Lindsay’s Caring Hearts

How You Can Help

For ten years our IMAGINE dinner has been successful because of our many supporters.  You enabled us to continue our dating violence trainings and school awareness projects, thus touching the lives of thousands throughout Rhode Island.  We will miss personally connecting with all of you this year as we transition to a mail campaign, Lindsay’s “Caring Hearts” Annual Appeal.

Our work supports the dating violence education mandated in grades 7-12 by Lindsay’s Law.   We continue to believe that had Lindsay been provided this vital education, she would still be with us today.   You have helped to keep Lindsay’s voice alive, as she speaks to teens through our trained teachers in the classrooms, our poster contests, Clothesline projects, book donations, website, and so much more.

  • This year one health teacher shared a letter his student had written to him which read “I just wanted to say thank you for all the dating violence topics we’ve learned throughout the 4 years. Your class helped me leave a very abusive relationship. Every warning sign we talked about was present. I finally ended the relationship. Without the education, I would have never noticed.” The teacher wanted us to know that this was due to the Lindsay Ann Burke Act and our teacher trainings. We know it also takes a well-trained, motivated teacher to bring that education to life within their classroom, and they, together with all of us, are making a difference.
  • Because of your generosity, this year, in addition to our trainings and school projects, we will donate one of our teacher training DVDs to every RI middle and high school library, teacher resource section. This will enable every school staff member to have access to the DVD and our online resources for their professional and personal use. Student-designed bookmarks will also be donated.
  • We look forward to seeing student-designed t-shirts from the Clothesline Projects we sponsored at 3 high schools displayed at Women & Infants, Butler, and Kent Hospitals this October as part of their awareness project.

These are just some of the accomplishments made possible through your continued support. We are very grateful to all of you and know that with your “Caring Hearts” donation you are truly making a difference in the lives of our youth and community. We are a 501-C-3 organization and because we have no paid staff, your entire donation supports our projects.   A heart-felt thank you to you, and we look forward to placing your name on our website’s “Caring Hearts” donor page!

Sincerely,

Chris & Ann Burke
