No one has ever done this for us before. So we are SUPER excited.
Let me set the stage:
Each year, Spring Garden Waldorf School holds a Children’s Festival and Artist’s Market. (In full disclosure my kid goes to SGWS. It’s awesome. You should check it out too.)
It’s this super cool festival of really neat attractions and events for kids. We go every year.
Each year they donate $1 of the $3 admission price to a charity.
This year they are donating that dollar to US!!! We are super excited. In fact, we are going to have a table in the Artist’s Market. Some of our houseless (they prefer to be called houseless instead of homeless) residents at our Second Chance Village make items to sell.
The first step in solving the homeless epidemic is getting society to accept the houseless people of our country. We must acknowledge that they (and all of us) have a right to live and exist in our country. Only then can we help them overcome the issues these people face in their personal lives.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
— Proverbs 31:8-9
So, Spring Garden choosing us as the charity they are benefiting this year means a great deal to our particular charity. But it means even more to the entire houseless community of America. America is not a heartless country. Every part of our value system tells us to take care of the weakest among us. We all must stand with the weak and downtrodden.
Thank you Spring Garden for choosing us this year as the charity you are sponsoring. You are awesome!
And, seriously, if you have never gone to the Spring Garden Children’s Festival & Artist’s Market, take your kids. They will love it! It’s $3 per person to get in. And then you buy tickets for the events. It’s not a lot of money. But I just want you to know that’s how it’s setup.
