WE is a community based project. It is not a charity. What is the difference? Well, the difference is investment. Your help builds programs which make opportunity possible.
The single parent today is faced with many obstacles. Like the rest of America, one of the primary obstacles is finance. It costs a lot to live these days and even more to raise a family on a single income. Many people have the misconception that most single parents are able to qualify for social welfare and are therefore taking advantage of the system. This is not true. Actually, surprisingly few single parents qualify for benefits. And the truth is that if you gave the majority of single parents the opportunity to earn what was necessary, they would. Unfortunately, even working multiple jobs is often not enough to cover the expenses of running a household and raising children.
What WE fundraising aims to do is create that opportunity and find ways to solve the greater problems facing the single parenting family body as whole with smarter solutions that do not require hand outs. As the saying goes… give a man a fish, he will eat for a day, build a community with lasting solutions to ensure everyone eats. Or something like that.
WE has created an annual scholarship fund that comes from other single parents or those who have been single parents or those who know what single parenting entails. This scholarship fund is not a charity, it is a helping hand of encouragement. Because WE know that it’s not always easy and WE just want to encourage those who are going through this by saying keep up the good work.
WE need funding to pay the people who help build this community. It is social investment and WE thank you for your involvement.
