Preparations are underway for the launch of the Fundraiser to make change: The $4 Challenge! This signature fundraising event is for The Four Day Movement, Inc., a grassroots, community-based nonprofit organization headquartered in Goldsboro, NC. This year’s opportunity is scheduled to launch on Friday, February 4th, 2022, and it will continue through March 24th, 2022.
This fundraiser will include individual social media and community influencers from impact platforms and businesses who will discuss their influence in their communities. They will also encourage their sphere of influence and everyone they may know nationwide to donate $4 dollars, as The Four Day Movement, Inc. helps shelter and feed vulnerable populations and completes and implements a model addressing homelessness that will prayerfully impact communities in Eastern North Carolina and beyond.
Did you know that the main cause of homelessness in both the USA and the UK is poverty? Did you know that the homeless are not all drop-outs or professional failures? Did you know that almost 1 in 10 homeless persons in the USA are veterans? They had difficulties in adjusting to civilian life, had mental health problems, or were suffering from PTSD. Many US cities are now committed to ending homelessness and have ambitious projects to do so. Locke, R. (2022) The Four Day Movement, Inc. is initiating and will be successful with one of these ambitious projects.
We sometimes associate homelessness with the adult population. But the statistics tell another, rather harrowing story. Of the 600,000 homeless people on the USA streets every night, up to 25% of them are children or teenagers. They may be camping out in cars, parks, or other risky areas. The National Center for Homeless Education (NCHE) estimates that there are about 1 million homeless children who are attending public schools. This figure includes those waiting for adoption or who are in transitional accommodation which is why it is such a high figure. Locke, R. (2022)
