I was inspired to start this campaign when I saw this page on Instagram : murphslife helping families throughout Paraguay. It really touched my heart to see how one person was able to collect enough donations to help countless familes, pay for their housing, pay for food, give them the basic necessities and the resources to run a business so that they could sustain themselves.
I live in Atlanta and homelessness is a big struggle in the downtown area. I know of a few shelters who will privide them with meals or maybe a place to use the bathroom, but they don't give them an opportunity to get up off the streets. Alot of times when you go to apply for job, they ask for your address and phone number. But if your homeless, you probably have none of that. I appreciate the organizations that are in place to provide assistance temporarily but it is necessary to provide further support to help them progress and move forward in life.
My goal is to be that next step for those that I can get in contact with and just bless their lives with whatever they need.
