Greg and Cheri Hecht and the team at Hecht Walker, P.C. are happy to announce our first Annual Giving Challenge with a Matching Grant of $10,000 to Children’s Rights, Inc. a non-profit organization. Greg, Cheri, and Hecht Walker, P.C. will match every dollar donated to Children’s Rights, Inc. up to $10,000 between now and #GivingTuesday on November 28th.
Children’s Rights is setting up a Southeastern Headquarters in Atlanta to protect children from abuse and neglect through advocacy and legal work. All of us believe in making this country a place where all children – especially the most vulnerable among them – are safe and healthy. Children’s Rights, Inc. has helped protect over 100,000 children from abuse and neglect through its legal work. Children’s Rights enforces the Constitutional, State and Federal Rights of children, to be free from abuse and neglect, in state custody or supervision. Your contributions will go toward this work to protect Children in Georgia and throughout the South. We need your help to make this Southeastern office a vibrant center of protection for children in foster care and other state and federal oversight programs.
Many of you joined us a couple of weeks ago in Atlanta for a Conversation with Children’s Rights to hear the both horrible and heartwarming story of Edgar C. Edgar survived five years in a group home to make it out on a scholarship to Syracuse University. His younger brother was separated from him in the system and was traumatized through 40 different foster care placements and not surprisingly is now in prison. Unfortunately, less than 40% of children in foster care graduate high school, and the majority, suffer severe trauma and stress in the system.
Cheri and I are blessed to have adopted twin girls who started their lives in foster care, and we are so impressed with the compassion, commitment and great legal work of Children’s Rights to protect vulnerable children. Children’s Rights helps children in Atlanta, the Southeast and across the nation. We invite you to join us in supporting the organization’s efforts in our region as we strive to transform the child welfare systems that care for America’s children. To double your donation, type or copy and paste “Matched by Hecht Walker” in the donation comments section as you make your donation.
All contributions made will allow CR to expand its work in the Southeast region.
Then, to help us spread the word, post and share that you have made a donation:
Thank you and God bless you and your family. We are grateful for your teamwork and contribution to this important cause.
