San Antonio, TX, September 20-21, 2023 – Chosen, a leading nonprofit helping children heal from trauma by strengthening their families, has unveiled its “Break the Cycle” initiative. Timed alongside the 10th anniversary of The Big Give, a 24-hour online fundraising event, and marks the start of Chosen’s considerable year-end fundraising goal of $300,000.
