We all deserve to feel a moment of joy and hope.
We all deserve to have someone make us smile in our darkest times.
We should all feel like someone cares when we don't know if we'll have a home to live in or money to pay for food.
9 years ago, I founded A Slice of Hope to raise joy and optimism in homeless shelters.
Did you know that many homeless shelters have children, women and senior citizens as well? In many shelters, the guests are not homless, but they work countless hours and still don't make enough to pay their bills and put food on the table.
So our goal is to feed the body and energize the spirit as well.
While feeding the body is critical, it's also important that a person feel the strength of spirit to fight life's daily challenges.
So we throw pizza parties with live music in homeless shelters. We create a warm and joyful atmosphere with hundreds of pizzas coming in, while live music soothes, heals and inspires people.
A shelter guest wrote to us saying that "No one else does what you do for us. No one else comes in just to make us feel better."
You can see pictures from our parties at: http://asliceofhope.org/gallery.php
While we are throwing parties in shelters all across the country, we focus on creating one moment of joy for one person in need.
This personal approach has led to helping over 250,000 people, thank to all your donations!
I hope you'll help once again and sponsor a moment of joy for a person in need for just $1!
$100 dollars let us honor you as a Pillar of Hope!
$500 dollars lets us honor you by sponsoring a party in your name!
Thank you for your time, your support and your generosity :)

A simple kind word, a gentle touch, a caring smile can make a person under stress want to fight on.
We create a vehicle to energize one person in one moment on one day. We raise morale and raise spirits in homeless shelters by throwing pizza parties with live music..
Let me take you to the pizza party in the homeless shelter: Picture live music playing in the shelter. Imagine the air of anticipation among the shelter’s guests. Then, stacks of fresh, hot pizzas are brought in. As the party begins, the shelter guests break into cheers and clapping. Smiles are all around.
As the serving begins, the music melts away their cares, people are snapping their fingers, singing along and making song requests. Some get up and start dancing. For a while, they are just human beings like you and me.
The shared strength, hope and caring continues on long after the party. This year, we’re throwing parties all across the country from August 17th - August 22nd. We hope you will help us to create a memorable moment for a person in need.
We combine your donation with all the dollars from across the country to create tens of thousands of happy moments in shelters nationwide. When you're feeling happy, you get recharged and you can attack life's challenges all over again. One happy moment can change a life. Be that change! Please donate and sponsor a moment of joy today.
A $100 donation will earn you the title of a Pillar of Hope. Learn even more at www.asliceofhope.org
Slice of Hope is always growing to help more people than ever. We are also putting together an endowment so that your donations can be used for projects throughout the year as part of our Enduring Donation plan.
