Won't you please support homeless and profoundly poor babies and their families?

LIVINGSTON PHILANTHROPIES, INC. (LPI) announces our first VEHICLE FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE!  For 8 successful years of giving, tens- of-thousands of pounds of family-oriented deliveries have been made with PERSONAL VEHICLES to provide for Newark, NJ’s homeless and profoundly poor.  Now, commencing our 9th year of operation, with 13,000 warm coats (39,000 lbs.), thousands of pounds of family clothing, men's dress attire, shoes, socks, toiletries, cosmetics, diapers, women's products and more delivered to our Newark distribution partners with our private, volunteer vehicles, we are way overdue to fundraise for a small van.    

LPI requests your financial support over the next 45 days, as we need to purchase a small van prior to the holidays (our extremely busy season) to continue even current levels of giving to those who have literally zero, our very poorest.  If you are in position to step-up a with a tax-deductible contribution, your individual donation will make a huge difference. 

IMPORTANT TO KNOW:  LPI is a 100% volunteer organization, so 100% of your generous help is allocated to charity…we have virtually no overhead!  The small van will pick-up from well-to-do donors, and immediately delivered to the “poor, homeless & disenfranchised.”  Exactly what our stalwart volunteers have done with personal vehicles since 2011.

Special thanks from our “SpokesBaby,” Amena, who is our cover photo.  Yup, she and  her sister Amora are homeless on a food line in the winter.  We know them from numerous visits.
