THE BRAVEHEART FOUNDATION
I’d like to tell you about The Brave Heart Foundation.
I’ve seen this happen for years. Kids walking by my front door and curiously looking in and wanting to join so bad, but means inside the family didn’t allow the opportunity to do so. Or, that bullied kid desperately seeking immediate help, but comes from a single parent household or a home that doesn’t provide for such need. Or, a troubled teen with no guidance, that needs help, but can’t pay for his or her proper gear or attire and lessons to train and possibly change their path in life.
