The tree is a symbol of life, knowledge and protection. These trees were designed and donated by Chicago artist Cassandra Ott to symbolize the special role court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers play in the life of abused and neglected children. Just as the larger tree shields the small sapling so it can grow and thrive, CASA volunteers provide vital advocacy and support for children who cannot speak for themselves. Proceeds from this Trees Plate With Purpose™ benefits National CASA so that they can speak up for over half a million abused and neglected children, providing stability and permanency.
