CASA fundraiser/signs for Olivia Jansen
On July 10, 2020, Olivia Jansen tragically passed away at the age of 3 as a result of child abuse right here in the KC Metro – such a sweet, little soul suffered unimaginably, and needlessly. To help transform Olivia’s story for good, Olivia’s Angels KC is selling yard signs to help spread the love for Olivia to abused and neglected kids in the metro by donating all profits and donations from sign sales to KC Metro Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Signs are $20-$25 each or any two for $40. Card preferred, cash accepted. All profits and donations will go to KC metro CASA in Olivia’s name on her 4th birthday, Dec 22, 2020.
CASA volunteers are THE VOICE for high-risk children in foster care. They go to every court date with their assigned child and advocate in the child’s best interest. The voice and opinion of a CASA volunteer weigh heavily with the court judge as to whether or not a child should be allowed back into the custody of a guardian when to time comes for unification. The role of a CASA volunteer is a huge responsibility and the training they receive is invaluable.
It takes about $1,000 per CASA volunteer each year to train and give them the materials they need to do their super important work. Olivia’s Angels KC would like to be able to sponsor at least three advocate-kid pairs for Olivia.
If you’re not into a sign, but want to support the donation in Olivia’s name, all donations, large and small are accepted with great gratitude. You can donate online at oliviasangelskc.org.
The next sign sale and pickup at St.Agnes is Saturday, October 10th from 8 am-2 pm. For other sale and pickup dates, please visit oliviasangelskc.org. For more information, or to arrange a different pick up date, email Erica at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text (913) 914-1129.
