Special Retreat Helps Burn Victims Regain Confidence
Over the past few days, we have all heard about a special little girl who lost her family to a house fire in 2013. Safyre, age 5, is asking people from around the world to send her a Christmas card. We here at HooplaHa did, and hope you do too! (Get her address here.)
Safyre's brave story reminds us of Angel Wings, a foundation we discovered that helps burn victims. Angel Wings is a retreat that deals specifically with the burden of living with visible wounds. Having carried the weight of disfigurement for most of their lives, these teenage girls struggled to cope with society's reactions to their scars. By surrounding the girls with peers who can relate to this particular obstacle, they learn that real beauty lies on the other side of their skin. For more information, visit Angel Faces!
