About this chapter
Jamie and Loretha, with the encouraging support of Kathie Briggs, grandmother of Kelsey and Founder of Kelsey’s Purpose, have joined Hugs in an effort to comfort children of child abuse. Their cause is our cause and we are delighted to encourage all of you to become aware of their program of legal support, legislation and an understanding of the trauma that creates child abuse through their web site.
The organization, Kelsey’s Purpose, is joining Hugs Across America in our joint effort to provide comfort to young victims of abuse through the hugs of teddy bears and messages of hope.
