July Raffle Winner & Half Way to the Marathon
August 05, 2017
BENEFITING: Cornerstone Community Outreach
ORGANIZER: Cornerstone Community Outreach
I am once again running the Chicago Marathon. This year I have decided to support Team CCO by raising funds for them.
Cornerstone Community Outreach is a Chicago based social service agency that provides shelter to families and individuals, over 330 people each night! This is both homeless families with children, and single adults.Not only do they not have to sleep outside, they get nutritious meals, case management support, clothing, employment, education and every support available to them so that they can focus on what they need to do to get housed. A donation of $4 from you, will provide one night of shelter. How? The cost per night for shelter is only $20. Grants that are awarded to Cornerstone will cover the other $16 per night. So with your gift of $4 per night, someone can receive shelter and these amazing services.
So a donation of $10 will provide shelter for 2 people. A donation of $20 will help 5 people; $50 will help 12 people; and $100 will help 25 people. Obviously the more you give the more people you help. But it all starts with a donation of just $4.
But wait...there's more. Every person who donates in the month of July will be entered into a raffle for one of my handmade monsters or animals. Don't know what I'm talking about? Take a look through the photos above, there are some examples of my creations.
thank you for considering this charity.
