Granting Christmas Wishes to Angel Babies
Holidays of Hope is our way of spreading love and cheer for children who have been devastated by domestic violence through surprise gift-giving.
In 2014, Break the Silence against Domestic Violence launched our Holidays of Hope gift drive where we bless a select group of recipients each year with grocery gift cards, toys for children, and warm coats for the winter. The inception of this program stems from the heart of the Founder of BTS, Kristen Paruginog, and her long-standing history of community service.
To date, we have shared hope with over 200 families and individuals across the country who have been displaced from their homes caused by financial hardship, domestic violence, or substance abuse. It is through this program that we hope to instill the message of love and support during the holiday season.
As you can imagine, the holiday season isn’t always glorious and memorable. At times, it could magnify the sense of mourning especially for children living without their loved ones. BTS wants to make Christmas a bright one for children devastated by domestic violence.
