Trauma Recovery/HAP Newsletter
December 2015

The holidays have arrived!  We want to wish you happy and healthy holidays from all of us at Trauma Recovery, EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs!  We would also like to thank all of those who have already given or plan to give to our 2015 Annual Appeal.  As many of you may already know, this year, all holiday donations are designated to our Disaster Recovery Fund, which provides essential resources to our volunteers in their preparation and recovery efforts from man-made and natural disasters.

The simple fact is:  Together we can do extraordinary things.  We can bring healing through EMDR therapy when the community needs it most.  Work has continued in the occupied territories and the West Bank with Janet Wright.  We are approaching the launch of our project in Nepal.  There is also development of efforts for San Bernardino in progress.  This is all funded solely by donations.  These projects cannot continue or come to fruition without them.  The Disaster Recovery Fund will allow us to be prepared financially when a tragedy or disaster happens. 

Please consider giving the gift of healing this holiday season.  Check out our new and improved donation page here.  In the New Year we will also be giving everyone the opportunity to fund raise on our behalf with just a click of a button.  We have such a wonderful community and this will allow us to share it with those who are not yet involved in it.  Thank you for all you do.  Happy holidays!
