* We feel the children look up to entertainers, artists, and consider them as role models and offer inspiration in positive aspects.

 *We feel the children and the innocent need something to look forward; to when their lives have been so tragic, and we wish to offer them opportunity, and therapeutic light on this day of blessing to shine that light in their eyes and offer hope to change their life.
