SIMONEGORDONHappy New Year! We thank you for allof the donations and support during2021 and send gratitude for all that youdo to help others, when no other sourceof help is in sight. I remain committed toour mission -- now more than ever. The Black Fairy GodmotherFoundation's mission is to restore Blackand Brown families' stability byremoving the barriers that keep them inabject poverty and domestic violencesituations. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic,already-vulnerable families nowexperience even greater devastations,lost wages, total unemployment,sickness, and even the loss of their headsof household. In 2022, we needed to help others giventhat domestic violence has increased. Arecent report by the NationalThe Black FairyGodmotherFoundation Founder and CEO Commission on COVID-19 and CriminalJustice shows that domestic violenceincidents in the U.S. increased by 8.1%Also, poverty continues to impact allcommunities and particularly Black andBrown communities. During this PovertyAwareness Month (January), let us notestatistics from the Annie CaseyFoundation -- that poverty rates remaindisproportionately high for children ofcolor. Nationwide, Black (28%),American Indian (25%) and Latino (23%)kids are more likely to grow up poorwhen compared to their non-Hispanicwhite (10%) and Asian and PacificIslander (9%) peers.As you can see, we have much work todo in 2022 .
