This lady, her story and those of her children are the reason we developed our plan to rehouse the 1.46-million families who now find themselves in this unjust position.
The plan will revive foreclosed homes and give every homeless parent with young children a new roof and the chance to build a far better future.
There will be no cost to the families, the shelters or anyone else.
If you know a family in need, or a friend who works at a Shelter, please pass the word. If we can support from the shelters, we’re ready to start…
Interviewed: March, 2013, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA
Name: Susan J.
Where are you originally from? I was born and raised in East Boston, MA, and I have lived with my family in Cambridge for the last 20 years. My husband is from Cambridge so we decided to raise our three sons here. My family is myself, my husband, and our three sons (two of which are under 18 years old). The oldest is 26 years old and he has developmental issues.
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…
