That afternoon, we hope to deliver $100 each to 50 homeless men and women—some of them having a dog or two with them—who spend our frigid Canadian nights out of doors and don’t know how they’re going to eat from day to day.
For reasons unknown to us and none of our business anyway, they don’t make it into the shelters or the soup kitchens.
It is especially disheartening to them to see the well-dressed and the well-fed hurrying by on their way to church, to a family dinner, to a pricey restaurant, to a party…while they go hungry on Christmas Eve.
Can you fit $5, $10, $50, $100, $500 to feed the hungry into your Christmas budget this year?
In past years, several thousands of readers have seen our Feed the Homeless on Christmas appeal over the course of the Nativity Fast, yet only three or four dozen responded. Can you help this year?
Please help us help.
To contribute to Orthodoxy in Dialogue’s 3rd Annual Feed the Homeless on Christmas Campaign send your contribution via PayPal using firstname.lastname@example.org as the recipient.
Because of GoFundMe’s mishandling of our account we will accept donations until December 31 via PayPal.
Funds will be distributed as they come in between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
