Zarathushtis Step up to Help the Homeless
The children of ZAMWI’s Avesta class and their parents are spearheading a drive to help the homeless in the nation’s capital with a walk scheduled for 4th November 2012. Zarathushtis are invited to join in this drive by becoming virtual walkers. For registration of $35/- per virtual walker, Fannie Mae will provide a matching gift for “Bethesda Cares”.
Zoroastrians are known for their generosity and understand the importance of helping the less fortunate. I know that we all give to organizations like the Cancer Society, because we can relate to this illness. We all know someone or know of someone who has to fight this disease, but Homelessness is not something we can see or to which we can relate. We at Bethesda Cares, not only work to help the homeless, but in the last few years have helped people from becoming homeless. Single parents who cannot pay the rent as they have to pay medical bills for a child, families that cannot pay their utilities, all these people are assisted so as not to make them homeless.
Please open your hearts and give to this great cause and help us reach our goal. Click on the link below to register before November 4th.
