"Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace.
The rest will be given."
- Mother Theresa of Calcutta
We are currently collecting contributions for a family we are sponsoring who lost everything in the recent flooding disaster in Louisiana. We have personally verified the losses.
About this family:
- 7 young children, 2 working parents
- No insurance; not in a flood zone
- Very little warning to leave, so they only took what they could grab
- Will be eligible for some FEMA assistance; but likely to be less than $20K with restrictions on use
(In addition to directly passing along funds, with your contributions we will be purchasing various furniture and appliance items they have requested using our wholesale accounts and scratch/dent warehouses in order for the funds to go farther. The intent is to get this family resettled into some level of normalcy in a rental as soon as possible so that the parents can return to work and the children to school.)
RML has NO paid administration to support
RML operates with very minimal overhead
RML flows 90% of contributions directly through to service projects
Only 10% funds our website, promotional materials, and organizational/project costs
