The path that started it all
and the inspiration
found along the way!
May we all see
the magic and wonder in our own lives
as we walk the paths!
Not only the animals but also the little people had heard whispers through their social network that there was someone coming who could see into other worlds. Was she the one?
A chance meeting recently with Jennifer Dillon truly inspired Shirley. Jennifer is the founder of Southern Arizona Book Heroes™ (SABH), an organization who along with first responders, gives comfort to our youngest and most vulnerable citizens.
SABH provides resources that help treat children’s unseen injuries—their emotional wounds. They equip first responders, victim advocates, social workers, and child-centric agencies with new books and toys, to distract, comfort, and soothe traumatized children.
As Jennifer says, "our aim is to support our first responders and believe this program
helps to build a partnership with our most important community members,
our kids. Our hope is that future generations of this community will be
comfortable interacting with emergency responders in every capacity."
"Shirley, donated books to our program not once but twice - almost 400 books!
Thank you so much for your kindness & for sharing your journeys in life through books."
