    I to make a challenge. This is to all of the friends of Kasem Cares Foundation, who make and sell Homemade items like Soap’s, Salsa’s, Jelly’s, Candles or who grow Vegetables and sell them at your local Farmer’s Market, or from your Website or if you have a small business that you sell your Homemade or Home Grown products from your home.


    I Challenge you to donate a percentage of each jar of your canned goodies you make, each bar of soap, each candle, all vegetables/fruits you sell or if you make and sell pieces of art at your local Farmer’s Market, please donate a percentage to Kasem Cares Foundation.


    Farmer’s Markets are becoming more and more popular. I am donating 50 Cents from each Pint of my Homemade Pickles I sell at my local Farmer’s Market and from Facebook orders and customer’s I have made throughout the years. I know that doesn’t seem like very much, but if all of us who are ‘Crafty’ and make money from selling our arts and goods, banded together, we could all make a difference.


    Kasem Cares Foundation is an AMAZING team who is making a HUGE presence and a change in our Country, State by State for our Elders and Disabled who are being Abused. They are fighting for us at the State/National level and they are WINNING!!! BUT, it takes money for them to fly across the country and to stay in Hotels for endless nights away from their loved ones. And believe me when I tell you, they don’t choose the most extravagant Hotels and live off of Room Service. These ladies and a couple of gentlemen have been using their own money to pay for the Hotels and Airplane tickets. I have been there when there are three different people calling three of the lowest priced Airline ticket finder companies trying to get people back home. Tickets aren’t bought in advance because they never know when a Bill will pass. It could take a week, or it could take a day like it did in Arkansas. They can’t order their return flights ahead of time. The places like Priceline and Cheap Seats don’t give refunds if you need to change your return airplane ticket. So they wait to get a return ticket. They deal with a lot of unseen red tags on their trips to get Bills passed for our friends and families.


    Please, let’s get all Artesians and HomeGoods Crafters who make a living selling your art/goods, to donate a percentage to this AMAZING Foundation! Thanks So Much. Kelli Mims

    Volunteer

    Every organization needs volunteers. Friends of Kasem Cares has so much work to do as awareness of elder abuse and neglect issues remains frightfully scarce. Any and all volunteer efforts will be welcome and appreciated. Will you help?

  • signed Take The Pledge 2016-05-18 08:15:52 -0700
    Thank you so much for passing your Bill in LOUISIANA!!! LOUISIANA LOVES YOU!!!

    Take The Pledge

    2,393 pledges

    Stop the Silence. Promote Awareness. Raise your Voice.

    • 1 to 2 million Americans age 65+ report having been abused by a loved one or someone they depend on for care.
    • Only 1 in 14 incidents of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities.
    • Only 1 in 25 cases of financial exploitation are ever reported, meaning there may be at least 5 million financial abuse victims each year.

    You can do your part to end the silent epidemic of elder abuse by taking the pledge to stand up against elder abuse. There are 10,000 people who are turning 65 each and every day (Pew Research Center), and we are rapidly approaching a time where nearly 50% of the population will be 65 or older. Together, we can end the silence of elder abuse by standing united and raising our voices against this growing problem. 

    Show your support in this movement, by pledging to end the silence, raising awareness in your community, and speaking up against elder abuse.
