You have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Those are relatively new. They follow a long tradition from England for the day after Christmas called Boxing Day. These are all about commerce, consumerism, and bargains. What do you do after the pre-Christmas deals and before the after Christmas exchange? Someone asked and answered the question several years ago and created Giving Tuesday.

Prose and Cons will be my twentieth published book, and I knew that I wanted to do something special with its release to celebrate that accomplishment. There are giveaways, promotions, and parties that I could throw to celebrate. I’m doing all of those, but I wanted to do more. I’ve been given my greatest dream come true to be a published mystery author.

This week we checked in once again with Justin Kamimoto, founder and Program Director of Fresno’s M.E.A.L. Fresno’s M.E.A.L. is an amazing group that helps the homeless in Fresno all year long. I decided to see what they had going on over the holidays, future plans, and for anyone who has never heard of them got an over view of what they do.

Love INC stands for Love In the Name of Christ and we serve Reedley, Orange Cove, and the mountain communities–the reach of Kings Canyon Unified School District. We were closed for about six months and reopened in June of this year. The Clearinghouse is the core of all we do–people with difficult life circumstances can call and our volunteers gather their stories and information. We then decide how we can best serve them and assist them in getting out of those circumstances with the use of local churches, agencies, our own services (GAP ministries), and/or volunteers.

Sophy is 13 years old. She lives in the dangerous and oppressive slum of Huruma in Nairobi, Kenya. Sophy’s future would have been a bleak one except for one thing, she had the opportunity to attend school. Today she is attending the Furaha High School and is in the top 1% of success in the nation. This was made possible by the Furaha Community Foundation who runs a school in the slum, and the Foundation is just one of the organizations partnered with When I Grow Up, a ministry of Redeemer’s Church in Reedley.

Although it may seem hard to believe, a hunger crisis has been unfolding right here in Fresno County—the breadbasket of California, or as we who live in Reedley like to say, “The World’s Fruit Basket.” According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Quick Facts about Fresno County, 22.1% of the population was under the poverty level in 2008 compared to 13.3% in all of California.
