A fellow Bay Area Writer, Brandilyn Collins (www.forensicsandfaith.blogspot.com) has a fan who has become homeless. She is a single mother with a sixteen year old daughter, and her daughter has started blogging the experience.
I read in the paper that 55 people, ranging in age from 18 to 78 have lost their lives this year living on the streets of the Bay Area. It has been incredibly cold here. Brandilyn is looking for shelter options for the family, but even if you can provide moral support to the family, comments to the blog, would let them know people do care.
There is so much money here. I have to believe people would help if they knew how to help. I was telling my DH how lucky we were that the heater went kaput last year instead of this one because it's so cold. But I failed to realize just how blessed we are, and I want this family to be blessed as well. Kristin
Just by the title, you can tell this is no ordinary sixteen year old girl.
