Now that you know a little more about our person of the week, JD Hartman, we want you to know more about how you can help. JD’s family has started a non-profit organization called HOPE4JD. Their mission is to provide hope through financial and recovery based support services to families of children suffering from a hypoxic/anoxic brain injury due to a non-fatal drowning. HOPE4JD provides care packages and information for families when their child is in the hospital, as well as assessment by a licensed therapist and financial assistance for treatments and services to help the child going forward.
HOPE4JD is hosting author Jeanne Damoff, author of Parting the Waters, to share how her son’s near drowning accident tested her faith, family and community and how she found beauty in brokenness. If you are in the Austin area this weekend, we would love if you can attend and support HOPE4JD. To purchase tickets, click here. You can also help by sharing the flier below on Facebook or emailing it to friends and family.
When speaking with some of the Homeless in Austin they expressed some specific needs at this time. Don’t feel obligated to donate, but if you can and are willing to help please email what you are able to donate and your best contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please leave which item you are donating in the comment section on this post. That way others will know what has already been donated. We will then be in contact with you shortly to let you know where to drop off your donations.

Color Me Rad 5K Run: Supporting the Special Olympics Foundation
When Zoloft and balloon animals can’t seem to raise your spirits, the best way to brighten your life is to run Color Me Rad 5K.
Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears.
Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad.
