MORE THAN A PASSION… A MISSION.
For many of us, children going hungry, without a roof above their heads, or lacking clothes to keep them warm or attend school might sound like a distant reality, and that’s a blessing. But believe it, right here in the state of Michigan too many kids are living under such conditions themselves… right now. Our team is passionate about this topic, and feels it’s time to do what’s in our power to CHANGE that reality… yes, right now. That’s why we just volunteered to become part of the #AgentsofChange movement, and to create our own agency’s Community Cause Program, which will empower us to carry the flag of hope, relief and opportunity for Michigan children – every single day.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
We are declaring ourselves Ambassadors for children in need in our community, and will live up to that commitment by repurposing some of our business efforts. What does that mean? It means that, instead of using some of our marketing budget to place more ads, for example, WE WILL OFFER TO DONATE MONEY TO CHILDREN IN NEED EVERY TIME ANYONE RECOMMENDS THEIR FRIENDS TO US FOR A NO-OBLIGATION QUOTE.
That’s how we make giving back part of our daily jobs… and that’s how we make giving back easy and free for our entire community, as well!
We believe we can have all of our campaigns SOLELY FUNDED BY OUR AGENCY… by simply REWARDING YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS!
THE REAL TRUTH
Let’s now take a look at how serious is the situation of kids facing insecurity when it comes to food, shelter, clothes and education in our community…
Hunger deprives our kids of more than just food. It’s a simple fact: A child’s chance for a bright tomorrow starts with getting enough healthy food to eat today. But in America, 1 in 6 children may not know where they will get their next meal. For the nearly 13 million kids in the U.S. facing hunger, getting the energy they need to learn and grow can be a day-in, day-out challenge.
17% of children in Michigan live in households that are food insecure today. In Livingston County alone, records show at least 7,280 children are unsure if they will have to again skip their next meal. At any given day, over 100 homeless people wander around our county’s streets; many are parents whose kids are temporarily living with acquaintances or family members, and lacking stability. That leads to distress in education patterns, when children are either not attending school, or being sent to class without proper clothes, supplies, or nutrition.
We know our hearts are not the only ones to break when made aware of this situation… And we sure can do much to change this sad picture. We look forward to together, help all children in our community live well and thrive!
