INTRODUCTION

The LOVE FORWARD FOUNDATION is a 501c3 PUBLIC CHARITY started by children whose parents are, or were, among the millions of the MASS INCARCERATED throughout the United States.  We're FRIENDS of the FOUNDATION who advocate necessity to STOP Stigmas, CREATE Change, and LOVE Forward. Over TWO-MILLION (2,000,000) CHILDREN experience adversities like STIGMA and TRAUMA due to PARENTAL INCARCERATION and are in need of HEALING. RESEARCH supports this theory, predicting an increase in numbers, in the years to come, for the rate of incarceration, and the percentage of the incarcerated having children. 

THE "POWER of PENMANSHIP" INITIATIVE
Love Forward donates care packages to children, providing enough materials to write, at least once a month, to a mother or father, for a year.  Inventory is dangerously low, yet, sign-ups have increased as more families are made aware of the program. Love Forward solely relies on the generosity of Freinds of the Foundation. Year-round, incarcerated parents send in requests, and every one of their children receives a FREE gift containing:
Paper • Pencils • Envelopes • Stamps • Holiday/BDay Cards
Please join
us in supporting this one-of-a-kind initiative!  CLICK NOW to make a DONATION! Help for a child is just a click away!

MISSION STATEMENT 
The Vision of Love Forward Foundation is to introduce children to an outlet for self-expression, creativity, and healing, through the use of creative written expression and communication, while raising awareness for child and adolescent trauma due to PARENTAL INCARCERATION.

IMPACTING

First introduced in 2016, the "Power of Penmanship" initiative encourages children to "unplug" from technology, in order to utilize time, to correspond with an incarcerated parent. Backed by empowerment, dedication, and action, this program is one of the many ongoing charitable purposes of the Love Forward Foundation. 

ALL SERVICES ARE FREE!  
In addition to supplies, Love Forward connects CARETAKERS to community resources, in an effort to detect and prevent the early adverse effects of incarceration.  We take pride in knowing the commitment they've made to serve our community.  100% of proceeds from this campaign will fund the "Power of Penmanship" program, covering the care package inventory, and shipping expenses.  
Tax-Deductable* DONATIONS are welcome anytime at: 
Love Forward Foundation, P.O. Box 1599, Spotsylvania, VA  22553-1599.
