Lauren J & Five Loaves Farm (revamped)

Hello friends, past, present and future supporters! I am working to clarify my life's direction, as God moves me forward each day, and I am not 100% clear that I am called to the entertainment industry in the way that many feel called! I do know that the Arts will always be a part of my life, but my heart is here in this fair city of Buffalo, NY. I am attached to my church community and the work that God is doing on the West Side of Buffalo, not to mention, my support system that exists here.
I am not putting God in a box, or ruling out the fact that He works and moves in mysterious ways, that my AMTC journey thus far has been a blessing and an asset to me. I have been blown away by the monetary, spiritual and emotional support which has gotten me this far in the program, I think any further fundraising should be focused on my completing my personal music project-working title: Turn Around To album that has been partially produced and put aside for years! I don't think that God is finished with this journey in the arts, but I believe that I should focus locally, soak up the amazing arts scene in Buffalo, pursue opportunities here at home!
Speaking of journeys...

...I have had the privilege to be connected to 5 Loaves Farm, a West Side (Buffalo, NY) Urban Farming Initiative. Check out media coverage HERE and HERE !

This is a picture of the neighborhood children connecting with Matt Kauffman, Farm Manager of 5 Loaves Farm, as he educates them about the connection that our lives have with the life that comes from WORM POOP/ compost/ the Earth!

It has been a joy to spread the word about the work going on at the Farm, and I'd like to support them, by taking this opportunity to donate funds! By helping me, you will be helping them! $5,000 is the amount I'd like to give them, but I believe that we can exceed that!

I encourage you to click on all of the links above and to prayerfully and thoughtfully consider giving, PRAYING, and spreading the word!

Thank you, in advance for taking the time to check this out!
