Share Your Spark,
Light the Tree

During periods of unfavorable weather, the tree is kept off to ensure everyone's safety in the vicinity. Thank you for your understanding!

For those of us who have lived through childhood adversity, the holiday season can be especially rough. The warm, fuzzy feelings that everyone seems to be having can seem foreign when we’ve been wounded in the past, and the heaviness we feel can seem in stark contrast to the merriment all around us.

Step 1

Take a moment to acknowledge your story

Take a moment to acknowledge your story. Our childhood experiences have an emotional, physical, and even cellular impact on how we think, how we act, and how we feel. There’s a reason the holidays are hard for you, and it’s O.K. for you to feel the way you do. Whatever your story, take a moment to acknowledge whatever you’re feeling.

Step 2

Light the tree

Light the tree. You may not feel it, but you’re resilient. You’re courageous. And your perseverance has led you here. Flip the switch to light the tree and join thousands of others shining light on their story.
