Stop all Hunger
As many of you know my daughter recently told me that she has a classmate that is homeless. Hearing the conditions this little guy has to deal with day in and day out is heartbreaking. After talking to her teacher about this she told me there is another kid in the classroom next to her's that is also homeless.
This has sparked a fire in me to do what I can to make a major change in not only this child's life but in as many children's lives that are affected by homelessness, hunger, and poverty in our community.
For one minute I want you to think about your own kids, your friend's kids, kids you've coached, kids you've talked to that have left an impression in your life along the way.
Imagine those same kids going through their school day, playing, smiling, learning, and doing their best to be a kid while their stomach growls, while they wonder where their mom will park the car tonight for them to sleep and hopefully be safe, while they wonder if they'll have dinner tonight or during the weekend.
What makes that kid different from your kid or whatever kid you thought about a few seconds ago? Bad luck! That is it. No child has asked to be put into that situation nor have they done anything to be there. It does not matter what their parents did or didn't do to be in this situation. All that matters is that they are in the siatuation and as a kid there is nobody that will help them out if we don't come together as a community and help them out ourselves.
With your financial assitance I will do all I can to make sure that as many children in our local community have something to eat each and every night.
I have big goals and it is going to take a village to achieve them but I promise you that they will be accomplished. We will all make a difference in these family's lives day in and day out.
Please donate $5.00 or more if you can, share this to your social and professional networks, and ask them to kindly donate as well. Through the power of social media and using our networks we can make a difference and help someone who may have otherwise been forgotten and left to go hungry another day.
Thank you in advance!

Twas the night before the lay off and I haven’t slept a wink. Although it may sound crazy it’s not for the reasons that you may think. As I sit up tonight and ponder my next move, so many thoughts go through my mind as I wonder what I am going to do. It’s 21 days before Christmas. Will the kids still get all that they want? Many presents promised with a budget in mind now the budget is changing but how do you explain that to their young innocent minds? While this is something to ponder and I could sit here and worry, that wouldn’t be me and it’s not the way I want to write my story. I have an amazing support system on my side. A girlfriend who loves me unconditionally and amazing daughters that can put a smile on my face no matter what the situation. I’ve never really been in a situation like this and not really sure what is next for me. What I do know is that I am going to make the absolute most of this and turn this into a positive. A positive for me through serving others.
Feelings of excitement race through my mind. This is an opportunity to really do good for others, a true opportunity to be kind. I am extremely fortunate and have been blessed with an amazing life. While I am facing this hurdle it is not going to bring me down. I see this as an opportunity do all I can to raise as many funds as possible and make Christmas a possibility for many other families who have to ponder these same thoughts I am pondering year after year. You see, there are two ways to face times like this. You can worry yourself to the point of breaking or you can look for the opportunity. The good. The silver lining in the clouds. The blessing in disguise or whatever other phrase you want to use. That’s the path I am taking. I am going to take this opportunity to help others. An opportunity to use my Go Fund Me page to fundraise, purchase goods and gifts for the homeless and underserved. To put smiles on the faces of as many people as possible while hopefully taking some stress off of some parents who are doing all they can for their families but still do not have enough to make ends meet. I don’t want to just help a few. I want to help MANY!
If you’re reading this I am asking that you please share it. Donate. And please encourage your connections to donate and share it as well. Let’s make this go viral so not one child will have to go without a gift. Pipe dream? Maybe. Possible? Definitely! It is going to take action though. Click on the link, http://www.gofundme.com/bazfxc, donate, and share it with others. I will continue to post updates as the donations come in. When gifts are given out or homeless are helped out you will get to share in the experience and know that you played a role. Please don’t just read this and continue to scroll. A couple of dollars and a share is all that I ask for. If you’re reading this, YOU can make a difference.
Thank you in advance and God Bless.
