As you may know, I am with Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH) this year. Around the holiday season CCEH has a fundraiser dedicated to help families and children not only avoid becoming homeless, but give to those who are. For every $25 you donate to the be homeful project, our partners, the CT REALTORS® Foundation and Citizens Bank, will gift a Paddington™ plush bear, book, or blankie to a child in shelter in your honor. The additional funds raised provide emergency assistance to help children in CT stay in the comfort of home.
Homelessness hits home for me, especially during the holidays. Last year I was blessed with a home that I share with my sister and I cant help but think of those who are not as fortunate. I especially think of the children suffering through the holiday season with no place to call home. Donating to this fundraiser might just give a child and family in need a glimmer of hope that a home for them is right around the corner.
Thank you to all of those who donate and give a little something!
