It's no secret that I don't really like to "do" birthdays. This year I realize that I have many reasons to celebrate and be grateful. For the last two years The Northwest Detroit Flood Recovery Project has been my purpose and passion. It is heart breaking to know that so many of my neighbors are still suffering because of the flooding of August 11, 2014. On October 15th volunteers will be cleaning up and rebuilding basements that have waited more than 2 years for assistance. You, too can help 10 of my neighbors on their road to recovery. In celebration of my 38th birthday my goal is to raise $3,800 for Race 2 Rebuild Detroit.
