Located in Pflugerville, Texas, Hearts of Purpose is a nonprofit that provides journals to Central TX emergency shelters and hospitals that serve children who are dealing with illnesses, neglect, or abuse. The individuals can experience the healing power of the written word. Some of the best gifts that I have ever been given are journals. My older cousin and mentor gifted me a gorgeous journal with a wood cover that he acquired in Russia when I left home for the first time to strike out on my own. My friend Ellen in Abu Dhabi gave me a gorgeous gold cloth covered journal that I use to keep track of books that I have read. I was really inspired by this project and mailed a dozen journal.
If you would like to join me in the project, at this time they are not accepting monetary donations. But they do need journals. You can mail the journals to:
