The Spirit of the Holiday Season is beginning to move in the hearts of everyone, however, some are more sensitive to the subtlety of spirit than others. For many it is a Season to buy Christmas presents for loved ones and a rush toward advertised bargains of “Black Friday.” For some without a job, or, the working poor, it brings despair knowing that buying Christmas presents for their children is not an option, and even worse, an inability to meet December’s rent. The real estate market in California is booming being fueled by investors hiding behind LLCs surged by the huge inventory of foreclosed homes. NPR has reported that many of the major banks that foreclosed on the homes have formed LLC’s to buy the real estate up at bargain prices to maintain anonymity. This has caused rents to rise, and evictions to soar. Out of compassion to those single parent families facing eviction because of an inability to meet the recent rent hikes, the Holiday Project is an effort to help. Through the twice monthly “Feeding of the Famished” program the meditation partners have become painfully aware that it is not only the homeless that go hungry, in fact, most homeless are well fed through many churches who daily serve meals. Our attention has been directed toward single parent families and the working poor
Food stamp cuts have left many families without funds for a proper Thanksgiving. To help, the Holiday Project was started to help families in need. General Relief doesn't pay even half the rent for most California families. The Holiday Project is an attempt to help pay December's rent and Christmas presents for children of single parent families wherein the head of household is unemployed due to no fault of their own. Help keep families from being evicted this holiday season by gifting $ 5.00 or $ 10.00 or even $ 1.00 to the fund. These small gifts will not do much to alleviate the problem if given individually, but when combined, they will do a lot. If 10 people gift $ 10.00, then that $ 100.00 may be what a family is short on December's rent and can save a family from eviction.
There is the advantage of the Holiday Project, one donation of $ 1.00 by a hundred people can make a difference. When that one dollar is given individually what can it do? Buy a soda? Therefore, I'm using my influence and ability to gather support from many people to multiply one dollar gifts so that a real effect may be felt.
If one cannot personally help then gift money to those to do it on one's behalf.
Please help fund Holiday Project to keep local families from eviction by helping with December's rent, Christmas presents, and Thanksgiving. Many have not recovered from the great recession, and temporary benefits have been cut. Give to the Holiday Project fund if able via Pay Pal.
