Inspiring (Hope) Today for individuals and families struggling to make ends meet.
GO FUND ME
After Hurricane Charlie in 2004, I didn't think it could happen, but it did. I wondered in the wilderness for years just like the Israelites.
Several times, I tried to start my life over. As time passed into years with several closed doors, I felt hopeless. The ever-ending rent fees accelerated eventually becoming impossible to recover and get ahead in life.
I know I'm not alone.
Since 2013, I conducted my home-office out of a little apartment providing spiritual inspiration penning books and self publishing. Providing blankets, clothing and feeding the homeless or less fortunate. From medical supplies to educational tools for children living in orphanages came out of my weekly paycheck. By 2018, Inspiring Today Ministries, Inc. (501C3) was finally established. This never ending outreach has increased because of natural disasters and now Covid-19 pandemic.
Meantime, I prayed for a special place where I can help others and give back to the community.
One Sunday afternoon I got in my car and drove for hours. I stumbled across this special place. This isn't a "brand-new" building or a fancy place. No. It's a place where inspiration can inspire others. Where community comes together. This special building was built in 1885 and registered as a historical building. In 2019, this building was renovated into a unique and charming venue. It has 14 foot ceilings, exposed rafters, new peaked frosted windows, covered ramp for the older generation. A place that as a child I always dreamed of owning one day.
What followed was perhaps one of the most cherished experiences of my life. That day, I met Mirus. I was able to share my story life and learn more about Mirus (The Owner). Mirus was setting up his photography studio to prepare for several little smiling faces to walk through those double doors. You see, Mirus used this building as a photography studio and rental hall. What Mirus thought would be another school year full of students was cancelled. Covid-19 covered those little smiles. I learned that Mircus was a very humble compassionate human being that gives his time, energy and heart into helping his community. If you know Mirus, you know about his larger than life heart giving to those around him. Caring for strangers, quietly serving. Giving the shirt off his back. However, his overwhelming debit caused him stress with health issues unable to provide for his own family. Mirus is in desperate need of being released from this property.
A friend suggested that I start this fundraiser for Mirus. I finally stepped in faith and out of my comfort zone reaching to you. I've created this go fund me page to help Mirus have his burdens lifted, providing a second chance in life and a place where Inspiring Today Ministries, Inc. can reach out to this community.
We’re raising funds to release Mirus, purchase and complete minor repairs, and eventually build Animal Therapy and Garden Center for the community in the courtyard. This property will be our pilot campus, and house Inspiring Today Ministries, Inc (non-profit 501C3/509C3). If for any reason, we're unable to purchase this property (if it's sold or taken off the market before we raise the funds we need), the funds raised by this campaign will still go directly toward providing community outreach/re-entry, medical ministry, spiritual inspiration, children and single moms in need.
Self-Sustaining: While initially our funding will be entirely donation-based, our model will grow to include sustainable sources of income so that we can invest strategically. A simple act of kindness, but can ripple out and create an ocean of prosperity in this world.
I know in my heart that today will be the beginning of something glorious, because it will start with the closing and opening of something divine.___________________________
We have started our seed funding--but we need your investment to get to $150,00 by November 30, 2020 to help Mirus and release him of thisproperty burden. Donations helps us budget wisely knowing how much money will be coming in. It's such an easy way to invest back into the community, complete renovation process and help others.
