It is estimated that 3-4 million children in the United States witness domestic violence in their homes each year. Research shows that nature can help with negative life stress on children and help them deal with adversity going forward. In response to this issue, Mary Kay Inc. and The Mary Kay FoundationSM partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to build Nature Explore Classrooms at domestic violence shelters across the U.S. in an effort to bring nature into the daily lives of children affected by abuse. The multi-year initiative is the largest corporate collaboration for the Nature Explore Classroom program and provides children a safe and supportive space to explore, learn and heal as they recover from the effects of witnessing abuse. Twenty-two Nature Explore Classrooms have been dedicated across the country with the most recent occurring this month in Naples, Fla. and Las Vegas.
