I'm back to tell you about just how evident God's hand has been in this whole "starting a non-profit" endeavor.
The concept for Seeds For Change started at a coffee shop on a napkin. It was mapped out by my dad and his friend Joe as an idea. They wanted to see the at-risk youth of St. Louis Park have a place to go after school to get homework help, to play basketball, to be kids.
This idea has evolved and grown and become a real thing! We firmly believe that this was really God's idea from the beginning. He has blessed every step along the way.
An integral part of the process has been the involvement of Diem Design. Perry and his team at Diem have been incredibly generous with their time and resources. They created a beautiful website (which I'll be sharing with you soon!), invites for our fundraiser, hand outs, letter head, you name it! It's amazing how you so quickly identify with a logo. They created this for us:
God has provided in so many other ways as well. Joe has a contact that will be preforming at our fundraiser: Sheila Ray Charles, daughter of the late Ray Charles. Yep. I know. Cool right??
Also - the space and dinner for the fundraiser were DONATED to us. What?? Yes. Seriously.
It has been truly amazing to see God at work in and through this new organization that He obviously wants in existence. Please keep us in your prayers as we learn more about what it means to reach at-risk youth.
