Children who have been affected by divorce are more likely to have lower grades, increased numbers of absences and are more likely to
abuse drugs and alcohol. With more than 63 percent of children in the
United States living in a single parent home, Blended Love hopes to
raise awareness and help bring resources to schools in the community.
Blended Love is using social media and hosting events during the month
of July to help promote their cause and invite others to support and
spread their message.
Monica Epperson, founder of Blended Love and a certified teacher, has a mission to bring hope and camaraderie to the children of divorce
through the classroom.
"Child-centered divorce month is all about the child of divorce,” Epperson said. “Our goal as an organization is to promote support for
the children and offer resources and tips to parents to help mitigate
the negative effects of divorce."
Blended Love is teaming up with Chick Fil-A to give community members an opportunity to support the cause. On July 22 from 5p.m. to 8
p.m., the Chick-fil-A on 103rd and Memorial in Tulsa will donate a
portion of all proceeds to Blended Love. To participate, eat at
Chick-fil-A on July 22 and place your receipt in the Blended Love box
located at the restaurant. If you are unable to attend the event, the
drive thru will have a Blended Love box and will be donating proceeds
from the entire day.
Blended love is also offering additional information about how to help your children cope with divorce, including 4 Ways to Create a Child-Centered Divorce.
