The mission of River + Pearls is to cultivate hope, healing and growth in the hearts and lives of children and youth.  Their mission is to encourage, equip and empower girls to thrive in all areas of their lives and explore creative ways how their life can make a difference in their community and world in a way that points others to life.  Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black, and his wife Nan, have donated $10,000 to provide healing art therapy to 6,500 hospitalized children during the coronavirus pandemic.  Nan Black is a pediatric intensive care nurse and she knew the need.  Nan issued a challenge to other MLB wives to get them involved to help in other states.  So far, 65,000 copies of My Journey have been donated and are being used by more than 175 children’s hospitals in all 50 states. https://riverandpearls.org/
