I believe children are magical, spirited, full of promise and can be encouraged and challenged to fulfill their dreams,” Jaclyn says. “I learned as a child, that people with a big heart and a little time could make a big difference in my life. The goal of developing CHARM is to reach out to many others with even bigger dreams, because dreams do come true as they have for me.”Jaclyn’s charity will partner with other foundations to support children and their families by providing resources to overcome many of life’s obstacles caused by neglect, abuse, lack of education, and other hardships at home.Jaclyn has also tagged on to CHARM her motto, “I AM STRENGTH” as her personal reminder of hope and encouragement to adults going through tough times. Jaclyn learned to persevere and search within herself for a beam of strength to face her own challenges. I AM STRENGTH offers a community of support and a sounding board for adults and families of all backgrounds.“Children need safe environments, healthy guardians and happy homes to thrive. The vision of ‘I AM STRENGTH’ will target needs because parents, families and children speak a universal language,” she says. “With access to the proper resources and support, folks can better handle issues while developing a purpose for creating the healthy, positive home life that every child deserves.”In the spirit of hope and fun, Jaclyn invites all fans to join her I AM STRENGTH mission with a photograph (selfie) of themselves and the words I AM STRENGTH written on their hand or any favorite part of their body. Jaclyn will share your creative photos on social media with the hashtag #I AM STRENGTH. Selfie supporters will have the opportunity to be featured on the CHARM website. With enough support from local communities and the public, Jaclyn hopes to ensure that every unsupported child in this country will one day be properly nurtured and cared for.Please support CHARM’s mission with your donation or with the purchase of the beautifully designed Masonharlie, ‘I AM STRENGTH’ ID bracelet.
