MLMauction Charities & Causes
we recognize that there are numerous worthy charities and causes that deserve support. While we wish we could
support them all, we recognize our ability to support the ones we do is directly attributable to your participation
in the MLMauction Penny Auctions. We, and the children we support, are deeply grateful for your support.
As our success permits, we will add more organizations to the list. The charities we currently support
are listed in alphabetical order as follows:
The MISSION of Dove House is
to minimize trauma to child victims of sexual abuse and their non-offending family members by providing a
centralized, safe and child-friendly facility from which a multidisciplinary team (MDT) conducts investigation and
intervention activities; to advocate for and support child victims and non-offending family members by representing
their interest throughout the process, promoting appropriate therapies and making referrals to community resources
as needed; and to enhance the process for optimal case resolution.
Working together as a Team
from the very beginning of a report of child sexual abuse not only significantly reduces the trauma that children
and their families go through, but the multidisciplinary team approach also results in much higher quality
investigations, which leads to optimum conditions for effective prosecution of perpetrators against our children.
Our District Attorney’s office has averaged an 86% successful prosecution rate of these perpetrators since
2003 – a tremendous improvement over the less than 20% successes prior to Dove House’s
Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter’s
mission is to provide a safe and nurturing emergency shelter bringing together a broad range of services for
children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
We are a temporary, safe and caring haven for abused, abandoned and neglected children in
the Midlands. The Shelter provides residential care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. At Palmetto Place, we provide
medical and mental health care, crisis adjustment/transitional counseling, after school tutoring and recreational
and social activities in addition to food, clothing and shelter. Since the Shelter opened in 1977, we have cared
for more than 6,700 at-risk children from newborn to age 17. When home is not a safe and loving place, we open our
doors and offer each child the opportunity for a better, healthier and more productive future.
The Indian society is defined by a Hindu caste system that results in discrimination. It consists
of the haves, the have nots, and the untouchables. Wallowing at the bottom of this system of degradation
are the “untouchables.” They are treated as outcasts. They are considered impure and suffer
constant discrimination. They receive no government services or support. No schools, no hope…
An estimated 3,000 of these children are slave children in the rock
quarries of Andhra Pradesh, “sold” by their parents as payments for high interest debts. These
boys and girls, 6-18 years of age, are members of the “untouchable” caste and have never attended
school. Until Praveen Chakravarthy did something about it.
Our mission partner in
India, Pastor Praveen Chakravarthy, started ministering to these slave children back in 2008. After years of
effort on behalf of the children, in 2011 a door opened for Praveen with sympathetic government officials who
gained the release of 250 slave children. As a result, laws were enforced and the quarry owners were forced
to release large numbers of children. Pastor Praveen and his organization, Sylom Pastor's League, assisted
over 500 children to relocate to their villages. Many children were not able to remember where they lived or
their parents did not want them back because they were too poor to care for them. Pastor Praveen and other
pastors took the children into their homes and currently they care for over 400 children in seven different leased
homes around Andhra Pradesh.
The mission of St.
Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic
diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied
treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
responsibilities are to the children with catastrophic diseases, their families, and to the donors that have
committed their personal resources toward our Mission. To fully meet these responsibilities, we are committed to an
explicit set of values. These values are the standards of behavior that we use to guide our daily actions and
decisions. We will ensure that these standards of behavior are adhered to through ongoing training of all personnel
working at St. Jude, and by annually evaluating the executive leadership, faculty and staff in their adherence to

supportive care, and their families with the level of information and support necessary for them to make informed
