My goal is to help 1000 Michigan waiters/waitresses that by no fault of their own find themselves scrambling to make ends meet.
Last night when I heard the news that restaurants would be closed for another four weeks (on top of the already 4+ weeks they’ve already been shut down this time around) I was sickened and extremely heartbroken.
Because of our busy lifestyle we frequent a lot of local restaurants from Mid to Northern Michigan and because of that we’ve gotten to know a lot of the waiters and waitresses that have become friends.
Let me tell you these folks are being financially crushed!!!
I have heard the stories, seen the tears and felt their pain. At this point doing nothing IS NOT an option!
We may not be able to control the Governor or the Health Department, but we most certainly can control whether or not we do something to help those in need.
Listen, I have been toiling with this all night because the number God put on my heart was so large that it honestly gave me a belly ache but after spending hours trying to beat this number into something more manageable, I realized, I would rather have an upset stomach caused by uncertainty for a moment than a calloused heart or guilty conscience for the long haul so out of obedience, me and my wife donated the first $250,000 toward the goal set.
There are single mothers in tears right now over what to do for Christmas... they are at a loss of words trying to explain to their children the reasons “why” this is happening to them.
Please consider helping me reach or possibly blowing this goal out of the water so we can make a difference in the lives of so many that are used to being the ones serving us.
We will be getting the word out via social media, direct contact with the food and beverage industry associations, local chambers and word of mouth to begin giving out Five Hundred Dollar “tips” to those wait staff we find affected by these State mandated shutdowns.
