So the drive for 500 toys and 500 uniforms came to an end last night. And EVERY goal was met. Pretty awesome.

Here is what I love about this:

  1. There was a church involved but they have not even had their first service yet, EVER! 
  2. Without any direct mail, telemarketing, or one dime spent on this entire campaign, people from every race, sex, political persuasion, sexual orientation, and even several faiths came together to be a very real blessing in the lives of some of the most beautiful kids you will ever meet in the world right here in downtown Atlanta. – Shaun King, pastor
  3. $20,000 + dollars in roughly 30 days. 

This proves to me a few things. It proves to me that we have hope. We have hope as a country, we have hope as Christians. We are not all nuts. We can impact our own worlds. “THE POWER OF ONE” is real. 

This makes for a happy firday
