Hi everyone! Our February Blog is different than past blogs in that it is all words from our mentors. Our mentors, do so much for Charisma’s Crayons and we greatly appreciate them! Our mentorship program is more than just mentoring, it is an opportunity to change a child’s life, learn more about yourself and learn more about society.

Catherine Sochar and her mentee, Chloe
My experience with the mentor program has given me a new perspective in life. We sometimes forget the little things, focus on the bad, and want more. But, working with my mentee has allowed me to see in life all you need is love. My experience with my mentee started off slow because I had a hard time getting in contact with her mom , but when I finally did I was able to hangout with her many times. So far we have spent our outings coloring, playing tag, going to the mall, and learning about each other. Recently I helped her family move in an apt, which was so awesome to see how happy they were! Life isn’t perfect but this family doesn’t give up, and they have so much love for each other that nothing else matters. God has answered my prayers by allowing me to meet this little girl. I really hope to maintain contact with this family for a while. Thanks Charisma’s!
