It has been awhile since we have updated everyone on our status. We are waiting on a few things to happen. A possible brick and mortar opportunity and a 4 week challenge for a grant with bonuses to win every week. Yes, it is as it sounds...we are competing for a grant with a community thrives USA TODAY. A link is provided in this post in case that anyone wishes to join us in our challenge to raise at least $3,000 to be in the running for a grant. This grant will allow us to move forward with our plans to get into a temporary location and begin helping people sooner. Right now, to meet up with the people who we have been helping has been challenging, but we have worked with a few restaurants in the local area that have hosted out meetings. When we meet, we are simply eating together and get to have an opportunity to for a little community to give each other support.
The big topic of this post though is this challenge we are in right now. This is the first opportunity we have had to even have a go at a grant but we will need all the help we can get. Even $10 donations are helpful at this point. This weeks challenge is to be the top 5 fundraisers in the tier 1. I will keep everyone updated probably on Mondays to let you all know what the challenge for the week is. If we are going to have any chance at all for this, we are going to need the ED community to help us. Parents, Grandparents, and those that have wanted support while they were going through recovery but didn't have something like this to help them.
Here is the link to the page for us.
Thank you in advance to all who are planning to help us get through the next 4 weeks!
