  2. Hi Guys,

    I’d love to help the haitian people in Miami florida 99% of them are helpless and unable to live a decent life. english is a barrier to them to find a good job. the Dare To care Ministries a 501(c)3 organisation is strugleling to get on its feet to help those haitians, a food bank took place to assist them. and we have a team available to help them find jobs, but we are limited in ressources and material.

    Would you please help me to help this little creed to built a better future.

    thanks in advance for your consideration

  3. I live in Jackonville, IL trying to start up a homeless shelter in my town. The closest shelter is 30 miles away. It has been a struggle in getting the funding and the support. I was homeless myself 2 years ago and there was no where for me to go accept a hotel with 5 children and 4 of them were foster children the department did’t even help us at all we stayed in the hotel for 4 long months.I want to give back to my community. This shelter would be for whoever would be in need. Could you please give me some guildlines. I just applied for the Bill Gates foundation Grant. What would it take for my organization to recieve help from your foundation? The name of my shelter is Bread of Life Mission. Please help me keep the families warm this winter and cool this summer.
    Thank you
