I have had a Breast Cancer scare not too long ago, and I know that there are many people out there now who are either about to find out they have it, have had it, that someone they love has passed away from it, or that it has returned. There are strides every day towards making cancer easier to deal with. We would like to make a contribution, but we can't do it without you.
With the struggles world wide due to the economy, there are a lot of families that are just barely making it. Winter is coming up, and can be dangerous for those families. Especially if they're expecting or already have little ones. We would like to provide a service to these families. Anything from paying a month or so of rent and utilities to buying diapers, wipes and clothing for the little ones. But we can't do it without you.
Families all over the world...as well as here in the United States of America are starving. Barely able if able to get any food for themselves and/or their family. The earth makes enough food for everyone, but not everyone has the resources they need to access this bounty. We would like to make a contribution to go towards making it a little easier on them by providing them with some food and clothing. But we can't do it without you.
With the economy being as rough as it is, not everyone can afford to go to school with their supplies in hand, or very old used ones that aren't very useful. We would like to help with this. But we can't do it without you.
Rileys Children's Hospital is a wonderful place for children to be when they need the best of care. Sadly, not everyone can afford to get their treatment. Some of these children or only minutes old and may not make it through their first night. We want to try to change that. But we can't do it without you.
Every day, someone dies somewhere in the world, whether it be from a situation mentioned or a situation not mentioned. We would like to try to make a difference. The world is a tough place to be and they're a lot of different issues that we want to address at some point. We may not be able to, but then again we may. Two of the best places that we can contribute is Church and Food Banks. Yes, I know that it seems strange to some people, but it's fact. There are already organizations out there set up to help people, so we want to add to their funds. The funds raised here will be split between all the above mentioned. We will also be getting a number of gift cards to take out into the neighborhood and pass out to the homeless to provide them with a way to get some food for a while at the least with some new cloths. We will also look into providing them with a way to get to shelter, whether or not that means us paying for a hotel room for at least a week. But none of this is possible without your donations. Please....be generous....be thoughtful......help us make a difference in someone's life. Who knows....it may be you that we help.
Some of our members are in a really tough time. I am bound not to give names, but one has major medical issues and is in and out of the hospital and needs help getting medicine. This member also needs help with rent for some medical supplies.
Another member needs help with a serious housing situation for himself and his wife who is in a wheelchair. Their situation is unsafe and makes them feel like they're in a prision.
One of our members is also having a hard time recieving help in the neighborhood for new appliances and housing repairs.
The goal of this fundraiser is to raise enough money to help each of our members that absolutely need it and can't find the help they need.
A Better Start is meant to do just what the Title says. 15% of the donations will be donated to local churches to help those in need. An additional 10% will go towards local housing assistance programs.20% will go towards store supplies, and the remaining 55% will go into the General funds to either improve the website however that may be or help a family in need, even if it's just a single meal..
The end date is invalid, because if we put a time limit on helping others in need we will not reach our goal. So, once we meet our goal, we will start a new goal.
