I am a volunteer for Reparations, a rapidly growing project that connects people in need with those who can offer much needed assistance. I was moved by this request and wanted to ask if you might be willing to offer an in-kind donation of X hours of services to a woman named X in your community who has been just trying to survive as many of us are. Here's X in her own words: "I do eldercare for my grandparents who are 101 and 97. Both have been highly involved in black community. My grandfather was an engraver for the Baltimore Afro-American Newspaper and was involved in getting a black news printers Union. My grandmother was a Baltimore City schoolteacher and a pioneer of headstart in Baltimore." Could Business Name/Professional offer X hours of time to this family in need? It's easy to connect with Person X either through me or the main site. I am a person, just like you, who is just trying to live in a way that makes a difference. With the tagline "There is something you can do," Reparations is offering a chance to do tangible good right now. All of us who've have been horrified by relentless media coverage of the senseless loss of lives due to social turmoil, fear mongering, and injustice finally have something positive that we can do! And the media is jumping on this good news. The Stranger, the Seattle Globalist, Univision, and the local NBC station KING5 (see links below) have already reported on the simple beauty of this project that offers everyone a way to participate. People WANT to help. People WANT to do good. There is something Business Name/Professional can do today to make a difference.
