THE STORY:

I'm getting back to my roots... my first job out of college was as a fundraiser with The Salvation Army. I learned that so many of the stereotypes you see on the homeless are not the reality for most. What always got me was the families - and especially children - effected by factors so often out of their control. I'm a mom, and I worry about my kids all the time - but I have never worried about how I would feed them or where they would sleep. I'm raising money for Light of Life Rescue Mission because, as a mom, I can't imagine the pain a parent experiences when the floor drops from beneath them and they can't provide even the basics like food and a bed to their children. This mission is showing people that they matter - not only to others who care enough to help but to God. So, as a fundraiser, I know I need to make the first donation. My $85 will help 33 people with a warm bed, a hot meal, a chance at recover. And the experience of caring and hope. Just $2.85 can give someone a chance at a new life. As we celebrate the Christmas season, what better way to show the spirit of God's love than through a gift like this? Please join me in supporting this cause!
