Project Night Light – Nonprofit of the Month

Project Night Light provides Bags Of Hope to abused and neglected children in the Fargo, North Dakota and Moorhead, Minnesota areas. Founded by Pebbles Thompson, this faith-based nonprofit gives hurting children a bit of security.

Project Night LightI met Pebbles last year at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. She and her family were one of the families recognized by Disney as for their volunteer work. I promised her that I would write about her organization when I returned home. Unfortunately, I misplaced the material she gave me. And with that, my promise was forgotten. Pebbles and I reconnected on Twitter, which reminded me about Project Night Light and here we are!

Purpose of Project Night Light

  • To provide Bags Of Hope to children who are screened for abuse or neglect in the the Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MI areas
  • To help “ease the transition of the traumatic and frightening situation they are forced to deal with unexpectedly”

Bags Of Hope

Each bag is made up of specific items that are the same type and brand throughout the organization. Some examples of the items are – a flashlight, pajamas, socks and underwear, toothbrush and toothpaste. It is important to maintain consistency for the Advocacy Centers that the bags are delivered to. The fleece blankets, though, are handmade. Volunteers are asked to make them by following the directions found on Project Night Light’s Items page.

How You Can Help

Besides making blankets, you can make monetary donations, which will go directly to purchasing items for the Bags Of Hope or something specific that you can request. Follow Project Night Light on Twitter @ndnightlight and like on Facebook.

I think this says it all about Project Night Light – “Sharing Light in the darkness of child abuse.”

  2. Connie, you seriously know about almost every wonderful organization out there! I’m really impressed. I’m equally impressed with the fact that you take the time to post about all of them. This seems like a great nonprofit. Thanks for sharing it with me.

  3. Abuse just kills me! There are so many wonderful people out there that want kids and can’t have them. If you are only going to abuse yours, why not give them to someone that actually wants them? :-( So so sad! You are doing such a selfless job by writing about and promoting such organizations as these!!

  4. Thank you for sharing this. That video was so sad but informative. Its true abuse knows no limit to age, race or social class. I have followed Project Night Light on FB and twitter.

  11. Connie. How awesome. I was reading in the Pentecostal Evangel about Project Night-Light. What a powerful ministry. Do they have one in the Orlando area or Tampa area?
