Give so that others may receive - Healthcare for the Homeless #TwiveBmore
I don’t do this often, but I’d love your help with a national daylong fundraising competition I’m working on to support Healthcare for the Homeless, a Baltimore nonprofit that provides health-related services, education, and advocacy to reduce the incidence and burdens of homelessness.
On any given night, 4,000 Baltimoreans sleep either outside or at a shelter, and it is estimated as many as 40,000 will experience homelessness at some point this year. This issue is near & dear to my heart as I interact with so many homeless individuals at the library. Recently, we found out that one of our regulars died of a heart attack while sleeping in the bus shelter in front of the library. Had she had better access to healthcare her death may have been avoided. This is the exact situation that Healthcare for the Homeless is working towards preventing!
Here’s how you can help:
- Make a donation NOW. The competition is only today, there’s no time to procrastinate! http://twive.razoo.com/story/Healthcarefundedbybaltimore
