We need your help to change the world!!!!
My name is Jason and I work with Ron Ron and kids like him every single week with a non profit I founded, Purpose Inc. We are a 501c3 from Louisville, KY dedicated to help kids find their purpose.

Recently I took a picture of Ron Ron, a 14 year old from our West Louisville, KY PURP TEAM who gave his shoes off of his feet to a homeless man! The picture went viral overnight reaching over a million people, including CNN, ABC, CBS, and many other news networks.

This is normal everyday life for our kids in the inner city. Our team of youth does outreach across the city and this movement has become so popular that recently other cities, churches, and schools have started PURP Teams. PURP is short for purpose and also is an acronym for People Uplifting Real People. We are located at True Believers in Christ Church in Louisville, KY. We have PURP Teams in Louisville and Cincinnati! Please consider donating today to support this movement! With your help we can support kids like Ron Ron and other kids by purchasing a van to help them do outreach. We don't have a van and with your support we can get supplies to help kids find their purpose. Donate today and we will get Ron Ron his new pair of shoes and any other money will go 100% to kids doing outreach in the community. Let's show Ron Ron that something big can come from something small.

Ron, Ron, Welcome to the community of people who care more about others than themselves--you show true maturity!!! I hope you eventually have all of the Nikes you can stand!!! You are inspiration to many others. by contrast, i work with a 19 year old young man, I am over six feet, yet that guy could probably crush me like a bug. He is angry, a user, and recently was assigned to a hospital DOU--direct observation unit. See, his anger (because of his crummy past), just overwhelmed him, so he escaped into "pills". So many his 230 pound frame was overloaded and he OD'd. Ron, Ron, I believe we do not have to be concerned about you. Why?? because you are growing up, showing your heart, giving of yourself, not holding back--and with bravery. Look forward to good life young man, stay positive, do good things!! You will be blessed beyond measure. Way cool!!!

Our church's pre-teen ministry was encouraged by Ron Ron's story as we learn about God's mercy and compassion. Thank you for sharing this story and for serving the communities that are in need. May the Lord bless your every step as you continue to serve His Kingdom. May the Holy Spirit give you strength and power as you continue to live out the gospel. In Jesus name, amen!

To give someone the shoes off your feet is such a beautiful thing. God bless that young man and this organization.
