Still no major sponsor for the Year of Giving Anniversary event. Have spoken to a few law firms, they have passed. Had two corporate companies analyzing it too, one passed the other one now has completely gone silent. Although I try not to be bitter, the sad reality is that these companies spend this on business travel without batting an eye.
On a positive note, today’s recipient will make you smile. Her name is Lorrie and she is a Street Sense vendor who I met at 13th and H Streets in downtown Washington.
Lorrie has been selling the Street Sense newspaper since May and says that she loves it. Her wide smile and contagious laughter is still vivid in my memory. “I try to make everyone’s day,” she told me. Well she made mine!
Check out this short video of Lorrie and see her warm smile for yourself!
After meeting Lorrie, we have spoken a few times on the phone. She explained that even with her paper sales she is falling short of the income that she needs. If you would like to help Lorrie by making a donation, you can go to the online donation portal of Street Sense and make a donation. In the comments section just put what percentage of your donation you would like to go directly to Lorrie H.
