will be given upon donation being received) a local non-profit organization who’s focus is Youth Human Trafficking. Both Shanna and Louanna are survivors of child sex trafficking and lived in the foster care system. Shanna has taken the negative life given to her and turned it into a positive advocacy for youth in Arizona; providing life skills classes and awareness in group homes in the valley.
When: December 17th
Who: 100 Group Home Kids (50 girls and 50 boys ranging from 10-18 years of age)
Where: Co-Hoots (Address will be provided to approved guests)
This Christmas Party will focus on four different areas, Education, Inspiration, Community Empowerment and Real Life Skills. Children from 10-18 years of age will be divided into 4 different groups and rotated through the different activities.
The four groups are:
Tree Decorating Contest
Empower Speakers (including community members, celebrities, and Foster Care Alumni)
Our goal is to raise over 500 gifts so each child can walk away with 5 gifts. There will be several giveaways throughout the celebration.
Louanna and Shanna know what it’s like to be a forgotten child without parents at Christmas time. They can and will tell you it matters! They have teamed up to be Real Angels to make a difference and create memories for a lifetime. Children living in foster care and group homes have a tough time all year long. Help us give them one day where they can believe,
“SOMEONE REALLY CARED ABOUT ME!”
