27 years ago my phenomenal friend Melissa started a charity called Toys of hope. It is 100 percent non profit and every dollar or gift raised goes directly to those in need. Her and her loyal team have been working to enhance our most needy citizens on Long Island for almost 3 decades!!!!! Very recently the nucleus of their charity, their van , was in a car accident. Because of its age and mileage the insurance company wants to total it and give them virtually nothing!!!!!! But that van is priceless to them because it is the all important link between the charity and the ability to mobilize necessary survival items and gifts to families that would literally have nothing without toys of hopes sorely needed assistance!!!!!! At this point, we are trying to raise money for a pre owned box truck so that goods can be delivered. Melissa is in tears because she simply can not operate her charity without a working delivery vehicle. And the timing could not be worse during the holidays.
As always , I put my own money and heart where my mouth is whenever I ask my Facebook friends for fund raising assistance. I will be kicking this off with $1,000. Please give literally any amount and share this like crazy as a miracle is needed to re mobilize Melissa’s charity!!!
