Friends, these are difficult times. The worst of times for some. There is a family with good hearts looking forward to the holiday time ahead. But for them, the coming Christmas looks a little sparse.
They are neighbors, good people, who have fallen on hard times but haven't fallen down low enough (i.e. "lost everything") to qualify for free government relief and church-related hand-outs. They're on the edge of the abyss.
I'd like to raise anywhere from $300 to $500 - I know they'll appreciate whatever amount comes in. While it may not seem like much, it can help with holiday groceries and a few presents!
If you'd like to help, any amount you can give by clicking on the gold "Donate" button under the masthead to the right of Google Ads on the sidebar of this blog will be appreciated. (Right now, taht account is totally EMPTY - so every penny that goes in between now and noon New York time on Christmas Eve will be given to the needy family.) No amount is too small, but let's keep the minimum at USD $2, okay? THANK-YOU and Peaceful Blessings!
