“How can we be useful? How is this going to impact the children’s lives?” asked the Days family, who decided to support specific needs for an aftercare mission at the last year’s Salt Lake City O.U.R. Gala. Their intentional questions set them up for a very impactful aftercare trip to South America this past March. This is not the first time the Days have significantly contributed to O.U.R.; they have donated a van to one of our partnering aftercare homes, along with other monetary donations that have greatly blessed our mission.
Elizabeth Frazier, founder of Hero Bands, also accompanied them on the trip. Elizabeth makes leather bands with different words of hope and healing stamped on a metal plate on each bracelet. She donates $2 from each sale to O.U.R. There is also an option for customers to buy bands for survivors in aftercare with the word “Safe”.
The girls even had an opportunity to make their own bands thanks to Elizabeth!
The Days’ spirits were also full of love and kindness on this trip. While they were there, Mike Day repaired a clothes line. Although this does not seem like a big task, it meant the world to each survivor and staff member. This home is specifically for teenagers and babies, who cycle through a lot of laundry every week. It was piling up and they didn’t have an efficient way to dry their clothes.
The Days and Elizabeth also completed many painting projects for the aftercare home. They were very creative with logistics and using their resources. The end results were beautiful!
We are so grateful for the Days Family and Elizabeth Frazier for coming to this South American aftercare home with love and service. They contributed to our team unity on the trip, and they made a big impact on the survivors in the aftercare home through their generous service.
