Love 2 Yêu & Nailing It for Healthcare challenged cities across the nation to serve 1975 Meals To Heal from O.C. to NYC, from sea to shining sea, because this land is made for you and me…
All across the nation, American refugees, immigrants and their families are coming together to serve our fellow American heroes and heroines.
And you helped us reach our initial goal by gifting 2 Meals to Heal created by Heirloom LA and with delivery by Faith in Christ Ministries’ volunteers to service our front line service workers at local hospitals, police department, fire department, as well as those most vulnerable, including:veterans, emergency shelters, seniors, homeless shelters, the critically unemployed, food insecure children…and the list goes on, which is why we are not stopping…
For every $19.75 donated, you feed 2 people. Let’s continue to nail it together and feed ANOTHER 1975 heroes and those most vulnerable in Los Angeles!
1n fact, “1975“ has meaning because it marked a memorable year for Vietnamese Refugees, which is how this movement kicked off by the Vietnamese Americans in the Nail Salon Industry. When the stay-at-home order and social distancing took place, it closed the doors of their businesses which hit them very hard like many industries out there. But a new door opened, they took this opportunity to serve their communities by packing all their masks and gloves and delivering them to local hospitals.Restaurateurs started to join the movement with them. Parents also worked with their children to write Thank You cards to their everyday heroes. And here we still are.
We feel what better way to honor those that fought for our freedom than to support the local restaurants to feed these men and women today, and to express our deepest gratitude by saying Thank You to those who are fighting everyday for our health and very lives. While we know you, too, might still be going through a financial hardship, we are asking for a little extra sacrifice, for the very difficult sacrifice by these wonderful men and women, who keep working everyday to care for us and our loved ones. We love America and we want to continue to make it beautiful.
We thank all our heroes from the bottom of our hearts and thank America for making this nation our home.
