Whether it is a person stumbling on the street or falling on hard times because of illness, whether it is someone close to us or a complete stranger – our first impulse is to help.

Even Small Donations Have an Impact.

But you don't have to be a millionaire to make a significant difference; even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual's quality of life..
