In one year, we have watched a small idea born in 2003 transform into an organization that has directly affected the lives of many people. Early in the year, we helped a single mother provide new clothes, shoes, and food for her two children and herself. Our supporters also donated household items and cleaning supplies to help their house feel more like a home. In a tremendous outpour of support, I’m Positive, Inc. volunteers and supporters raised enough money to pay the family’s rent and keep the family together, off the street.
Later in the year, we proactively established a benefit account for someone who was murdered in our community. With the incredible support of The Garage LV, Charlies Las Vegas, Escape Lounge and countless donors and volunteers, we raised over $20,000 to pay for the funeral and memorial expenses for the family and community.
We moved into our first office space today. Even typing this sentence seems surreal. Never in my life did I think that my idea (one of promoting knowledge, solutions and positivity) would go from a dream, to a reality. None of it would have been possible without the tireless work of our volunteers and generous contributions by our donors. With your continued support, 2012 has incredible things in store for the Southern Nevada community.
Please subscribe to this blog, as we will regularly update you with our progress and growth. I sincerely thank every one of the supporters we have gained over the last year. Now, it is time to make a difference!
