Your donation matched up to $8,OOO! An anonymous donor will match your donation up to $8,OOO!

This means whatever you give toward helping this homeless family will be doubled. $10 turns into $20! $25 turns into $50! $50 turns into $100! Whatever you give will be multiplied times 2!

This matching grant is an incredible opportunity to increase the financial impact of your gift… and more… it speaks to the unfurling character of compassion: love is not who we are on our own, it creates the heart of who we are together.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. I would rather make mistakes in kindness and compassion than work miracles in unkindness and hardness.” ― Mother Teresa

“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Please consider helping Chris and her children.
Thank you!

Raised $3,313.00 toward helping this family have better living conditions!

Simple kindnesses are never wasted: an encouraging word, a door held open, a stranger’s smile, a cup of water; modest gifts of mercy fall like seeds of hope into the dark places. Watered together with compassion, they sprout life.

Fact: a tender shoot can push its way up through rock.

More is going on here than fundraising for better living conditions. With each gift, a mother and her children are being told that they matter. They are being gifted with language to help them imagine beyond the asphalt of dire circumstance that is paved above their heads. Their hearts are being strengthened to press on for one more day.

Fact: hope is propelling them into the sun.

Will you please consider strengthening their hope with a monetary gift? Or will you please consider watering the selfless gifts of others with prayers of compassion? Or will you please consider sharing our efforts with your family and friends?

For those of you who have already blessed this family with gifts, or with faith’s watery way, or by sharing their story with others, we extend our deepest gratitude. Thank you. Ann, Ivan, Hannah, and Isaiah.
