Hi Friends!!!! YOU MADE IT TO MY PAGE!!!! =D
This first bit is not scripted, it comes from my heart. I'm reaching out to you during one of the best times of the year! The time where we celebrate EXTRA what we get to enjoy every day; our loved ones and the food that fills our bellies.
This year I will be spending my Thanksgiving in NYC as flights back to MT are expensive. Since I won't get to be with my family, I want to give my time so that others can enjoy this season of thankfulness in a very fulfilling way!!! That is why I have decided I will be volunteering on Tuesday November 21st for the FeedingNYC Organization. They're mission during this time of year is to feed families in NYC who cannot afford to give themselves and their families a traditional Thanksgiving meal. I will be volunteering to help pack the meals and deliver them to the families around the city.
I'm asking you to be apart of this organization and my volunteerism by considering a small donation. The Holidays are a time to celebrate the warmth and love of family and blessings and you could help me give that to others today! If you are interested in blessing a family in NYC, you can donate $35 and impact one family! Or you can give an amount that suits your budget. Any amount is an impact! Learn more below...
Here is more info about FeedingNYC...
"As a grass roots organization, we rely on the generosity of people like you. Support FeedingNYCs efforts by adopting a Manhattan Mini Storage box filled with a full Thanksgiving meal to be given to one of NYC's families in need. Each box is $35, but every donation, in any amount, can make all the difference. Join our 400+ volunteers on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, as we pack up and deliver thousands of meals to families in shelters across the city. Since 2001, with help from volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors, FeedingNYC has delivered over 50,000 Thanksgiving meals. Your contributions directly impact families and ensure that FeedingNYC can continue to bring hope and smiles to many more families each year."
Another Shelby plug...
The attached video addresses an issue that is very close to my heart. I want to RAISE AWARENESS about the global disaster known as MODERN DAY SLAVERY, aka Human Traffcking. Not only do I desire to just love on people of NYC who need extra care this Thanksgiving but I want to exploit those who are playing a willing role in keeping human trafficking a thriving criminal activity in NYC and our global community. The more we talk about it / the more awareness we raise, the more opportunity to end this tragic act. I urge you to watch the attached video and learn how you can recognize signs of human trafficking and the immediate steps you can take to save victims and alert authorities no matter where you are; small town or big city.
Thank you so much for considering giving to my efforts here in NYC this Thanksgiving. I am thankful for the computer I had to write this memo on to sign up for this organizaiton. I pray that you might consider giving something as small as $35 today to provide a meal to a family who can't make it happen for themselves this year. I hope YOU and YOUR FAMILY have a BLESSED and warm Thanksgiving!!
