“Our name really speaks to our fundamental philosophy at CHARM: We truly believe children are magical, innocent, pure beings who need to be protected and nurtured,” Jaclyn says. “If we can make a difference in one child’s life, we will have been successful. But our goals are much bigger than that.”
Our Mission CHARM (Children Are Magical) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization developed by children’s book author and public speaker Jaclyn Nesheiwat Stapp. CHARM aims to heighten awareness of children’s issues and provide underprivileged youth with the tools for enriching their lives through education, encouragement, and valuable resources. Our charity will partner with trusted foundations and organizations to provide children and their families the resources to help overcome challenges in their life.
What Makes Us Different Jaclyn is committed to helping youth and families embrace “hope and a drive to succeed” with the resources and support offered by the collaborative partnerships of CHARM. No matter the adversity or circumstance, her goal is to empower every youth to seek the inner light and voice within that speaks “I AM STRENGTH.”
CHARM derives its inspiration and purpose from Jaclyn’s own life experiences as one of five siblings raised by her widowed single mother, experiencing firsthand the dilemma of need with few available resources, yet having a passionate calling to meet needs of other families around her in similar circumstances. She envisioned CHARM in her high school years, and now feels blessed as a wife, mother, mentor, and speaker who has addressed children and family issues all over the world to bring that vision to fulfillment..
Jaclyn created a sub-division of CHARM, I AM STRENGTH, where adults can find resources and support for such issues as domestic abuse, alcohol abuse, death or suicide, discrimination, and family or personal tragedy.
I AM STRENGTH offers a community of support and a sounding board for adults and families of all backgrounds. I AM STRENGTH.
