What motivates you to help the less fortunate?

I see the difference a little bit of help does for someone. I'm very appreciative of people that have helped me and I know without the compassion & care of other people we wouldn't be living in this great world of ours. I believe people should be more caring & show more concern for the less fortunate. No one should ever be hungry when there is so much food out there.

What do you think about when you see homelessness in your area?

I came from a Catholic background and my school would always help out the less fortunate. We would pack backbacks full of school supplies as well as provided canned foods to Native Americans in reservations, as well as donated clothing & foods to the homeless so I have been around the homeless & they are no different than anyone of us. I loved hearing, their stories, what they use to do & I love to see their amazing personalitys shine thru when talking to them. I was a Nursing student for LA COUNTY/ USC for a short time & mainly my patients were the homeless. I have nothing but respect for the homeless & treat them just as they should be treated, like human beings, like people.

Introduction

I'm a caring person who just wants to help those that are less fortunate than myself. I'm a hobby photographer & floral designer so any services I can provide in those fields I am happy to do. I am willing and ready to assist in anyway I can.
