To fill some of you in, that don't know, I am taking a break from the corporate recruiting world and have joined, and am now running, a non-profit called The Wayfarer Foundation. I am currently working on growing our Skid Row Carnival of Love program which brings a day of love and resources to those experiencing homelessness, in an area of Los Angeles, CA, called Skid Row. Our goal is to take this event to other cities in America, starting in 2018! We are currently raising money for our website, event in January 2018, and the expansion of our program. Please help us bring love and resources to those who need it. Please share! I thank you all for your support!
Website will be up soon with more information, videos, and ways to get invovled (www.skidrowcarnivaloflove.org)
More about SKID ROW CARNIVAL OF LOVE:
SKID ROW CARNIVAL OF LOVE'S mission is to transform the way our community responds to the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We are building a community of organizations that are working towards the same goal as us: to break the cycle of homelessness. We aim to bring a balance between communities by increasing the love for our neighbors in life. We create unique experiences that uplift, empower, and enhance the lives of those who are experiencing homelessness. We connect people to resources that provide continued support through their journey out of homelessness. We are a holistic organization that breaks the cycle of homelessness.
On January 27th, 2018, we come together to create a carnival tailor-made for the beautiful people of Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness in, or around, Skid Row. For one day, there is no us or them. No rich or poor. It’s simply about unconditional love and coming together as a community.
The Skid Row Carnival of Love (SRCOL) is Los Angeles’ fastest growing community event benefiting and celebrating those currently experiencing homelessness. The carnival offers career opportunities, DMV I.D. cards, educational programs, legal and housing services, as well as physical, mental, and dental health care, fun and games, dancing, donations, haircuts, feet washing, good food, and great friends help us transform skid row into a world of sincere connection, love, and hope.
We are adding another event to our calendar year- A WINTER WONDERLAND event to kick off the holiday season!
On December 2nd, 2017, we come together to throw a holiday celebration with real snow!! We are creating a joyful holiday event for kids and their families who are experiencing homelessness.
This event will be pure joy with snow, toys, Santa, elves, hot coco, winter donations, food, holiday activities, dancing, and more!
We are raising money for both events, as well as the expansion of this te SRCOL program, and for our new website! More information and details coming soon on how to sign up for these events and how to get involved.
