Voyage LA Selects Mara's Inspiring Story
Jan 21st, 2018 by Jane NobleWe are so proud of our founder, Mara James, for being selected as one of Voyage LA’s inspiring stories for Orange County. The heart of the mission of Voyage LA is to find the amazing souls who breathe life into their community. Mara is described as a rising star and yet her only aim is to change the way we view mental health and help families and children in need. In a mere 2 years since founding ELF, Mara has achieved so much through her sheer strength and determination.
2018 is the year that “The Power of Piggie Bear” will be distributed in Orange County as a result of grants awarded to ELF. “The Power of Piggie Bear” is a therapeutic tool for children that helps increase their EQ (Emotional Intelligence) and their capacity for compassion and self-love. Thanks to the generosity of an amazing group of women known as 100 Women Who Care, Orange County, we will be donating copies of the book to CHOC Children’s and Mission Hospital’s Camino Health Center, which serves the under privileged, high risk population.
