We always find reasons to complain, reasons to say I need more or what I have isn’t enough. Unless we ourselves are going through it, we don’t pay much mind to certain things. I decided to write this post to bring awareness to those who may want to help but just don’t know how. How different would this world be if we all stopped to lend a helping hand to our brothers and sisters in their worst of times.
Recently I found out that an old friend from high school lost her home. It was on July 8th around 3am that her house caught on fire. They don’t know the details of how the fire started. They just know that it happened all too quickly and by the grace of God everyone got out safe!
They lived in Paterson, NJ in the same home for 21 years and a total of 20 people, 4 related families were all displaced.
Now I may not have much to give but I started looking through my house and how many toys and clothes my kids have that maybe my old friend who happens to be a single mom might be in need of and I just started packing. I had my son be apart of the giving as well so he can begin to understand what it is to be SELF-LESS and why it’s so important to give.
I am putting together project #give for those who wish to donate whatever they can to help these 4 different families that lost everything. It is our social and moral responsibility to extend our hands to help another human being in their worst of times.
Here is a list of all the people who were displaced. If you would like to donate any items, I will be collecting them to bring to these families. (Please note: They will also accept GENTLY used clothing.) If you have any questions feel free to comment below or send a direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for Reading and even if it’s just a prayer that you can give, you have just made a change in these families lives.
