POTLUCK NOT POVERTY PROJECT

Hello friends. 

This summer, I would like to do a big service project where I serve the homeless of Philadelphia with a  variety of homecooked meals. However, due to economic instability, I do not have the funds to make this project come to life on my own. 

I ask that all who can, please donate the lowest amount if possible. Being formerly homeless, twice, brings me a lot of memories of wondering what support was available for me, which is why I am really adamant on completing this project. 

ALL PROCEEDS ARE GOING TO FOOD AND SUPPLIES FOR BRINGING THIS PROJECT TO LIFE. NONE of this money will benefit me. If you cannot support financially, please support by sharing and increasing the chances of gaining financial support from others. 

I thank you all in advance and hope that this project can come to fulfillment.
