We have a project to rehouse homeless children, at no cost to their parents, the Shelters or anyone else. For the last 8-months we have searched for the seed funds to make this a reality and we found nothing but unbending disinterest and attempts at ID fraud.
We are not willing to let these children go on suffering, so we’re now prepping a Crowdfunding plan to raise the seed funds ourselves.
The project can house as many people as might need the chance, so if you know a family in need please give them this link. We launch in ten days.
With your help, the first clients would be in their new houses by June :)
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (Food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps?
Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tin foil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps?Food!
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in-line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a Birthday cake??
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use them. And Fox News wouldn’t recognize truth or facts if they came with validated ID.
As you know, we’ve been trying to find a partner for the homeless children project for over six months. We’ve just been let down by yet another candidate who claimed they had both the money and the interest…then made excuses and disappeared.
Every day we waste searching for the means, 2.7-million children remain marooned in the shelters, from which they have little chance of a short-term escape. The project will give them both an exit, and a good education, so we can’t waste any more time.
We’re now going to create the seed funds through a Crowdfunding campaign. But here’s the snag: We’ve never done one before.
If anyone has, or knows a friend, we’d love to meet them. We especially need help with the social media aspect. That’s a crucial element, so we can’t risk mistakes.
If you know how to handle Facebook, Twitter and so on, or know someone who does, leave a comment and we’ll get back to you quick.
We just learned that one of the few people who always believed in our homeless children project, Trevor Vonk, died of a heart attack last night. He was just 57.
Trevor was a true friend with a great sense of humour who could get along with anyone; He also knew more details about more Hollywood movies than anyone else we’ve even heard of. He was going to join the project as CFO when we begin operations next month. Replacing him will be next to impossible.
Good night, dear friend. You will be missed and remembered…

The death toll from the massive typhoon that hit the Philippines is likely to be 2,000 or 2,500 people, not the previously reported figure of 10,000, President Benigno Aquino told CNN in an interview on Tuesday.
"The figure right now I have is about 2,000, but this might still get higher," Aquino told CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour in an interview was posted on CNN’s website. "Ten thousand, I think, is too much," he told CNN. "There was emotional drama involved with that particular estimate."

In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded in more than 100-years, killing over 10,000 in one town alone, with thousands more rendered homeless. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”
To all our friends and family in the Philippines, our hearts and thoughts are with you — and we want to make sure you’re aware of the online resources to find loved ones or request rescue.
