Restoring Love will be a reminder that we best serve our God when we serve each other. It is a reminder that capitalism is not about who can make the most money and that charity is not just about giving handouts, but must include a hand-up.
Restoring Love will bring 100,000 people to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and have them serve individuals and communities where the need is great but resources are limited. It is about the recognition that we are all brothers and sisters.
Now, the reason for my message, we still have a few empty seats on our bus. We have 100 people so far that are going to Dallas from all over Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio to give their time volunteering during Glenn's Day of Service. There are people whose schedule will allow them to go, but finances do not. If you cannot go, please consider donating or sponsoring so that someone else can. I don't normally ask people for money, but this is a Glenn Beck group and we are participating in a Glenn Beck charity event, so I felt it was appropriate.
This is me humbly asking for your help. I have spent a lot of personal money already and can't afford to spend much more, but these buses will roll Wednesday morning even if they aren't full. We have already made a commitment to Mercury One and they have already assigned our group to our service project, so we have to go.
Thank you all reading my email and considering helping,
