SUSAN G KOMEN BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
February 3, 2012

I've contributed to Susan G Komen Foundation annually for the past 10 years. My faith in the organization is irrevocably broken- how dare Nancy Brinker and her team withdraw funding for cancer screening for low income women. How unconscionable for SGK, which as done great work in the PAST pit themselves against Planned Parenthood,. DISHONORABLE and embarrassing for women everywhere.

FareStart
February 3, 2012

FareStart is a Seattle based not-for-profit that provides culinary and life skill training for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. FareStart is also a key partner in Catalyst Kitchens and helps non profits across the country develop similar transformative programs. It is truly inspiring to see FareStart students transform their lives and move from the streets to stable employment and housing. FareStart also provides over 2000 meals to low income day cares and shelters every day. I've volunteered at FareStart for the past 12 years and it has been the most meaningful work I've ever done. Delivering and serving shelter meals side by side with students who are themselves gaining the skills to become self sufficient is a humbling and fulfilling experience.
