BENEFITING: The Meeting Ground
Every day we pass them on the streets of our cities. Men and women whose lives have been altered in such ways that you would have a difficult time saying how old someone is, where they came from, what their lives were like before they had to make the street their home.
In my tiny town, there are several homeless shelters and hypothermia centers to ensure that men, women and their children have a place to eat a hot, nutritious meal, take a shower, sleep without fear of harm to themselves or those they protect in the night. My fundraiser is to raise funds to aid in the housing programs in Cecil County, Maryland as well as awareness about the face of homelessness in our region and its surrounding areas.
Raise your eyes from your smartphones, unplug yourself from your ear-buds, and look down - for down is where you will find them. Those men, women and children that life has forgotten. Each donation will go to those programs already in place, that is doing the work. Let us be the facilitators. Let us be the hand in our pocket, to those searching eyes just looking to be seen. Thank you!
