48 hr Update: A dozen people have donated a total of $631.50! We're 40% to the goal of $1600. Please keep sharing and pls keep giving. Let's show the youth here that we love them and care deeply for their well-being. <3
24 hr Update: It's been almost 24 hours since the fundraiser began and, so far, 7 people have donated a total of $453.25! That's a great start toward my $1600. goal this year, but we need more than 7 people to step up for our youth! Can you donate what you'll spend at your favorite coffee shop today to help support street kids who are trying to improve their lives? Pls consider it. The money raised will likely last all year and goes to things like--winter wear, blankets, tents, sleeping bags, skateboards (totally legitimate, environmentally friendly means of transportation!), books, phones (for kids actively looking for employment), clothing, bus tickets, replacement ID's, household items for when they get their 1st apt/room..

And make a donation to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you'd rather offer gift cards, that's awesome! I'll PM you my address.
If you rather meet a youth and take them shopping for their needs, i will be thrilled to arrange that!
If you can only spare $5.00, I know what that's like! and I will put it to good use.
I have been so honored to be street mom for hundreds of youth over the last decade. It's been the most important thing I've ever done in my life. And I have been so blessed by the kid's presence in my life.
Thank you for supporting these amazing and worthy young members of our Family. <3
