BENEFITING: SIMPLE WAY
Our family went to visit a neoghborhood in Kensington...It's not very far from our comfy, cushy neighborhood here in the Philly suburbs. We couldn't believe our eyes...there is a war zone of poverty, only about 30 minutes away from our house! We met our friend, Shane Claiborne there who started the Simple Way community many years ago. He and his friends moved into the neighborhood and have slowly made strides to rehabilitate it. However, there is more work to be done!
As dilapidated real estate becomes available, the Simple Way tries to buy homes and then rehab them for people who are ready and responsibly enough to own a home but don't have the money.
They called us about this house to see if we could help, so we thought about our friends & family who might want to help.
We are going to do our best to raise the amount of $20K to help the Simple Way buy the house! We hope you will want to help...when it's finished being renovated, we will take a field trip to Kensington to see it with those who want to.
