From her Facebook Page:
"October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! I wrote a song for all the little ones who are trapped at home with no haven of a public school, or other outlets, during this pandemic. I will not forget them, and you can't either! I am donating all the proceeds from this project to Hope's Wings, a domestic violence program in Richmond, KY. Together, we can support the protection and aid of local women and children who need an escape from abuse.
