Since you asked "How can I help?" I am taking the liberty to direct you to CHOOSE TO CARE's work during lockdown. Visit us at (choosetocaresite.org) and read our blog "Housebound And Hard At Work" to learn about projects we have worked on and ways you can be of service to the youth in need.
We are forever grateful for any choice you make, every little bit counts.
- Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of the total cost of the goods you purchase to Choose To Care(CTC). Please register and choose the charity:CHOOSE TO CARE. There is nothing charged to you! This is the link:Smile.Amazon.com/ch/35-2309289.
- Because of the Pandemic, we had to cancel our Annual Fundraising event that was set for April 2020. We have set-up a GoFundMY Charity. This is the link:https//charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/choose-to-cares-fighting-chance-benefit. Any amount is of value!
- I have created an online charity store that I have named BLOSSOM, the message to the youth "keep blooming" It is housed in another store, Jamboree Couture. Right now it displays afrocentric goods that I purchased on my visit to Tanzania, last year. These goods were made by women of the Masai tribe and the purchases provided a small income for the women and their families. My plan is to purchase bits and pieces from groups who are struggling but have used their hands and skills to make eye catching goods. Take a look, you may see something you like, if not for yourself, a gift for that special person. 100% of the purchases will be used for CTC and other youth oriented or environmentally friendly programs/projects.
