EVENT: One Thing
EVENT DATE: Dec 25, 2015
There comes a certain point in your life when you realize that you have everything you need. I don't need more gadgets or clothes. But, I know that because you care, some of you amazing friends and family have been asking what is on my Christmas List.
There's only one thing. A warm bed.
There are a lot of folks in our city who sleep on sidewalks, under highways or in public parks. Since, I have everything I need - but I know you want to get me something meaningful - I'm going to ask you to give enough to provide one night of shelter for someone homeless in our community. A warm bed for a night costs about $40. That includes a shower and a hot meal. I appreciate the time you've taken to read my long description of this campaign. I hope you'll give to this fundraiser. It will mean the world to me. Thank you so much.
