This isn’t a partisan organization, but it is one you may want to consider supporting. I understand they’ve seen a lot of their grants and other funding sources dry up in this economy.

Will you help today by either attending the gratitude luncheon, purchasing a raffle ticket or sending a tax deductible donation of whatever you can, $1, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or more. If you wish you can donate online at http://www.positiveimagesflorida.com/Donate.
We are deeply grateful to your support over the years since we were established in 1997. We have been able to serve approximately 10,000 individuals either by dressing them for interviews, counseling them or providing transitional housing. We want to continue providing those services; however, we cannot do it by ourselves.
This is a very challenging time for our country and as well our local community. We know that we will weather the economic challenges that surface in our lives. As we witness lean times all around us, it is important to remember that we live in an abundant universe. We are opening ourselves to divine ideas and see new paths to prosperity opening before us. However, we know that we cannot just wait until the universe opens and provide.
Positive Images is primarily supported by volunteers, donations and grants. Many of the grants we have had in the past are non-existent; however, the individuals we serve are in more need than ever because of the economic downturn. In 2004 we began to see this downturn and had to reduce our expenses through staff layoffs and freezes on hiring. Each year the economic situation has worsened. We are faced with very tough choices and we need your help. We know that it will require courage and commitment on your part to give in a time of economic uncertainty. But we know that as you give, so you will receive and we know that blessings will flow to you as a result of your giving.
We are grateful for all you have done and continue to do for us. With your help we will continue to transform lives.
