Family Promises of the Verdugos is an organization which helps homeless families get back on their feet. Job, housing, making sure that parents and their children find their ways back into normal life. Family Promise provides shelter, food, support, and office supplies (for resumes and job searching) while helping families find success.
I have volunteered for this group before. There is nothing more valuable than helping kids get into their own bedroom. And getting parents back to being self-reliant. We all need a hand sometimes. This is about teaching people to fish, while giving them fish as they learn. It is about helping others to help themselves.
School is tough enough. Children should be enjoying childhood. Lets help get them back to that. Family Promise is about getting back to a life of normalcy and enjoying all the comforts we all too often take for granted.
You can donate as little as 1 dollar or maybe 10 is more your style. Every little bit helps this wonderful organization.Of course why not make it a bit fun as well? Have you ever seen those Mud and Obstacle Runs? Ever seen a Jedi run in one? Me neither. All those robes and boots, seems insanely heavy. Well I am willing to put myself through some torture for a worthy cause.
I will be offering level rewards. If we reach our goal I will run a Spartan Race (mud/obstacle 3 mile run) in Jedi Robes. There will be pictures and even. This will be difficult and really present a challenge. But it will help get the message out there and I am sure provide a few laughs to go along with helping a great organization.
1,000.00 - Simplistic Jedi Outfit. With Before and After Pictures.
2,000.00 - Full Jedi Outfit with Robe. With Before and After, as well as some Action Pictures.
5,000.00 - I will drag someone out to the race to film this craziness.
((Note: This is my first attempt. If we see some success expect future challenges. And feel free to suggest new challenges for our fundraising efforts.))
