100 Beds for 100 Kids Campaign
Did you know there are hundreds of children in Richmond, VA without a bed of their own? These children are sleeping on floors, chairs and sofas. When this issue was brought to our attention, we felt strongly that something needed to be done. Within a matter of several months, the awesome and generous people of the RVA responded. We raised enough support to purchase 100 brand new beds, linens, pillows, comforters and several cribs. On September 27, 2014, more than sixty volunteers gahered and set out to deliver and setup beds. At the end of the day, it was a wonderful feeling to know that 100+ children went to sleep in a bed of their own.
While it was awesome to see how excited the children were to receive a bed, their parents were grateful and the volunteers were moved in a big way. It's hard to find the right words to describe all that happened that day. So, we created a video that captures a lot of the special moments. Check it out! Pay close attention to what the gentleman says at the end. It touched my heart too.
