Special Way to Help Homeless Kids

Every so often, something comes along that just touches a chord so deep, you KNOW you have to do something about it.  This is one of those times.

It’s obvious that times are getting tough for people all over.  You can hear it in the news, see it in people’s faces, and watch it in your own town.  If you’re as sensitive as I am, you can feel it in your heart.

But until I read the blog post where I’m going to send you in just a moment, I really didn’t know how bad it’s gotten for some of our most vulnerable people — teens who run away and become homeless. The numbers are stunning.  The suffering is unimaginable.

But it’s really not hopeless.  All it takes is a great idea — and a little help from your friends.

And by the way, sometimes your “friends” are people you will never even meet in your lifetime. . .

Here’s what I want you to do.  Visit the link I’m going to give you right below, read the blog post, click on the link to watch a short video (made by a really cute kid in Kansas City, whose heart is definitely in the right place) — and take action.

You could make a donation. (It’s tax deductible, if that ,matters to you.)  You could forward it to a friend or colleague (or two or three.)  You could do what I’m doing, by passing the word.

Start an initiative in your town.  Donate time to think through with the leaders in your community what you can do.  But please do something, besides just read the information.  Together we really can make a difference. We already are.

I don’t get anything out of this besides a good feeling, to know that what I’m doing right here at my keyboard is going to save some lives — and maybe turn a few around in the bargain.

Oh yeah.  Here’s the link:  Initiative To Help Homeless Kids .

Go there.  Take action.
