The "Soul to Soul" project was created to address the needs of people
who are homeless and suffering. While we may not be able to solve these problems; what we can do is give
with an open heart, hold a hand, offer gifts, comfort, and listen in an effort to help ease the suffering.
It only takes "one spark of inspiration" for any one of us to turn our lives around and begin again. Even
if we are suffering with mental illness, it takes only a moment to seek the assistance that can forever alter
your life and the lives of those who love you. This is how we make a difference, one Soul
at a time.
It all started one rainy Spring afternoon when
my daughter said to me "We should give your books out to homeless people." In December
of 2008, we began our mission of delivering bundles, which consist of blankets and inspirational books
to the homeless. These blankets are heavy and made with love; we have our difficult New England winters in mind as
we make them. Because they are large enough to rap around a grown-up body and we double them for extra warmth,
they cost $50.00 per blanket to produce. We rely on the profits from book and CD sales to offset our cost
and allow us to buy the materials to make the blankets. If you would prefer to simply make a donation, that would
be greatly appreciated. Please send donations to:
