Mission: To alleviate the suffering from financial emergencies, primarily among people with CFIDS, who, having no recourse otherwise would have to endure hunger, homelessness & medical deprivation. Credo: "Compassion is not quantitative. Certainly it is true that behind every human being who cries out for help there may be a million or more equally entitled to attention. But this is the poorest of all reasons for not helping the one whose cries you hear." -----Norman Cousins, Human Options----- Motto: Give Till It Stops Hurting!
