BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Katie, Jimmy and their two little ones on their new home! Because of you, our supporters, they are no longer "Almost Home", they ARE home!
Earlier today, I had the honor of witnessing one of the most beautiful acts of kindness..This man never met this family, didn't really know their story, but t...rusted me enough to donate them a much, much needed vehicle. Isn't that amazing?? And because of YOU and your generous donations, we were able to give them $478 towards transfer.
Why? It's very simple. Because EVERYONE needs help sometimes.
BIG THANKS to Julianna Grover and her beautiful team from the Train Station for donating all that you see here for our upcoming haircutting event. From what I understand, they held a drive in exchange for meal plans and fantasy training points. Isn't this amazing? Once again, I am completely blown away by the generosity of our community. Together we will do GREAT things, my friends!
Many thanks to Adrian Galvan, Sarah's husband, who made us a "Blessing Box" which is now up, running, and ready for business!!
The concept is simply this: Take what you need, and leave what you can.
New items will be added daily, so if you don't see what you like/need today, please come back tomorrow!
The Blessing Box is located at 8757 S. Kolmar in Hometown.
Together we will do GREAT things, my friends!
Such a great night, and so many beautiful hearts to thank.
First and Foremost,
THANK YOU to all of our guests who came out and spent their evening with us!! Without your support we could not do what we are doing! We hope you enjoyed the night as much as we did!!
THANK YOU to the gracious Meg'n and Tranquility Hair Salon for opening the doors of your absolutely gorgeous space for the night. It was the perfect fit for the theme of the evening.
THANK YOU to all of the local artists and businesses that donated to the silent auction. Especially, The Salvage Bee, Running Dog Pottery, Beverly Records, Julia Marbach Designs, Sweet Melissa's Catering Co., and Cera & Lore!!! (Stay tuned for a special feature highlighting all of our amazing Contributors!!)
THANK YOU to all of the folks that couldn't attend, but gave a monetary donation.
And most of all, THANK YOU to Carolina Story for an amazing night of music, friendship, and love. You now have a new following of life-long fans down here on Chicago's South Side!!!!
WE CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE YOU BACK IN OCTOBER FOR THE BEVERLY ART WALK!!
I have two very special friends to thank...
The first is a sweet, sweet little boy who sold some of his toys and clothes to raise money to help people in need. He delivered the money to me yesterday, and I can't stop thinking about his beautiful little heart.
The second is a woman that I met through Facebook. She baked ALL of these delicious looking treats for our friends at the shelter to enjoy. I guarantee that she made every single one with love.
There are so many good people in the world, and I feel so blessed to know so many of them myself. Always remember, together we will do GREAT things, my friends! xoxo~Sarah
Wow!! Sending BIG THANKS to my absolutely beautiful childhood friend, Kate McDermott, and her team at Bridging The Gap Rehab Services for their VERY GENEROUS donations to Almost Home. They came together to give all you see here, as well as over $100 in gift cards to Walgreens!! Awesomeness!
