I work for an amazing non-profit called A Slice of Hope that throws pizza parties with live music in homeless shelters across the country. I have been working with them for a little over 6 months now, and already I have seen what an incredibly influential organization this is.
Just from the few parties that I've been to so far, I've realized that it is so important to cultivate a sense of hope in life. Just believing that we can reach a goal can change so much. These pizza parties not only feed a person physically, but they also feed a person emotionally and mentally. Imagine a party of smiles, food, laughter, dancing and singing. It may not seem like much, and to some, it may seem like a pretty normal situation, but these 2 hours have changed people's lives and given them the strength to fight life's daily struggles.
Hope can change everything.
We've all been through hard times. For me personally, the security of food and shelter has never been an issue, but I know that in those times, I rely on the support from others to lift me back up. You can be that support for someone else in need.
We are in our 9th year and have reached over 250,000 people nationwide so far. Our annual week of parties is AUGUST 17-22. This year, we are reaching more people than ever before! This means that we need your help more than ever before! We are a grassroots organization and every $1 counts toward creating a happy moment for someone in need.
Here's a little more information about who we are and you can also visit www.asliceofhope.org to learn more and see where our parties are being thrown this year!
A Slice of Hope is a Celebration of the Good in All of us. It spreads Joy and Optimism across America. We throw pizza parties with live music in homeless shelters. Just $1 sponsors 2 pizza slices and live music for a person in a homeless shelter directly making 1 person’s life better. A Slice of Hope donor directly creates a happy moment for a person in need. We combine that $1 with all the dollars from across the country ,allowing our donors to create tens of thousands of happy moments all across the country.
When you're feeling happy, you get recharged and you can attack life's challenges all over again. We feed the body with Pizza. We energize the spirit with Live Music. We soothe the mind with a happy moment and a happy memory. When people are reminded of happier times, it gives us the strength to fight on. It reminds us that life can get better. One happy moment can change a life.
A Slice of Hope is also a unifying project that shares strength, hope and joy across America. Every $1 sponsors 2 slices and live music for a person in need. For just $1, a donor is making a direct difference for a person in need and creating a happy moment.
Thanks everyone for your time and support! A Slice of Hope could not be alive without donors and sponsors like yourself!
