SUBZERO SLEEPING BAGS

$625 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 9 people in 34 months
Elizabeth Kurtz   YPSILANTI, MI


You have no idea how blessed you are if you are sleeping inside a warm home this winter. I want to provide subzero sleeping bags to anyone forced to sleep outside so that a little of that warmth reaches them too. Thanks!



Nothing in my middle-class upbringing would have prepared me to have to spend three nights sleeping on the ground on a cold fall night. But it happened, and after the third night, I got up determined that no person would sleep outside again without adequate warmth. It is my goal to provide anyone in Washtenaw County a subzero sleeping bag and a set of thermals to get through this winter.

Please help me in this endeavor.

And I thank you very much!

Do I hear $7.00?

These are a great alternative or maybe even an addition to subzero bags. These thermal blankets are at a reduced price on Amazon.

One of our supporters emailed the link so you can check it out.

Even a $7.00 donation would make a difference right now!

Thanks

I used to think I was a good communicator, but somehow I can't communicate the urgency of providing subzero sleeping bags during this frigid weather to those who are sleeping outside. Giving up two cups of Starbucks coffee and instead making it in your warm home, might make a huge difference to the brother or sister sleeping outside this winter!

Getting half way to the goal will make someone's winter warmer. Until weather amnesty becomes a reality at the AA Shelter people will still be forced outside during the coldest months of the year. Many are sleeping outside now! Thanks for any support!

This is a cause that I support and hope that we can help Washtenaw County residents. Please any amount of donation can and will help. one dollar, five dollars, or a couple hundred anything will help. The amount of homeless people in Washtenaw County alone is staggering. If you were thinking of donating during this Holiday season, why not make it here in your own back yard, so to speak..Thank you to anyone whom is willing and able to help out. Much Love.
