Spread The Cheer
In the words of Buddy the Elf, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!”. Here at 12five Capital, we may not be singing (you can thank us later), but we sure are spreading the Christmas cheer in a different way!
Christmas is more than getting, it’s all about giving this season for 12five! We are giving back this month by Adopting a Family with the help of the Heartland Alliance.
According to their website, Heartland Alliance “believes that all of us deserve the opportunity to improve our lives”. Each year, Heartland Alliance makes sure that nearly one million people get that chance. Most of the people they assist are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety for one reason or another. They assist those in need to find housing, health care, jobs, and justice in some cases. They were even featured in Entrepreneur Magazine here!
This year our family is a 27 year old single mother and her two sons. The mother was brought to America at 3 years old and only knows the United States as her home. She is currently in deportation proceedings and fighting to stay in the United States to care for her two American children. As a team, we are looking forward to giving back by making sure our family has some much needed presents under the tree this year. Some of the items on our family’s wish list include: winter boots, winter coats, gloves, towels, educational toys, and laundry supplies.
The holidays are a great time to count our blessings, but remember, there are many out there who need our help. As Buddy would say,”There’s room for everyone on the nice list!”.
