If you're interested in donating, bring your bottled water to our studios (1601 W Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30309) between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  

So help us spread the word using #AtlantaCares and we'll see you at the truck!  

Thanks to Atlanta Peach Movers for providing the truck and movers to help load it!

KISS 104.1’s HOSEA Helps KISS-A-THON

HOSEA Helps: Thank You!

THANK YOU for your support Metro Atlanta!  With your help we raised over $43,000 for Hosea Helps!

  

For over four decades, Hosea Helps resided at 1035 Donnelly Avenue in Southwest Atlanta. As of July 1, 2017, Hosea Helps will be homeless, and their lease will not be renewed, so they need a NEW HOME. The funds from this campaign will go toward purchasing a new warehouse, moving expenses and closing costs.

You can still help!  Right now, you can donate at gofundme.com/4Hosea   

 

Imagine what Atlanta would be without Hosea Helps:  
  • 15,000 Georgia seniors would not receive hot meals 
  • 121 families will go homeless 
  • 2,000 children would not have school supplies or toys for Christmas 
  • 2,800 families would not have vital health screenings and preventative health care services 
  • 21,000 families would be without nutritious food 
  • 2,000 orphans in Uganda would be without food and housing 
  • 700 children in our school in the Philippines would lose access to education K-12. 
  • Countless number of homeless citizens would freeze in the winter along with hundreds of seniors would not have heat 
  • 9,000 volunteers would lose the opportunity to give back to the greater Atlanta community    

Hosea Helps needs to raise $600,000 to help with PURCHASING, MOVING & CLOSING COSTS. The new location will be larger allowing them to expand their outreach programs and continue their mission - helping people in need. They need your help to continue their work, so please donate and share this link with your friends so they can make a difference too!  

Hosea Helps is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization - donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. All donations will be used solely for the purchase, moving expenses and costing cost for the new warehouse.

Ruby was born a fighter. Diagnosed with Down syndrome hours after her birth, she’s spent her entire little life fighting against statistics. She has dealt with leukemia the same way. Ruby was diagnosed with AML-M7 a few months after her 2nd birthday, following a routine CBC; Ruby was not showing any symptoms. The hardest part has been having our family split up for long periods of time: in four months, Ruby was in the hospital for over 60 days. Ruby has two older siblings who miss her during her hospital stays, especially since they cannot visit her in the hospital during flu season (which has been in effect for almost all of Ruby's treatments so far). Ruby started preschool two days a week the week before she was admitted to the hospital. Leukemia has stolen some precious time for her in that regard, as early intervention is so important for kids with Down syndrome. But as difficult as some of these things have been, Ruby has led us through this with minimal fear. She has responded very well to the chemo, and her energy and spunk have remained. Ruby's smile makes everyone who sees her, in and out of the hospital, smile too.

As March 2016, Ruby is in remission and is transitioning back into 'normal' life. Ruby loves music, playing with other kids, playgrounds, and reading.

How you can give to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts

The scale of the devastation in the Philippines as a result of Typhoon Haiyan is immense.  The death toll is over 1,700 and rising.  Many predict it to reach over 10,000.Those who have survived have gone days without food or fresh water.  Doctors are desperate for medicine to treat the wounded.Air Force Capt. Antonio Tamayo told the Associated Press:  "It's overwhelming.  We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none."The longer survivors go without help, the greater chance of disease.According to the AP:  "a reporter drove through the town for around 7 kilometers (4 miles) on Wednesday, seeing more than 40 bodies. He saw no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people were lining up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply."How can you help?There are many organization which have set up websites for funds for disaster relief.   The American Red Cross will take your donations online.  The link for its website is here.  UNICEF reports an estimated 4 million children were affected by the storm.  You can also give via 'UNICEF Responds' by clicking this link.
