Pay it Forward

My FAVORITE charity 

Lunches of Love

I’ve had the pleasure of volunteering at this organization. It’s life changing. No person should go hungry. This organization makes sure that while not in school kids have a meal to look forward to.

About Them

Kids who depend on a nutritious breakfast and lunch each day at school are suddenly left wondering where their next meal is coming from during extended school holidays and during the weekend.

With your help, Lunches of Love is working hard to end the very real problem of childhood hunger in our community. June 2015, Lunches of Love distributed our MILLIONTH free lunch to children living in food insecure households. For More info

$50 will feed one child all summer long. To donate today

Happy New Year! Great idea on how to pay it forward. 

Perry Moore and his wife moved into their Kansas home in 1992. They have a robust family of twelve grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. The Moore’s love nothing more than seeing their young ones being able to play and have fun.

Unfortunately, because of his age and physical challenges, Perry has been unable to keep up with his yard. It became so overgrown that the children could not enjoy time outside. And without having an appropriate yard for those youngsters to expend their energy, what are great grandparents to do?

In an act of love, Perry’s neighbors decided to remedy the situation. Someone made a simple tweet online and it started the movement. The neighborly community organized a group effort that turned a Kansas jungle into a happy yard for all children to enjoy (free of thorns and woodland monsters). If there ever was an act of kindness proving the strength of a loving community, this is it!

Families come in all shapes and sizes but they must have unmet needs including but not limited to food, clothing, household items and gifts for their household on Christmas Day 2016. The family’s situation must be verifiable.  Any false, incomplete, or misrepresented information submitted will result in disqualification of the nomination.
