Better Meals in Madagascar
In Madagascar, half of all children are undernourished. That means 50% of kids won’t grow to reach their full potential. But communities are changing this by focusing on improving health and nutrition. What role has food played in your life? How can you help those who lack access to enough nutritious food.

Raisin the Rent
We can’t get together in person as we have in past years to support St. John Center in its effort to offer the resources needed … finding housing, shelter and social services … so I am one of many hosting an on-line fundraiser to support St. John Center’s annual fund raising event, Raisin’ the Rent
I have been supporting St. John Center for over 10 years, providing IT Services, along with three others. Our mission is to make sure the counselors and staff have technical services that enable them to efficiently do their jobs of serving homeless clients. Functional PC’s, Laptops, Printers, Desk Phones, Cell Phones, Internet access, WiFi access, Email, resetting forgotten passwords, assistance with the inevitable questions that arise in the technical world are all part of our gig. I hope you will help me meet my fundraising goal of $5,000.00 by visiting my Web Page at:
https://secure.qgiv.com/event/raisin-the-rent-house-parties/account/1059624/ where you can make a Donation, buy a Raffle Ticket or bid on a Silent Auction item. You can learn more about St. John Center and various ways you can support the mission at https://www.stjohncenter.org/.
The live streamed Raisin’ the Rent event will be at 7:30 pm on March 6.
