Since this is the first day of 2009, I thought it would be a good thing to start off the new year by being charitable.
After I read this touching story about Latrica Ryan, a 29-year-old single mother with ten kids, aged two months to 13 years, who gets assistance from FACED (Faith Access to Community Economic Development), I wanted to help in my own way.
The story mentions nothing about any father(s), so I’ll assume the reporter either conveniently skipped that part, or that Latrica is the Virgin Mary of Flint, Michigan.
There are a few charities I support that can help people like Latrica dig themselves out of financial difficulty so the rest of us don’t have to pay to raise their children.
Here some of the organizations, in addition to FACED, that may be able to help:
WSYKTF (We’ll Sew Your Knees Together for Free)
S-FAST-W (Stop F*#$@*g and Start Working)
BaDa GPS (The Baby-Daddy Global Positioning System fund)
BCP PEZ ECOC (Birth Control Pill Pez Dispensers for the Economically Challenged)
PO-PO WYA (Pull Out, Pull Out, Whoever You Are)
And of course there’s always the Ron Popeil product available for free for those in need, the Ronco Crotch-Cork.
