Hidden magic behind A New Dawn
How It Came To Be
Seeing A Need
A New Dawn came about stemming from real life experiences when going through addiction recovery. Every day, there would be that one good Samaritan that would want to help out, but didn't know how. How do you ensure you are actually helping that person who is trying so hard to do better and make things right, when there is no clear way of making sure you are helping? That's A New Dawn.
After privately serving ourselves for 5 years, we decided the time was right to make it official as more and more people wanted to get involved. So, in 2017 we established A New Dawn.
A big driving force for the creation was that one of our own received a Secret Santa one year, when there was nothing to give to the family, and that sparked the idea to pay it forward. The next few years following, we did our own Secret Santa, just as us, to serve others in similar situations. Giving back to the women who are doing their best and working so hard, we wanted them to know they are doing well. It became such a big success, that the idea came back for A New Dawn. Bring more like minded people together to help those, we know are deserving, of help. This allowed us to expand our favorite project in to other projects and events to help continue to serve.
When our loved ones passed, from addiction, or the byproduct of addiction, enough was enough. It is time to step up, and create A New Dawn.
