Don't Fall For This Charity

                         
                   Earlier today, my mother was shopping for groceries at a local store.  She was approached outside the store by a woman asking for donations for Reach, Inc. of Alabama, supposedly a place that helps abused children; but the woman wouldn't give my mom a web address or phone number, Then, when my mom got home she called the local police to check the lady out and supposedly her papers checked out; but, being suspicious myself-I did a little research on the web, and there are countless articles and blog posts pointing out problems with this charity. There are accounts of abuse and cult behavior by the staff and leaders of this organization. Some posted anonymously and open by the victims themselves. The head of this organization is Bishop Luke Edwards who is affiliated with a Pentecostal denomination. 


* Note: Since I first wrote this post, My mom has contacted the sheriff's office and is sending the articles below by fax. They are looking into things.



                                 After reading these, it disgusted me that such things can go on under the guise of religion and charity.

 Today is a special day. Even though I have minimal Cerebral Palsy, I didn't know about World Cerebral Palsy Day until today. It is an event celebrated on the first Tuesday of September, beginning this year.  The website for World Cerebral Palsy Day is taking your ideas for improving the lives of those with Cerebral Palsy. All you have to do is register on the site, submit your idea with a description that takes 1 minute or less and registered members can vote on different ideas. The best ideas are chosen and may be used or developed  on the following year's World CP Day by chosen experts.So get going and spread the word- the submission and voting will only last 36 more days this year!
