I first became aware of The time is now on CNN's Heroes last year. I was really moved by what the organization is doing and think it's one of the most impactfull charities i have ever seen. I read their stories montly of the families they help and it brings me to tears. We definately need more charities like the Time is now to help struggling families in America.
