Can you imagine what it would be like to be homeless in February?! On February 15th, I will be cycling on a spin-bike, outdoors in the middle of winter, to raise money for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Boston. It will be a reminder that spending just one hour out in the cold, rain, or snow is nothing compared to living without the comforts of a home.
Help me reach my goal of $350 by making a donation to my page here www.crowdrise.com/ericaporter03 - where all proceeds will benefit HomeStart, Inc., a nonprofit committed to ending and preventing homelessness in Greater Boston. (It costs HomeStart $700 to prevent a family from homelessness & $1,030 to move a family out of a shelter and into a permanent home. So for every $1,030.00 we raise, you will be part of the reason a family is no longer homeless!)
Last year over 250 riders raised over $180,000.00, which made a tremendous impact in the lives of those HomeStart serves – the Ropes & Gray Team is hoping to make a huge dent in this year’s fundraising effort!
