Dave and I have been busy little beavers with a few things. One of them being a brand-spanking new non-profit that we are helping to start. It's really the brain child of my dad and a friend of his, but Dave is on the board and I've been doing some of the administrative work to get it off the ground.
It's called Seeds for Change and we are SUPER excited about it!!
The organization is going to encompass a few different things, but the main project is an after school program for at-risk youth.
Here's a little blurb from our hand out
"Seeds For Change is a non-profit organization committed to help change the lives of youth by helping them face difficult life situations. Many kids find themselves on the streets after school, and end up engaging in destructive behavior, crime, and other negative activities. Seeds For Change seeks to change the negative direction of these youth’s lives and provides support in the areas of education, social and interpersonal relationships, character development, and preparation for life after high school."
Sounds cool right??
Our big fundraiser will be November 11th and tickets are just $30. There will be a silent auction and Sheila Raye Charles (daughter of Ray Charles) will be preforming. Let me know if you are interested in coming!
The website is not quite finished yet, but check us out on facebook in the meantime.
I'll be back soon to tell you about how God has orchestrated this whole thing into being and all the amazing things that have been happening!
