For those not familiar with PALS, this is the organization where Ashton spent her time mentoring and tutoring women who have been left behind. The reason the Angel Trees are so important is that these women tend to drop out of their education programs during the Holiday season and hide in the shadows because they can’t care for their children’s needs. A simple gift, donated unwrapped so the mom can wrap it and give it to her child, will keep them in their educational program. A small gesture from someone who isn’t struggling can represent the tipping point for whether these women will succeed or withdraw.
