Thank you Steven! We all know you have a fabulous voice and now you have shared your heart.
“In February of 2019, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler celebrated a momentous occasion when he cut the “scarf” to Janie’s House – a home for women and girls who have been abused or neglected.”
“With the $500,000 that Tyler, 70, donated, the Youth Villages organization was able to renovate a Memphis-area home for the cause. Youth Villages is a national foundation that assists children and helps them cope with mental, behavioral, and emotional problems.”
Abuse and neglect at a young age can have lifelong, devastating consequences for its survivors, according to Child Welfare.
Sometimes the effects of abuse can range from low self-esteem and depression to feelings of isolation, inability to trust others, and difficulties with relationships. Another staggering statistic is the fact that one in four girls will be sexually abused before they reach the age of 18.
Janie’s Fund was created to help bring awareness to this issue and to help provide financial support to “ensure that girls receive the most effective services available to help them overcome the trauma and pain of abuse,” the foundation’s website says.
Thank you Shareably Media Network for this incredibly uplifting story and support.
