No Child Unloved Serving Children
The mission of No Child Unloved is simple but multifaceted: enabling children to enjoy their childhood. In 2014 Angie Cox embarked on a mission to bring joy to the lives of abused, seriously ill, and underprivileged children.
Childhood should be among the happiest and most carefree years of life. Children have a unique and sunshiny perspective and love so easily but, unfortunately there are many forces at work against them.
Currently they are collecting donations to provide Christmas to 200+ children and that is rising everyday. These children are from abusive homes, children with cancer and children who are underprivileged.
Since then the organization has had the immense pleasure of championing a number of causes and of course these programs will now be forever apart of our Charity:
No more unnecessary suffering. Here is to making the rest of 2014 magical for even more children!
Woman hopes life story will prevent child abuse
GIFFORD -- An area woman has gone through some horrific things in her life. Born in a prison to drug addicts and adopted by a woman who abused her. Now, she's Taking Action so others don't have to suffer like she did. WCIA-3's Anna Carrera brings us her story.
Angie Cox has overcome a lot to get to today. Both she and her twin brother have come a long way, but she says she still has work to do, reaching out to families to help stop the cycle of abuse.
"David and I's childhood was, I don't even have a word for it. It was just evil."
Cox's life now is far-removed from her upbringing. Her foster mom was anything but motherly.
"She had three biological children that she never touched. She never touched them in a bad way, but David and I, she did. She raped us both. She beat us daily."
Each day she lived under that roof broke her heart and sunk her spirits.
"She killed our bunny rabbits. She literally chopped off their heads."
Cox finally got away when she was 14 years old, but even now, "I think I've forgiven her, but I will never forget."
As life went on, Cox couldn't escape the nightmares, so she started writing.
"The more I journaled, the more descriptive it would be."
Those memories she locked away for years started flooding back. But this time was different.
"I thought I really wanted to make a bad situation into a good situation."
She channeled that energy into a book; a word of warning for the future.
"It's really given me some freedom and it's really given me some relief."
With relief came change; a new home, a new family. And she adopted a daughter of her own, Amber.
"I never really knew what love was until Amber came along. She's so flamboyant and, so am I, but she makes me breathe. She makes me want to fight for everything."
Everything includes the people in her community who Cox shared her message with.
"I was never loved. But, because I was never loved, I love. So now, I know how to love."
Cox says she feels like this is what she's supposed to be doing now; spreading the word to stop child abuse. So, she wouldn't change what she's been through because it's brought her to today.
Cox's book is titled, Surviving the Devil: An Account of Adoption and Abuse.
Awarded Author of the Year 2014
Farmingdale, NY, May 15, 2014
Angie Cox and her twin brother were born into a prison world addicted to heroin. Her and her brother’s early years were spent in a loveless and torturous relationship with a foster mother who abused and neglected them. Somehow they managed to survive and grow into adulthood with a faith in God that she learned through her life experiences. Angie went on to earn her B.S. in Business and Finance at Brunel University, Bournemouth and Poole College. She has since written her memoir entitled “Surviving the Devil: An Account of Adoption and Abuse.” In her book she describes the agonizing existence endured by her and her brother at the hands of their foster mother. The goal of her memoir is to bring awareness to child abuse by not skimming over the ugly details so that people who read her book will turn their outrage into action. She is currently working on her newest book due out in 2014 entitled “Life After Abuse.” Angie’s time is also spent in promoting child abuse prevention and animal abuse advocacy, inspirational speaking, and of course working with abused and sick children throughout her Non Profit Charity. Her favourite quote “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear” Martin Luther King Jr. exemplifies her outlook on life today.
