The Charity for February is......

I am pleased to announce that the charity that Kristen's Custom Creations will be featuring for the month of February is Apraxia-Kids.

Thank you to Kim Rieck for providing resources for Apraxia-KIDS. I have designed a necklace specifically for this organization and will have it available for viewing on my blog next week. As I have mentioned before my goal is to bring awareness and raise money every month for a different charity. Below is some information on Apraxia KIDS. Please also visit their site

Apraxia of speech, also known as verbal apraxia or dyspraxia, is a speech disorder in which a person has trouble saying what he or she wants to say correctly and consistently. It is not due to weakness or paralysis of the speech muscles (the muscles of the face, tongue, and lips). The severity of apraxia of speech can range from mild to severe.

p.s. Thank you to everyone for your suggestions this was a tough decision.
