Tiny Tim Foundation

A FEW YEARS AGO my family got involved with a charity called the Tiny Tim Foundation. Each year this foundation takes food, clothing, blankets, and hope to the residents of Ascension, Mexico.
This year, the Tiny Tim Foundation is unable to take volunteers to Mexico to serve the sweet people who reside there.
The state of Chihuahua has erupted in violence with over 1,500 drug related deaths in the area in since January 2007.
Death toll in Mexico's drug war surges Attorney General Eduardo Medina Mora says 5,376 people have been killed so far in 2008, more than twice the toll for the first 11 months of 2007--Los Angeles Times, Dec 9, 2008
Every year, it is my heart's desire to travel to Mexico and serve the people who reside there. To see a glimmer of hope in their eyes that the world is not all harsh.

Please pray for the people in Mexico. Most of them are not the ones we see. They are living in their own country and trying to take care of their own families on meager wages. Most of them have little hope for the future. This drug war is not their doing, but it is causing them to suffer. They need our prayers and our assistance.

The Tiny Tim Foundation is providing as much assistance as possible and everyone wishes that next year brings peace to that land so that the Tiny Tim Foundation may do what it set out to do and help these wonderful people.

Oh my goodness! I can't believe you are living in Nebraska, and are an attorney!! Congratulations all all your hard work!

It's amazing to realize we all end up places we never thought we might.. I'm in Texas, never thought that would happen!

Anyway, you can check out my blog too, I just try to keep it slightly low-profile on FB and all.

Merry Christmas!
