In light of the recent pandemic, many people are left unemployed without means to take care of their families (including me). And being that I do not have a registered organisation, I'm trying to find means of helping the unemployed in my proximity and also push my art career to become registered and able to give back, like this platform. The spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) is having an impact on all countries across the world and tearing families apart. Losing loved ones is heart-breaking for all but people still have to put their lives on the line to make ends meet. If we can help 10 out of 100 families provide bread for their households without putting themselves at risk by going out, then this is the aim of our cause.
Why You Should Donate
I am grateful for my god given talent but if I can't use it to help others then it's almost a waste but if I had the support then I would be even more grateful. I live in a nuclear family with young children who have stopped going to school and babies who depend on the nourishment of their mothers to feed them. Similar families like this are scattered across Jamaica, and with the numbers of unemployment rising daily we will be in a dilemma in the coming weeks.
The good part of this pandemic is that it's has drastically reduced crime in my country because of social distancing, but with everyone being at home, the resources of families are being used faster than they can supply them. The government has an care plan but it is not tailored for the unemployed but more for the working class. If we can raise enough funds for each family to have a monthly stipend it would ease the pressure of families having to put themselves at risk to make ends meet. I have assembled a Heart to Hands team who collect donated food items and store. This is a means to help the less fortunate and hopeless citizens in and around my area.
How You Help
With the help of God, your donations will be used to support our Heart to Hands Ministry and provide food, masks, sanitizers and a stipend for unemployed and struggling families. With each donation, we can reach closer to our goal of stemming the spread of Covid-19, thus encouraging social distancing because these people know that there are people who are concerned about their health, their lives and their well-being.
I am eternally thankful for all the hearts my message will touch and I pray that God will give you an insight to give. It might be small.You might think it will not make a difference but that is the voice of doubt.
Remember, "Little is much, when God is in it". Thank you.
For all donors with the inspiration of donation US$100 or more, will receive a personal 12'x16' acrylic portrait painting done by Kimarly Young.
