Maybe this is one way?
The request came from a group needing support.
A silent auction. Would you consider donating a painting? YES!
I believe in the work they are doing.
A different approach maybe?
Using people society has 'thrown away', are homeless,
need help themselves to do what?
To go help others like themselves in the Philippines,
India, Africa, other place on their list.
They understand need. They live in need.
Maybe the dollars from this will help them climb.
