Consider signing your family up as part of TEAM LOVE. Next week, we are sending all TEAM LOVE givers a 2018 review of the lives, families, and communities TEAM LOVE has changed this year. Consider joining, then sit down with your families over the holidays to read about the hope you have brought to people across this country and around the world. ▫️

As always, 100% of what we receive from TEAM LOVE donations goes to people who are hurting. TEAM LOVE’s monthly donations provide daily grants for urgent and vital needs across the country and the globe -- like installing a ramp so a mom could bring her son home from surgery, providing alert monitors for two girls with frequent seizures so the family could sleep in peace for the first time; putting food on the table; and keeping the heat on for a mom caring for teenage boys and a sister with disabilities. ▫️
Because of TEAM LOVE, we are also able to act in real time as first responders when disasters occur – such as the devastating fires and hurricanes across the U.S., and the chemical attacks in Syria this year. So as part of TEAM LOVE, you know that when crisis hits, you are already on the way! ▫️
Through these and countless other ways, TEAM LOVE heals the world a little at a time. Please join us with a monthly tax-deductible gift of any amount: https://togetherrising.org/give/ or go through the link in our bio ☝️. ▫️
JOY TO THE WORLD!
G & Together Rising
Please meet Laura and her four daughters -- Kendall, Taylor, Emmaline & Ava.
Two years ago this month, they lost their beloved husband and father, Chris, when he collapsed and died in their home. His daughters were the first by his side.
Laura was a stay-at-home mom, and even with Chris working, money was tight. With him gone, no savings, and 4 kids age 3 to 10, Laura’s panic for her family’s future left her barely a moment to grieve her own loss.
Laura’s warrior friend, Karen, heartbroken for Laura, wrote to Together Rising.
Karen told us about what a warrior Laura is– that even through her unbearable grief, what Laura wanted most was to work to support her girls. Amid all of the sorrow and pressures on her, what Laura asked for was help paying for the courses she needed to get recertified for her teaching degree – so she could give her girls hope and a future.
That’s where you, through Together Rising, stepped in. With $20,000, you paid for Laura’s last two course requirements and 18 months of the family’s rent so she could complete her courses.
We just heard from Laura that she successfully renewed her teaching license, is working a long-term substitute position, and is awaiting word on a full time teaching position at her girls’ school!
Laura wrote you this: “I just can't thank you all enough for helping my girls and me get back on our feet and into a position where I can support our family. You are helping to give us a beautiful future and for that we are beyond thankful! I wasn't sure how I'd get through the day, let alone 2 years. But I knew I had to keep moving forward as healthfully as I could for our girls. All those small, tiny (what seemed to be insignificant) steps added up to such a great distance. Together Rising allowed me the time I needed to get myself and my girls together, to get us to a place where we can begin again and for that I am forever grateful. I have adopted your philosophy, "We CAN do hard things" and I use it in the classroom every day!!” ▫️
Thank you for trusting Together Rising with your monthly donations (link in bio ☝🏼). We can do hard things – like heal and sister the world a little at a time.
