After we helped raise $140,000 for charities supporting mental health last year, we kept thinking...where do the funds actually go and how are they used? To answer this question, the Fasting5k team went and visited the Boston charity that received our donation, The Amal Women's Center (http://www.metro.us/news/local-news/boston/muslim-operated-womens-shelter-dorchester) and met with Malika Macdonald, who is the National Director for Transitional Housing.
What we found and truly appreciated was the cause and affect that single donation can have. She showed us how our donations helped build an entire community resource center and computer lab. That center will help countless women and youth apply to jobs and get back on their feet so they can live an independent and joy filled life. She also shared that a volunteer instructor would be coming in to teach the kids coding, which could lead to one of these kids becoming the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. The cause and effects of donating are powerful, all it takes is a single seed to allow hundreds of branches to develop.
Help us make an impact and please donate any amount possible before event day this Saturday, June 10th.
