Working by the capitol, I pass by the homeless shelter almost every day. It reminds me of how lucky I am, and how many people are in need in my community. Bright Beginnings not only sheds light on the problem of homelessness in DC but provides an outlet of support and hope for the homeless children and their families. This organization is committed to help all children receive a proper education and a safe environment to grow. I believe it is important to support this cause in particular, because every child deserves an opportunity for education and the tools for success. Not everyone in DC has the same opportunities, so to be able to help bridge the gap is an amazing privilege.
