Tattoos For Recovery

Our ministry teamed up with an amazing local tattoo shop- New Life Ink- who is holding a fundraiser this weekend where their tattoos are drastically reduced in price, and half of what they earn is given to our ministry. Today was the first day, and it was an amazing experience. 

So many people came within the first hour and a half that we had to put a cap on the list and tell them to come back tomorrow, because the artists were booked through the entire night! We had close to 40 people today, and there will be many more than that tomorrow. The outpouring of support from the community in regards to our ministry was very humbling

We heard some great testimonies, met dozens of new friends, and succeeded in putting our name out there to let people know that there is help for addiction in the Marshfield area. I am so honored to be a part of a community of people who are banding together and demanding change.

Step by Step, day by day, choice by choice, and moment by moment- We KNOW that we can make a difference- that GOD can make a difference through us- and that as long as we stick together, WE WILL WIN THE WAR ON ADDICTION!

I just want to thank NEW LIFE INK in Schofield, Wisconsin for hosting this benefit and donating their time and incredible talent through their amazing artists, Jeff and Dustin. We are so grateful that you believe our cause is worthy enough to rally behind us to raise community awareness.  

I also want to thank our leadership team (who none of this would be possible without), and all of the people from the community who came out to show their love. I am so grateful for ALL of these wonderful people, and I can't wait and see what the benefit brings tomorrow!
