Crime Victims Conference of East Texas

IMG_0951Judy and myself (Chuck Cox) spoke at the 1st Annual Crime Victims Conference of East Texas.  It was an honor to speak to such a large gathering of Law Enforcement professionals, DSHS and CPS professionals.

This conference was part of the ongoing training for those who deal daily with very difficult stressful situations, decisions and people undergoing tragedy.   Different offices and personnel had the opportunity to interact and understand how they can all work together to help victims.

 

We commend the Henderson County, District Attorney’s Office for putting the conference on.   We enjoyed being invited, and sharing our story and thoughts.  This was our first time telling our story in front of an audience, without just answering specific questions from reporters.  Thank You

While at the conference we met other non-profit citizen volunteer groups.  One of which we feel we need to tell you about was Victim Relief Ministries, a non-denominational organization that provides support to victims and victim families.  It consists of a core of volunteer pastors and others trained in counseling victims.  They provide one on one help and counseling to victims and their families, in the wake of any type of tragedy large or small.    While no one can fully understand the grief, pain each person feels when a tragedy occurs, one on one faith-based support from a trustworthy source is a very important service.  There is no cost for their service and they have many resources to offer.   We fully support their work and have put a link to their web page under our Partners, Information & links tab.  Or you can follow the link below.

Team Charlie’s Dinosaur takes the Plunge for Special Olympics

On Saturday February 25th, at Owens Beach in Tacoma, Washington, the first annual Special Olympic’s Polar Bear Plunge was held.  The Event raised more than 75,000.00 dollars for Special Olympics, and “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” was there.  A hearty group of about 30 “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” Tee-shirted supporters, representing the largest non-commercial group, braved 40 degree waters to raise funds for Special Olympics.

Judy and I where there but alas…… no we didn’t plunge.    If you look at the first picture you will notice the Coca-Cola Polar bear to the far right, he also did not take the Polar Bear Plunge.  Check out the nifty “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” Tee shirts.  ”Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” was accepting the award for largest non-commercial group.

2013-02-23 12.15.00

Can you spot any of the “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” people?  They plunged in groups so that Pierce County Sheriff Divers could ensure everyone got out safely.

2013-02-23 12.17.59

Ed Troyer, the head of the Puget Sound CrimeStoppers, who sponsor “Charlie’s Dinosaur” was a bit cold after his plunge.  Ed and “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” raised over $1000.00 dollars in pledges, so he took the plunge in full uniform.

 

I of course had to add at least Moral Support.

2013-02-23 12.18.37

We are very grateful that “Team Charlie’s Dinosaur” was able to support this worthy cause.   I may even get wet next year……(don’t hold your breath on that one)….. Who looks warmer and more comfortable,  Ed or Me…….
