One World, One Love

Sally S Bruno

To him in whom love dwells, the whole world is but one family.
— Buddha

Let me first say thank you to everyone.  The outpouring of support and desire to help and welcome the families that have been brought here is truly amazing.  My heart is full and faith in humanity reinvigorated by the love that is being shared.  People of all walks of life and backgrounds have reached out.  Particularly moving was the personal messages I received from those who had once been refugees themselves.  One woman who fled her home country over 40 years ago shared how she still remembered the first time she smelled a bottle of Clairol Herbal Essences shampoo. And here she is 40 some years later doing what she can to help others fin their new home and start a new life. Breathtaking.

Below is a list of resources and ways to help.  We will be holding a fundraiser at Root Hot Yoga on January 14th 1:45 - 3 pm to help raise funds needed to transport and deliver furniture and larger items.  You can Register Here. We are working to get one centralized location to coordinate ongoing efforts so please check back. And as always feel free to email me with questions sallysbruno@gmail.com . Love and light to all ~ Sally
