CSJ's 3rd birthday and Lend a Hand campaign launch!

CSJ_Global_Family_hands.jpgThree years ago Counsel to Secure Justice was born in Delhi, India. It’s been an incredible journey filled with ups and downs, great joy and deep sadness. Truthfully, I’ve felt overwhelmed at times. But the more I reflect, I gain a greater appreciation for people like you who have made this a beautiful journey.

During the last three years, we’ve provided legal and psychosocial support to more than 85 children.  On average, our clients are 10.7 years old.  We have clients as young as one year old. While their stories are disturbing, there is hope…we bring hope. 

My greatest learning about what we do is simple: we are a light to the most vulnerable during very dark times.  We find ourselves in a sacred position.  At the moment where a child is physically and emotionally beaten down. When she is lonely and filled with shame and guilt.  After she has been doubted, demeaned, blamed and rejected, sometimes by her own family.  We are there for her.

To commemorate CSJ's birthday and honour the work of our staff, we launch the second annual Lend a Hand campaign.


2015 Lend a Hand Campaign

Campaign goals: raise 6.5 lakh ($10,000) and reach 700 likes on CSJ's Facebook page.

During the campaign you’ll hear from the CSJ team. They’ll share stories about how the work has impacted them and the beauty they’ve seen in the midst of pain.  

I’ll share the insights by email, in the CSJ website blog and on Facebook.  Take time to read them. Share them with your friends, because they’re stories that need to be shared.

So as we start the campaign, I ask three things: 

1) Donate or pledge to CSJ. Commit to giving a one time or recurring monthly donation so we can continue bringing light to children and their families in times of greatest darkness. 

2) Share about the campaign.  Like our Facebook page and share the posts.  Encourage your friends and family to give.  I’ve drafted an email that you can send along to your friends.  Email me and I'll send it to you. 

3) Encourage our staff.  As staff share their stories, encourage them with comments under the Facebook or blog posts.

Because when you lend a hand, together we are stronger.
