No child should have to die due to abuse or neglect, especially if there is a safe haven for children while their families seek much needed support and counseling.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 17, 2010
New Life Christian Center, San Antonio, Texas has partnered with EKTIMIS in an innovative fundraiser program designed to support New Beginnings Children's Home - a new facility built to serve as a transitional home for abused and neglected children in Bexar County (San Antonio and surrounding communities). The fundraiser program is designed around the new EKTIMIS Custom Edition artifact program featuring specially commissioned artistic works that depict hope, innocence of children, as well as a healthy family life. The artistic works are created and portrayed around a central theme of respect - the hallmark of the EKTIMIS brand.
According to a 2009 Texas Department of Family and Protective Services report, the child population in Bexar County was estimated at 421,591. Of these children, about 5,727 were confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect. Thirteen of these cases involved fatalities. A spokesperson for New Life Christian Center is quoted as saying, "No child should have to die due to abuse or neglect, especially if there is a safe haven for children while their families seek much needed support and counseling."
New Beginnings Children's Home, a transitional facility located at the new Canaan Land Ranch, is the result of a long term vision of Dr. LaSalle R. Vaughn, Pastor and founder of New Life Christian Center, San Antonio, Texas. The modern and home-like facility has received a license to operate from the state of Texas. It is expected to begin serving abused and neglected children in the coming weeks.
The EKTIMIS brand is the creation of Niyi Taiwo, author of the EKTIMIS Top Ten Laws of Respect literary principles, and author of the Top Ten Laws of Respect book series. He states, "EKTIMIS is honored to support New Life Christian Center and New Beginnings Children’s Home. It is easy for us at EKTIMIS to support such a worthy cause, especially one that protects and cares for children – the future of any society."
The new collection of custom artifacts is currently available at EKTIMIS.com. The collection is expected to grow and to incorporate additional themes anchored around faith, family, fellowship and respect.
