“H.O.M.E”, It’s an acronym for “Health Outreach to the Middle East” and they are a Christian Medical Missions organization that focuses on providing medical assistance in the impoverished areas in the Middle East. Ted and I went with them on a mission trip a few years ago and I was absolutely moved just seeing the areas that everyone lives in and honestly, it just puts everything in perspective here and I just love the hearts of those people there. My Father-In-Law is the founder of this organization, and 100% of proceeds go straight to the mission field!

A 2nd Cup
This is one I have loved for a while now. Half of the proceeds of my closet sale went to them and I also drop off some of my clothes. As some of you might know, Houston is a major hub for human trafficking and there are so many organizations trying to bring awareness and fight the cause.
“A 2nd Cup” is a non-profit coffee shop doing their part to fight human-trafficking. As a coffee shop they raise awareness about human-trafficking occurring in Houston and provide a place in the community where people can gather and take positive action against trafficking. They also raise funds to support aftercare solutions for survivors of human-trafficking, including counseling, mentoring, work-experience and education.
For instance, the clothes that I donate will go straight to survivors of human-trafficking victims, but they provide so much more. I hope you will help as well!

Ok just one more! I went to an event for “Kids Meals” and didn’t realize the number of children 5 years and younger at risk of experiencing food insecurity is 21.4% in the U.S.!! Guys, my heart melted and it hurts to think that my belly is full but there are children who don’t know when their next meal will be. There will be more information below on their mission and I hope you will do what you can!
