ICARE IS AN ORGANIZATION CREATED BY RACHEL AND IS
SET UP FOR THE PURPOSE OF HELPING OTHER PEOPLE.
I created iCare so I could focus on helping other people. Life flies by and I wanted to make this a part of my life and not just words or something that I’d do in the future. Some of the organizations we work for with iCare are:
Kids in The Spotlight - Kids in the Spotlight, Inc. (KITS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in May 2009. The program trains youth in foster care programs and other underserved youth to create, write, cast and star in their own short films. This training culminates in an annual film festival competition where they present awards and recognition. Kids in the Spotlight allows kids to express themselves through the art of filmmaking and encourages interest in careers in the movie industry.
I attended the November 2011 Kids in The Spotlight awards and opened the envelope and said.... "and the winner is"..... as I presented the award for the Best Supporting Actor. It was amazing to see the impact that Kids in The Spotlight has on these children. One young man shared his story and explained that KITS changed his life, that even though he was in a foster care home for a few years, KITS gave him hope and focus and he is now in college with the help and love from the people at KITS.

Children Mending Hearts-–Children Mending Hearts (CMH) is dedicated to empowering disadvantaged youth through educational and arts programs that build empathy and global citizenry. CMH's goal is to directly engage the youth of America in global children's causes where they can positively impact the life of another child and ultimately realize their potential to effect change both in their own community and around the world. Founded in 2008 by Lysa Heslov, the purpose of Children Mending Hearts is to give children worldwide the power to find and use their voices through creative expression. CMH conducts workshops in the arts in America with local homeless children's organizations, and internationally with NGO's supporting children in conflict zones. www.childrenmendinghearts.org.
