There are a bajillion amazing organizations and causes in the world that are more than worthy of your time, love and help. This is where I’ve been putting my ❤ lately. You’re always welcome to join in.
Community LINC is a not-for-profit organization that aims to end family homelessness for this generation and the next. Over the past 30 years, Community LINC has served 4,246 families with 14,000 individuals, including 9,300 children with shelter or programming – changing the lives of homeless families in Kansas City.
In March 2017, wildfires devastated southwest Kansas including areas of Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado. As the fire raged through the farms, homes and businesses of our friends and family – we found gratitude for the safety of our loved ones and the heroes of the weeks that followed. Farmers across the nation rallied to deliver hay, milk, food, fencing materials and more – helping residents to maintain the livestock, farms and livelihoods that were spared.
How I like to help
While visiting to assist with documentation, I captured a number of photos of the smoky skies and damaged land. Prints of the photos are still available for sale today with 100% of the proceeds supporting the Kansas Livestock Foundation.
