When I first heard about Project Lead Kindly and their mission to help homeless women who had been victims of domestic violence, there was something in my heart that said I needed to do something to help Pam Macdonald and her husband with this mission they’ve set out.
During its initiation stage, I reached out and donated to the cause by purchasing a T-shirt for my little guy. He loved it, and I did too because of the beautiful message behind it.
As bloggers, we use a lot of words. We have realized that WORDS are POWERFUL and we have decided to use our words for good and spread a message about a great cause.
Project Lead Kindly is a nonprofit organization that assists mothers and children affected by domestic violence and homelessness. They are also on a mission to encourage, inspire, and remind everyone that we ALL have the potential to serve and “lead kindly,” no matter our circumstances.
Each year, Project Lead Kindly provides a BIG service project to the community. Last year, they organized a children’s book drive.This year, we are raising money for Project Lead Kindly’s 2016 Pregnancy Shelter Hop. We will be assisting 5 different shelters throughout California that house homeless, pregnant mothers and their children. We will be donating newborn necessities to:Harvest Home, Precious Life Shelter, Casa Teresa, Angels Way Maternity Home, and Elizabeth House. We will also be throwing two events to assist the mothers serviced by Elizabeth House & Angels Way Maternity Home.
How you can help!
While the events are local to California, we wanted to find some way for the amazingly supportive online community to help out! We’ve set up a GoFundMe with a goal to raise $1000 for Project Lead Kindly:
All funds donated will go to Project Lead Kindly and help:
1) provide these necessary items for the mothers and their babies at all 5 shelters;
2) throw the events for the mothers from Elizabeth House & Angels Way;
3) help spread the Lead Kindly message (the reminder that ALL have the potential to do good and to be an example to others, no matter what trials they face; and
4) to these women who need to be encouraged and reminded of their worth and potential and that they are cared for!
Please consider donating even $1 to the cause. Every little bit helps. In addition to donating, if you want to share the cause with us, please:
1) take the image below
2) share it in your own blog post and social media
3) encourage others to join our initiative & donate!
And if you don’t have a blog, but simply want to share the cause, we encourage you to take the image & share it on social media! We have a goal of $1000, and if we all use our words together, we can reach it!
We also wanted to include a fun giveaway as a thank you for your support! This giveaway is sponsored by the bloggers and not Project Lead Kindly directly.
