Venture: Love Shouldn’t Hurt
In an aim to provide individual therapy sessions to kids in middle school who have been affected by domestic violence I am selling portable chargers to raise funds. I am donating the proceeds to an organization called Project Pave, which sends therapists to various middle schools across Colorado. By doing this, I hope to break the financial barrier between children and necessary therapy.
