Dear W.C.,

I wanted to thank you for the help you gave my mother years ago. I was only 13 years old when my father left my mother. We had no money, very little food, and had just been told to vacate the motel we were living. My grandma wrote you a letter about us. I can still remember my mother crying tears of thanks over the generosity of The Time Is Now To Help.

I remember the feeling of hopelessness turning into hopefulness. I remember moving from a dirty, scary place to a clean, safe apartment. You found my mom a car and helped her get a job. She went from always crying to wearing a smile on her face again. You introduced us to new friends and we started going to church. When my mom said I was having a hard time with my school work you stepped in again to make sure I got the help I needed. I just have to tell you what a big difference The Time Is Now To Help's assistance made in our lives.

We would have been homeless and hungry if it wasn't for The Time Is Now To Help. You not only prevented that from happening, you changed our whole lives for the better. I am now going to college with the help of scholarships. My mom works full time at the same job you helped her get all those years ago. She loves her job and her life now. She often thanks God for the intervention of The Time Is Now To Help. I shudder to think what would have become of us if you hadn't stepped in to assure we received the help we needed. I know I would not be going to college right now. Our lives would have turned out so different. We are eternally grateful to The Time Is Now To Help.

Dear Readers,

It is very heartwarming to hear the difference The Time Is Now To Help has had on people's lives. Usually assistance to one family affects many lives. If we can prevent just one family from becoming homeless, hungry, cold, or abused, we have changed several lives. We help our fellow creations each week, adding up to over 500 people a year. It's amazing what your Caring and Sharing has accomplished. Together, lives have been changed. God Bless you for helping.

Each week I continue to receive many letters asking for assistance. Each letter is painstakingly reviewed and researched before we even contact the requester. It is a long process but God, my heart, and you give me the strength to continue on. I feel your prayers and support pushing me forward to offer people in need a loving, helping hand. Thank you for this continued support.

Letters like the one above encourage us to carry on with our mission.

Thank you for your Caring and Sharing. Together we make a tremendous difference in removing the pains of poverty, giving hope, compassion, and sustenance to our fellow creations.

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