We are fundraising to purchase non-parishable items, toiletries and uplifting/spiritual plaques, to send as Care Packages to families who have Incarcerated Loved Ones.
This campaign is dear to my heart because I have a son who is incarcerated in the Texas area and I live in Indiana. My heart was sad for some years, always thinking about my son, crying tears because the system failed my family. It weighed heavy on my heart for a few years until I met a young lady who was in my classroom, at a school where I was a substitute-teacher...my heart was touched by her situation as I learned that her father was in prison. I felt her heart and her pain. From that moment, something begin to change in me. I had so much compassion for others in similar circumstances and wanted to make a difference in the lives of those who have situations just like mine.
I begin to pray for guidance on how I can make a difference in lives similar to that young lady in my classroom. I started a Facebook Group with the desire to use that platform to give support, prayers and encouragement to anyone who had Incarcerated Loved Ones.
This campaign will allow the opportunity to send Care Packages to families across the country. I’ve experienced much lost in my life since my son has been Incarcerated. I want to give hope to families and give them a small token to show them that someone cares for them.
