Brothers and Sisters,

Two years ago my girlfriend and her best friend co-founded The Wandering Heart Project. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides clothing and essentials to foster and homeless kids all over Massachusetts. They have since made over 1000 deliveries including dozens of kids specifically in the City of Cambridge. I have personally delivered to many of these kids and get to see how just a simple bag of clothing can light up their day.

This coming Saturday, The Wandering Heart Project is holding its first-ever fundraiser in Carver MA. It will be held at Brewery 44 in Carver from 1-9 pm. There will be beer, music, and food as well as a 50/50 and raffle prizes. I realize Carver is quite far for many of you so I have attached a raffle list since you do not need to be present to win any of the prizes. You can send donations via Venmo to @wanderingheartproject or my Venmo if you have it. Please specify which prize basket you are putting in for or the 50/50, along with your phone number.

Many of you have already donated and I thank you so much! This is an amazing organization that has the potential to reach so many more kids in need.
