My name is Angie Cleveland, Founder of Breathe International. I am a person who has been touched by Love, and I want to share that with others! I believe that love is an action word. It is not just what we say but what we do that conveys that love. I am like anyone else. I've been hurt before, but learned the power of forgiveness. I was in need, and someone helped me. I was broken, and someone listened to me and comforted me. I share that love through music I produce and books I write. Feel free to check out Angie Cleveland's music at www.angiecleveland.com and www.reverbnation.com/angiecleveland.
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:35-40 KJV)
This campaign is designed to simply take the message of love to the world. We want to help people. We see the needs in our communities, country and other nations, but we want to help meet those needs. This campaign is an avenue to unite with other people in order to help those in need. This campaign is important to me because I simply want to give back to those who have been rejected and uncared for, the ones who do not have a voice. I was there, so I want to pay it forward.
I desire for every contributor to see this as a "we" effort and not a "me" one. We are all in this together, because we all can identify what it's like to be hurt, rejected, and without the things we need, whether it is food, clothing, shelter, or just a support system of people who believe in you and encourage you. The feeling we all get when we do something positive to change a life is fulfilling.
We are asking each contributor to donate $25 or more. Our fundraising goal is $60,000.Your donation will help cover travel costs for our team to participate in mission-oriented events that we are prepping for in Italy, Spain, Japan, the Caribbean and prison/urban ministry projects in the U.S. In return for your support, you will receive pre-ordered copies of my upcoming project, "Your Kingdom Come" (set to release in Summer 2014) as well as the upcoming project of labelmate, Jared White (set to release in Spring 2014). You will also be entered into a drawing for our Bahamas Cruise Getaway Drawing during this Summer 2014. You will receive a contribution report for your donations to Breathe International.
In a world where there is so much negativity, hate, and division, love is something we all desire. We may not go about seeking love the right way, but I believe that everyone, as many as possibly, in the world, can benefit from and be changed by love. When we contribute to such efforts it creates a better world for us to live in one person at a time.
This is the first time I have reached out for help in efforts like this. I have centered my life around helping others, and I have seen a tremendous impact made simply by showing people love and caring about their needs. I don't want this to be about me but to be about us. We definitely understand that everyone may not be able to give financially, but you can contribute in other ways! We would love it if you would help us spread the word about this campaign by reposting on Facebook, Instagram, Socialcam, Retweet on Twitter, other social networks, word of mouth, email, and etc! We want as many people as possible to know about how we can come together to make our communities, nation and world a more positive place one person at a time.
