Full Steam Ahead!

Thank you so much to the guys over at Geekadelphia for putting on a successful fundraiser. Thank you to XipWire for giving us a great new tool. We have a plan in place to go down to Louisiana with two new volunteers during the second week of July! With such a wonderful response, we can continue a very focused mission now. With your help we can bring down supplies including household supplies for families going through a very difficult transition. Remember, life as they know it has been changed forever. I am working with Arcadia University to discuss educational opportunities for young people. Restore The Gulf plans on helping families through the long waits for assistance with story time with the children, and finding out exactly what needs aren't being met, and making sure that people are not just a number. We want each and every person to be recognized for the individual they are and address their needs. We know that the mission is monumental but why not at least try? When we start with a few families, I believe that momentum will carry us onward. Faith helps me. You know, Henry Ford said, ‘Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.’ If I stopped, even for a moment to dwell on an obstacle, then I might as well give why bother? I discovered that taking a leap of faith is easy; for me, it just takes persistence and staying focused on the families that need support through this very difficult time. Thank you so much for the supplies and contributions. Thank you so much to the Pottstown Mercury as well. The mission continues on, and we look forward to sharing with you the news and progress that we plan on making in Louisiana. 

Much Love,
