Julian D. King Gift Foundation 2nd Annual Hatch Day

On August 14, my sister Julia and I will host our second annual Hatch Day at the new Kroc Center on the South Side. Along with about 50 members of our extended family and dozens more volunteers, we’ll be handing out school supplies ranging from calculators to crayons to USB drives — anything you might need for school — to 5,000 inner-city kids....</p>

Hi Jennifer,

This is a wonderful cause that you and your sister are supporting. It is essential that we put efforts such as these in the future of our children. Through your grieving process of losing your family; you and your sister have shown great poise and strength during this life after losing someone close to you. Moving forward is definitely the key to carrying their memory forward. Great idea and great place to start, with our children.

Hi Jennifer. On Oprah I could see the pain that you and your sister still feel. I am sending a brochure care/of the Kroc Corps. Community Center for you both. It contains verses from God's Word that will help you to cope now and realize that you will see your Mom, brother and nephew in the future. My name is Chris Shelton. I hope that you and your sister receive the brochure--Take Care

So, if u agree, u can email @ benaibrady@yahoo.com, if not i understand....Thanks in advance!!!
