Houston Family in Crisis...The Great Flood
April 26, 2016

We all  by now, know of the misfortune that has befallen the city of Houston. Flooding that has caused Afrakans more so than any other ethnic See More

THE STORY:

Greetings

This fundraising effort came about due to my being personally overwhelmed, of being unable to contribute to a homeless family with young children in the New York area who were due to be evicted from their weekly motel room! Though 'Life With Purpose' had been on the back burner conceptually for over a decade...it has to full circle in it intent!

Tearfully, I begin to stress becoming consumed of helplessness Then I begin to think of how the issue of homelessness could be affected with a fundraising campaign. Hence, 'Life With Purpose Emergency Services' begin it's journey.

Goals and Use of Donations

1. Funding for those in dire emergency situations needing immediate action, such as: 

•Lack of food rations
•Utility disconnection
•Pending evictions
•Sudden and short term homelessness

2. Locating and aquiring abandoned and foreclosed properties to refurbish for the homeless and those in need of shelter.

3. Create a communications network so that people in need, and those who are aware of someone in need, can reach out to us for help.

4. Have enough reserve funding on hand that when such emergencies arise, 'Life With Purpose Emergency Services' is ready to serve! 


I WANT TO FIRMLY STRESS THAT THIS IS NON PROFIT CAMPAIGN! This to serve the people, not to profit from the suffering and carnage that culminates during such a crisis.

Right now this is a solo effort that I hope will grow, helping hands stretching across communities, where we show our concern and love for one another!

I/We thank you in advance, are are deeply appreciative of any amount able to be donated! We R On
