Superbowl Weekend – and Happy Birthday, Kris!!

Superbowl Weekend!!

It’s Superbowl weekend in Miami!!  So much excitement fills the air!!  Tourists from all over the country will be in our fair city!!  It’s going to be epic!!  What a celebration!!

But, just a few blocks away, there’s going to be another kind of celebration – a little more low-key.  You see, what we see is a large number of people experiencing homelessness.  That’s right – people – not just the “homeless population”.  These are real people, just like you and me, who are down on their luck.  Have you ever been down on your luck?  Most of us have, even if we haven’t experienced homelessness.

Superbowl Weekend – and Happy Birthday?

Yes, that’s right, it’s Superbowl weekend and we are proud to announce that we are celebrating the birthday of a very special lady – Kris Adderley.    She writes, “Kris and Friends” is an event to celebrate my birthday with a group of unknown, overlooked people who deserve to know that there are people out here that care. My birthday falls the day before the Superbowl. With the Superbowl being held here in Miami there will be a lot of people celebrating. But they will overlook these individuals.

So for my 39th Birthday I chose to celebrate with a group of people that may be going through hard times. On a day like this I could have been doing pretty much anything in the world!  But, instead, I asked a group of friends to use the money that they would have used to celebrate with me to purchase items for the less fortunate.

I put this day together with the people I love because we are blessed with things such as having a roof over our heads, food to eat, and a hot shower to cleanse ourselves!  This event is very dear to me. Not because I personally know anyone who is homeless, but because I see a lot of people who are homeless! And I realize that any day that could have been me, when I was laid off from my job or if I didn’t have the support I have.

I want to share my special day with people – strangers –  who I can lend a helping hand to. I will show them that people like me and my friends do care. I can’t speak for everyone, but, at the end of the day, I have more than a lot of people do, and I am very grateful for that. I hope this celebration – during Superbowl weekend – helps them understand that there are people that care.  That it is possible to change the outcome of your situation with prayer, faith and actions. I look forward to creating new friendships with volunteers who have selflessly donated their time to be at this event.  It is another reflection of how blessed I am!”
