As you know my 50th birthday is coming up very soon! I've had quite a few ask me what I would like for this milestone. Looking back at these past 50 years, I feel very blessed. God has blessed me with so much, and so I want to continue to be a blessing to others.
The purpose of this fund is to raise money for children and elders back in my homeland, Jamaica.
COVID-19 has affected many lives. Due to this pandemic, many families have lost their incomes, students are now having to learn from home, elders are without the bare necessities-- the list goes on.
Many children in my hometowns of St. Elizabeth and Westmoreland do not have access to education simply because they do not have access to the internet or learning support electronics, such as computers or tablets. This fund will go towards getting internet in the homes of several children. It will also help with fixing devices that have been donated to me.
In addition to the children, many elders have also been affected by the pandemic. Those who relied upon family and friends for food, clothing, and other necessities have less access now because their relatives are now also struggling economically.
I know what it is like to be in need growing up as a child. I also know how far a life can go with education and resources. Additionally, as someone that was also raised by a grandparent, I know how crucial elders are to the daily lives of families. So, this fund certainly hits home for me.
You may be wondering: What does this all have to do with my 50th birthday? Well-- instead of giving me a personal gift, I would greatly appreciate it if you donate to this fund. No matter how great or small, every little bit helps.
My birthday is November 8th, however, my goal is to raise $5,000 by December 8th. After all-- we all deserve to celebrate our birthdays all month, right?
Help me celebrate the blessing of my 50 years by being a blessing to a child or elder with your donation!
Thank you in advance.
God bless you all!
