THE STORY:

Hey Everyone! I am competing in the Miss Thief River Falls/Miss Riverfest pageant in July this year. My platform is based around providing comfort and care to those experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. It is also part of a mission to stop labeling people as homeless. Homeless is their address, not their name. I hope to raise money for the Care and Share in Crookston, MN. The money will go toward residents' needs (bathroom supplies, toys for children, canned goods etc.) This local shelter is amazing. I've been there many times with our church youth group and the people you meet are just amazing and their stories are so inspiring! "The mission of the Care & Share is focusing on not just helping people find housing, but encouraging strengths and community connections that will help them meet any challenges to their new found stability, thereby breaking the cycle of homelessness." People may ask, why focus on homelessness? You can't take every homeless person off the street and give them a home! This may be true, but what I CAN do as one person is provide comfort to those needing a sense of family or friends, and just a touch of care, giving to those who have less than I. You can do the same! As one person, you can donate any amount that you feel would help those less fortunate at this point in their lives! Thank you for reading, and remember, you are providing a sense of comfort and care if you choose to donate! :)
