This morning I received this e-mail with the harsh reality that we need funds for Shannon's Hope Maternity Home as soon as possible or it is in danger of closing. I ask you to look at the eyes of these babies....please don't ignore them...I cry at the thought of asking these woman to go back to the streets because I know that their is a possibility that some mothers might be forced to put themselves in to the hands of an abuse man to keep a roof over their child's head. Or worse they will go into other shelters in which they can only be there from 6:00pm to 6:00am and then they are forced to walk the streets with a small newborn and perhaps even a small child.
LeAnn Rimes has donated over $5,000.00 towards homeless mothers in less than 3 months. There are no words to express our appreciation for all she has done and continues to do through the eBay account: http://myworld.ebay.com/unseenchildfoundation/ I'm going to trust God that it is okay to ask this question...I would like to ask ALL my celebrity buddies to give as LeAnn has given! If you can please help by starting a campaign to help meet or match LeAnn's donation? Help us keep Shannon's Hope open! It has been a maternity home for homeless mothers for 30 years!!!! I cannot ask these mothers to pack up their belongings and leave the home that was to keep them out of the cold this winter.... Here's the letter I received....
