One of her song hits, “Let The Rain,” a top 20 Billboard charting song, is the official theme song for the Brides Against Breast Cancer nationwide campaign that is currently underway. "From my perspective as a breast cancer warrior now undergoing chemotherapy, I believe that education and personal support are just as critical as prompt medical treatment," said Margo Rey. "It is my pleasure to join Brides Against Breast Cancer to raise awareness and help ensure that no one ever has to face cancer alone."

ABOUT COVENANT HOUSE:
Covenant House opened its doors in 2000 to provide shelter and services to Atlanta’s homeless and runaway youth. For over a decade, the organization has dedicated their services to helping young people suffering from homelessness, sexual exploitation, involved in drug-dealing, theft and other anti-social activities. More than 15,000 youth have received support from CHGA since 2000. Currently, more than 1300 homeless and at-risk youth are given support and help every year. The waiting list, at times, is dishearteningly long. Covenant House Georgia is a full partner of Covenant House International, the largest privately funded agency in the United States providing shelter and services to homeless and at-risk youth.
Covenant House Georgia is the only program of its kind in Georgia serving homeless kids every night between midnight and 8:00 AM. Five nights a week, our Outreach Van visits some of the most distressed neighborhoods of Atlanta, seeking out sexually exploited youth, drug dealers, and gang members in the hopes of saving a life. Since opening the Center on Broad Street in 2006, more than 10,000 young people have walked through the doors looking for assistance with shelter, food, clothing, education, and employment. Every day young men and women have come here in search of crisis counseling, employment, a GED diploma, or a safe place to sleep.
