Care Net supports one of the largest networks of pregnancy centers in North America and runs the nation’s only real-time call center providing pregnancy decision coaching. It’s a ministry that I absolutely love and believe in! I volunteer as an advocate for the women and families. I held a fundraiser show for CareNet Pro-Life pregnancy center in Redding, CA. From the one show I have booked other shows to continue to raise funds for this ministry. So the original fundraiser show acted as a leg to other fundraisers. I will continue to give 20% of my profit to CareNet through shows that originated from the first show.

For the last 3 years I’ve hosted a fashion fundraiser for an organization in our community called Matthew’s Hope. Matthew’s Hope helps the homeless by “giving them a hand up, not a hand out”.

Every Tuesday, over 60 homeless people come to their facility for a hot shower, a fresh meal, a haircut and shave and to do some laundry. They have a garden on premises that is kept up by some of the homeless people, and in doing so, they earn points they can exchange for toiletries, clothing, shoes etc. They provide prayer, love, hope, temporary housing, job opportunities, a program that teaches them responsibility to help them get back on their feet and a big hug when they walk through the door.Read More »
