Sometimes it’s about giving back to others.
Jacquie and I came up with a plan to put some basic daily life necessities like dental items, deodorant, gum, hand sanitizer, blankets, socks, and other items in about a dozen drawstring bags to help less fortunate folks in our neighborhood.
Honestly this post isn’t about us, but it is SO easy to buy a few things in bulk and help out those who don’t have access to anything we take for granted. Give back this holiday season, it’ll make you feel better and you’ll be helping fellow humans out in tough and cold times. It’s not hard to make a difference in someone’s day or their life!!

We pray for a tiny victim of senseless violence.
Tragic news today from Shaare Zedek Medical Center:
"We regretfully announce the death of Shira & Amichai child four days after the shooting in Ofra, despite the efforts of the medical doctors to save him.”
Naftali Bennett wrote: "A Jewish baby who has not yet been named has been murdered. Palestinian terrorists shot an unborn child; and he was born out of the fire. His short life was spent in the struggle for his life. Our hearts with Amichai and Shira. The heart cries out." All of us at Vision for Israel send our condolences to the young parents and their families. We pray that you be comforted at this time of great sorrow.
In 2015 NBC 4 filmed my story of what I do during the holidays for the homeless women and children in the shelters. God has truly picked me handle these missions and I will continue to walk my journey holding Jesus hand as he guides me. My journey started at a young age at 15. Helping my mom donate toys, baked goods to homeless shelters in a Brooklyn. Knowing children are not able to eat or open toys on Christmas or get the proper education they need kills me inside because everyone deserves joy, an education, the opportunity to decide for themselves what they want to do with their life. At 24 I met good women that helped me get my story out and raise awareness. I still volunteer at the same shelter since 15 and it still lights me up as if I walk through those doors for the first time. This is where my souls yearns to be. To be someone to look up to for motivation and hope. #giveback #helpthoseinneed #poverty #helpthehomeless #godsmission #faith #volunteer
This might not look like much but this is who I want my children to be. My oldest daughter drove me to work last weekend and picked me up. On one of those adventures she noticed a homeless man on a bench with no blanket and limited things to protect him from the elements. She went and bought stuff to make homeless packs and blankets and handed them out when she came back to get me. When I asked her if she wanted to put them in her car she responded with no. You see more homeless people on your way to work. A few years ago we always had homeless packs in our cars and for whatever reason I stopped doing it. So here’s to my daughter for reminding me of what is important and that we need to help those around us. When much is given much is expected. #helpthoseinneed #homelesscarpacks #burrousbunch

🎄Candy-cane during exercise?!?
🎄Real talk, tho: HAPPY HOLIDAYS, but pls remember to donate to those who don’t have💟
🎄Could you picture being an orphan, and waking up to no family, and only 1️⃣ toy?
🎄Could you picture the horrible feeling in your stomach of being a hungry child, just because of your parents’ mistakes?
🎄Could you picture being a Veteran 🇺🇸 who served so bravely for this country, only to be dumped in the streets into homelessness?!?
🎄Could you picture the anxiety and desperation of being a single mom, whose reason for poverty was falling in love too young, sacrificing her education and career to have kids w a guy that turned out to be a jerk?
🎄Could you picture having a mental illness or addiction, that totally controlled your ability to think and reason, to the point where you couldn’t hold a job because the voices in your head convinced you to do things to get fired?!?
🎄Could you picture being born into a country without opportunities and infrastructure, and there WERE NO JOBS FOR YOU TO ‘JUST GO AND GET’?!? 🎄Could you picture being a lonely abused puppy, whose only mistake was being born into the wrong family?
🎄Could you picture being a 🙇🏼♀️ of abuse, and the terrible in-edge feeling of not knowing when the next time is that ur 👩❤️👩 would be angry?
🎄Could you picture being homeless, not getting to brush your teeth, the humiliation of having to beg for food, the freezing cold temps, the not getting to shower, the always feeling like you owe people, the nervousness and hopelessness of not knowing where your next meal would come from?
🎄Could you picture being a victim of domestic violence, and financially not being able to leave your abuser, because society IS NOT SET UP FOR A WOMAN TO ESCAPE THE RELATIONSHIP AND SURVIVE ON HER OWN FINANCIALLY?!?
🎄Could you picture knowing you were perfect for a job, trying so hard to get it, and losing out because your name was ‘Mohammed’, and the job went to ‘Matt, the rich white kid whose dad golfs at the country club with’?
🎄Could you picture being sad during the holidays, even when you tried your best to change your circumstances?
🕎My point? Empathy. Pls make a donation this season❤

It's not often that someone from the other side of the world reaches out to you directly for help, and when it does happen it's usually some fake Prince who wants to deposit money in your bank account and is asking for personal information lol.... But in this case, right around the holidays, Joseph here has reached out to me and it would seem to me that he is the real deal and I feel I can't rightfully ignore his pleas for help for these children when I'm often reminded of the kids in the world who have less durning the holidays. So I ask you to please help donate anything you can! He said $1 can feed a kid for days there in Uganda so anything you can send helps! Help spread the word and share as well! Follow him @newlifefororphanshome
Happy holidays all! <3
