I am writing you once again to ask for your help and assistance. This past weekend there was a horrible tragedy that occurred in a area known as Little Village in Chicago, Illinois. A six year old girl standing on the doorstep of her own home right next to her mother and sister was brutally shot by gang members and died.
You can read the horrible story here.
We have friends (pastors) whose children knew this young girl in kindergarten and they are heartbroken as is the entire community. Watch the video here.
Now the grieving family has to come up with $8000 to cover funeral costs.
Please, read this story and pray. If you have been looking for a way to help the needy, this your opportunity. My heart breaks because I know that this could have been one of my children. As a mother, my heart goes out to this family. I look at her sweet picture and wonder---why, Lord? Why?
We won't know now but hopefully we will in heaven one day.
Please consider helping this mother out. From one mother to another mother we can make a difference.
They have set up a fund--the Aliyah Shell Fund at Chase Bank. I know times are tough but know that any amount will help. You may donate here as well:
We also ask that you keep them in your prayers during this difficult time.
