Ashley Brockette is the Communications Director for Child Advocates, here to tell us about one of their major fundraisers: the 30th Annual McDonald’s Houston Children’s Festival Saturday and Sunday March 30 & 31, The festival is closing down 16 blocks of Downtown Houston for the biggest Children's Festival in the country. It all benefits Child Advocates and thus far, this festival has raised over 5.5 Million Dollars. It's a Houston-made success and it serves the Advocates –volunteers – who accompany children through our court system. These children have been removed from their homes by Child Protective Services and their Advocates is often the only person on their side for the whole case. The Org trains Advocates and helps them help the children. Their system is extremely successful but they are in dire need of volunteers.www.childadvocates.orgDonating is a legitimate way to help when one cannot commit to being an advocate.
