There is something truly terrible going on in South Bend. Important people are ignoring that a culture has changed for the worse and few seem inclined to do anything about that fact.
It’s time to confront this problem head on by contributing to a cause that seeks to eradicate this scourge once and for all.
There is a group of well-intentioned Notre Dame alumni and fans of the football program who are raising funds for this important cause. I’ve donated – and I want you to too.
The Center for the Homeless is a registered nonprofit organization that has a threefold mission:
- Break the cycle of homelessness.
- Bring people together to discover the worth, dignity and potential of one another.
- Pioneer a service model worthy of replication.
The center doesn’t just provide emergency shelter for South Bend’s homeless population. It creates a game plan for the individual in need, including counseling, education, job training, transitional housing and finally, placement within the community.
If everyone reading this donated just $1, we’d make our modest goal within one hour.
We don’t care if you want to keep Brian Kelly as coach or fire him. We don’t care if you want to run Jack Swarbrick out of town or give him a lifetime contract. We care about putting our money towards an organization that can make a positive impact in the lives of those less fortunate, instead of pissing it away on billboards and newspaper advertisements that will bring lots of ridicule from those outside our community and be ignored by those in positions of power.
Team Billboard has already raised $2,515 from 49 individuals who thought their money was better spent on a “call for change” than giving to effect real change. I challenge all of you reading this to help show the country what Notre Dame really fights for.
All contributions are tax deductible.
You were going to spend this money either watching or attending the bowl game anyway.
