500 Projects of Love invite the Las Vegas community to their online auction supporting the homeless starting November 1st, 2020 at 12:00 a.m., ending November 28th, 2020 at 11:59 p.m., with winners, notified November 29th, 2020.
The auction is offering several items, but most noteworthy is a 4-day and 3-night stay at WorldMark© Resorts. The auction will be funding the organization’s two newest undertakings: Holidays for the Homeless and the monthly Birthday Celebrations with Our Homeless Friends.
The first project, Holidays for the Homeless, starts in January and is in remembrance of Taylor McCrystal whose organization, Care Package Project LTD, carried out a similar venture with their yearly, “Christmas Presents for the Homeless and Struggling.” Holidays for the Homeless is the first of many holidays the organization will be celebrating, and it will be hitting the streets, handing out 500 Christmas bags to the homeless, including water bottles, Vienna sausages, snacks, warm items like gloves and socks, hygiene products, candies, and a handwritten Christmas card.
Then, beginning January, their Birthday Celebrations with Our Homeless Friends will coincide with their regularly scheduled dinner event that now feeds around 200 homeless each month. They will be teaming up with local bakers and celebrating monthly birthdays with a special treat.
“I want to do more than just give the bare necessities,” says Racheal Rickman, founder of 500 Projects of Love. “I also want to provide HOPE and an act of love with our new programs. Several small projects of love can turn into one powerful movement.”
There are many ways to fight homelessness. To get involved, contact Racheal at info@500ProjectsofLove.org.
