Fox Charities always seems to know when The Time Is Now to Help is struggling to bring assistance to those in need in our communities. Last week we nearly ran out of funds and would not have been able to stop the many evictions, utility disconnections, hunger and fear that were in most of the letters we opened. In that same stack of requests for our assistance there were envelopes filled with hope for all of us at The Time Is Now to Help and the many people we help. One of those envelopes contained a pledge from our dear friends at Fox Charities to provide us with a very generous Summer 2014 $25,000 Matching Grant opportunity. We are humbled and so appreciative of their generosity and timing. It is so distressing for us when we do see the great need, we do feel the overwhelming stress and fear that our fellow Americans are feeling when they ask us for assistance. It seems that most people turn to us as their last resort, their last hope for keeping a roof over their family’s heads, keeping their lights on, preventing their car from being repossessed. We will be working hard to answer these pleas for assistance in the coming weeks of this matching grant. We are so thankful for all of you and ox Charities for making our mission The Time Is Now to Help even possible. The notes, calls and emails from those that we have helped are filled with thanks giving and appreciation. The recipients of our caring and sharing share their tears of gratitude and relief with Sal at every visit. Their fear and stress are relieved because all of you and Fox Charities care what happens to our fellow creations. You do not sit back and watch what is going on in our world and say, “There is nothing I can do to make this world a better place.” You know you and The Time Is Now to Help together can make a difference. We can make this world a better place one person or one family at a time. Sometimes when we watch the world news we feel overwhelmed and hopeless about not being able to change what is going on in our world. We wish we could bring common sense to the chaos and peace where there is violence. When we bring help in our local communities we are doing just that. We are changing the world one person at a time. We are bringing peace one family at a time. We are sharing our love and resources to those that need it most. Can we change what is going on in the world around us? Yes we can. We can change the lives of those in desperate need, one person or one family at a time. That is attainable. That is always our goal and foremost in our hearts when we put your donations, matched by Fox Charities, to work in our communities.

Our recent assistance has been to poverty stricken cancer patients and many suffering from health care emergencies. We have helped teenaged children living with disabled parents, senior citizens struggling to pay utilities and living with food insecurity, veterans on the verge of homelessness, poverty stricken living with the incredible pain due to the lack of dental care and much more. Their pain and fear has been removed thanks to all of “You”, The Time Is Now to Help and Fox Charities coming together to bring life changing assistance.

Some of the emergency assistance that we are confronted with now includes an organ transplant recipient that is physically healing but has found themselves in great financial distress and a woman that is surviving living alone while she endures recently going blind due to being physically attacked. In addition there are many other emergency needs that will be provided this coming week. Many of us here at The Time Is Now to Help have seen Sal return from a long day of visitations. This week we again watched Sal return emotionally and physically exhausted due to the magnitude of great need. Sal reacting to those in need with his “Time Is Now” motivation, wanting to relieve the pain and suffering of the poverty stricken right now, along with your support and prayers is what reenergizes him.

God Bless all of you for being there with your support to make our good deeds a reality for helping our fellow creations.

Please consider a donation at this time, knowing every penny you donate will not only be used 100% to help the poverty stricken, but will also be matched by the Fox Charities Summer 2014 $25,000 Matching Grant.

Health & Happiness, God Bless Everyone, W.C./Sal
