Between my hacking cough and sounding like an 80-year-old chain smoker when I talk, I wasn’t the ideal candidate for work today. I’m sure my co-workers thank me.
This meant I had some quiet time to think, so I started jotting down some ideas for the calendar/photo project I want to work on to raise funds for Bellingham’s homeless residents.
First of all, I want to thank all of the people who either commented or emailed me after my original post last week with their ideas or general support. Many of your sentiments were deeply moving, and I appreciate how open your hearts are to helping those who are less fortunate.
Secondly, I decided to name it the Life in Focus Project. If successful here in Bellingham, I thought – this idea may be worth expanding to help other populations in other areas as well.
Now comes the hard part – research. I am starting to reach out to organizations, like Hope in Shadows in Vancouver, to find out how they organized their project. I won’t bore you with my entire project plan for this, but I’ll keep posting and occasionally ask for thoughts or maybe even assistance. We shall see! I’m excited to have so much support and look forward to making progress!
