Unemployment continues to be a serious social evil, particularly for the long-term unemployed.
This fundraiser is designed to help people meet their basic needs and become productive citizens again by:
- Creating an emergency fund for those who have exhausted their unemployment insurance and are ineligible for rental assistance, health insurance assistance, food stamps, or other life-sustaining programs
- Providing financing to start and market a business or get retrained for a new occupation
- Developing a marketing campaign to encourage businesses to hire the hardest hit Americans
- Providing mental health support
Not helping the long-term unemployed is costing us a fortune. Providing support to help them become self-sufficient again is the #1 way to boost the economy as a whole!
