Thank You for visiting this page and considering a Donation to Cornerstone Community Outreach.
"But James! You are from Detroit! Why are you supporting this organization in Chicago?"
Well, I will save you the long story. The short truth is that I was fortunate enough to befriend several people who have decicated their lives to helping the poor and homeless in Chicago.
In the 15 years I have been associated with them, I have yet to find anything comparable. These are not weekend warriors or feel-good volunteers. These are individuals who have all chosen to live in the community they support, and spend their lives working full-time in the service of others in need.
From my perspective, every penny is spent wisely. There is just a need for more pennies.
I admire these friends of mine more than I can express in this forum. I do not live the lives they lead. I am a weekend warrior. I have not dedicated anywhere near the time and personal sacrifice they have.
But I can provide more pennies. And I can attempt to recruite others to provide pennies. Or Dollars.
Would you please research Cornerstone Community Outreach and consider donating to their cause?
As an extra incentive I have upped the Ante on myself.
If Donations reach a total of $500 I will train to Run both the Freep Press Marathon and the Chicago Marathon on consecutive weekends. (2 marathons in 1 week!)
$1,000 and I will add in an ultramarathon in September.
For amounts above and beyond, well, make me an offer...
Thank you for spending time reading this...
