To my cousin, Norman K. ~ We shared our birthday. "Normie" was a free spirit. When the road turned right, he went left. I looked up to him as the "coolest guy"! Life's circumstances led him unfairly down a path of self-destruction. Once employed and having his own apartment, only to find himself without work and eventually addicted to alcohol and homeless. Normie was a good person and I will always have a place in my heart for him. He died a homeless man and I still remain very saddened by this fact. Always remember this can happen to anyone at any time. Be humble. Be thankful.
Even though I can only help one person at a time, I dedicate his memory to every single person I help.
Shine on Norman, shine on!
Thanking all the friends that helped Feedoneperson.org reach new goals!! Thank you for your donations. I could not be more proud or thankful to call you a friend. Many homeless families will be helped this winter thanks to all of you.
I would like to dedicate this concept "Help One Person" to a young man, Andres D. "Dose". He is fighting for his life, for his sobriety. In his words, "I'm just a young man trying to do the right thing.....". Thank you so much for the beautiful picture, the "Wish Bear".
I am truly inspired by his dedication to care for his older brother who has schizophrenia. Fight on Andres, fight on....
I am sending a HUGE Thank You to all the teachers and para educators and professionals at my school in Brookfield, CT who generously donated to FeedOnePerson this year.
