THE STORY:

Consider this.

You're at home & hungry. You go to the kitchen and grab a snack which makes you feel full and sleepy. On the way to the bedroom, you stop for a bio break and then it's off to dream land.

You wake up only to repeat the pattern throughout the day. OR wait- you decide to go out for some fun and look forward to the time when you can come back and crash on the couch with a good book.

Making these types of choices is a luxury that most of us take for granted. We eat when we want to eat, rest when we want to rest, we go out of the house when we feel like having fun or stay at home if we're feeling lazy. These choices are the luxury of having a place to call home.

What if you didn't have a place to call home? What if you couldn't go to the kitchen when you felt hungry? Or find a bathroom when you needed it? Or lay in bed if you needed a nap or were feeling sick?

Worse- what if you were a parent and you couldn't provide these things for your child?

That's the issue that homeless parents face all day every day. Finding food, a bathroom or a place to rest simply doesn't exist.

All day long, homeless parents struggle to provide for their kids. 15 hours of their day is spent fighting a fight just to have the things that we take for granted because homeless families who are lucky to have shelter for the night are asked to leave each morning by 7am and aren't allowed back in until 10pm.

You can make a difference. You can help.

A donation to Compass Community Services can help homeless families of San Francisco get over these daily challenges as CCS provides services to help homeless families establish a path to find a place to call home.

Even a donation of $1 can make a difference. And Crowdrise is so cool that they have a contest in which a $9 donation by 07/31/10 can win you a Apple Macbook Pro and a $29 donation by 09/30/10 can win you an Apple iPad.

So come on- help me celebrate the birth of our new son. Instead of coming to a baby shower and raising a glass to celebrate, attend my virtual baby shower by making a donation. It's easy and a lot cheaper than buying us a new baby gift. And plus, all the cool kids are donating.
