Omaha Gives-Will You Give $10?
This year (for the first time) The Inclusive Life Center (now 501c3) is participating in Omaha Gives!, a one-day online fundraising event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation.
It is held on May 24 to raise support for nonprofits in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie Counties. It is a community-wide event to show off the area’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this city great. Since 2013, this community give-together has raised over $27 million for 789 nonprofits!
Chaplain Royal is asking for you to mark your calendar, save the date, and share $10 with Inclusive Life on Wednesday, May 24th by visiting https://www.omahagives.org/inclusivelife
Think About This
“I need you. You need me. I won’t harm you with words from my mouth. I love you. I need you to survive…” Our world is so hungry for the truth of these words. It does not matter your race, your sexual orientation, your gender identity, if you have children or a family, or not. What matters is that we all have a community, a place, a space to gather in, so we can work together, and to help each other get through life.
We are rich people, some even have money. We are runners, walkers, swimmers, and those that wish they did. We are people who sing out loud and proud, and some even sound good. We are people who are young, and young at heart.
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, just got out of jail, or just got lost, and found your way here by mistake. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope Francis, or haven’t gathered in a community for weeks, months or years.
We welcome sport moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like organized religion, or who have had religion shoved down your throat.
If you blew all your cash at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because the grandparents are in town and needed to go to a church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a hug, or prayer right now (or both), we welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, and we welcome you. As you are.
Inclusive Life… All Are Welcomed. All Are Loved.
