EatSmart fans will continue to select each Charity of the Month in 2014. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011.
January’s Charity of the Month has been chosen by Maria Geronimo, volunteer at Several Sources.
Several Sources Shelters, a non-profit Christian organization based in Ramsey, New Jersey provides help, comfort and information to pregnant teens, unwed mothers and homeless women. Their goal is to help the young mothers change their lifestyles so that in the future they will have an education, learn good parenting skills, and know God’s love to help them build the best lives possible for themselves and their children. Please read on to learn more about the life-affirming work this organization provides daily from Founder, Kathy DiFiore.
“When we first took a pregnant teenager into my home over 30 years ago, it was to help save the lives of preborn babies of young pregnant mothers. In those early years we had the help, guidance, and the support of Mother Teresa. Our work was also honored by President Reagan during a 1988 White House visit. Today we operate five shelters in NJ for babies and their mothers and for homeless women.
We operate a national 24-hour hotline program (1-800-662-2678) which is helping save preborn babies and brings hopeful alternatives to their frightened and desperate young mothers. We offer compassion, hope and love, so that mothers in need of care and their babies get the support they need.” -Kathy DiFiore
We will be donating 50 cents for every new Twitter follower during the month of January. (So spread the word!)
