Raili’s “Help Me Help Others” Fundraising Page!
Raili Mazurek's fundraiser supporting THE PARISH OF ST JOHN THE EVANGELIST NORTH VANCOUVER in The Long, Long Night of Hope 2019
I am taking part in The Long, Long Night of Hope 2019 and I need your help! For the next few weeks I will be raising funds to help the homeless in our community. Then, on February 23rd, I will be sleeping in my car to raise awareness for the homelessness crisis. It will be cold and uncomfortable, but with your support it will be truly worth it.
I’m doing this for the third time to help people who suffer. Mental illness and abuse often leads to homelessness. It’s not about the poor trying to mooch and people not wanting to work. It’s not about people living for free in BC while the rest of us pay taxes. It’s not about “us” and “them” and us doing what the government should do instead.
It IS about giving when you can and having compassion. You should be so lucky and thankful to have money to donate! That’s what it’s about for me, anyways. Thanks, friends!
