Breathing Life into Community
BLINC wants to help Communities respond to the hurt and concerns in communities over racial injustice. The CIRCLES project can help YOUR community join forces with another to deepen community ties, and find ways to help those in great need of Loving care and tangible good works. Contact us here to learn more. A $10,000 gift will provide the resources for national provider GENERIS to help your community understand the dynamics of your local “CIRCLE” radius, and as you identify another “CIRCLE” can help with the local community analysis through demographics, generosity culture dialogue and a set of ideas to help you get started. A $100,000 sponsorship can identify and jump start multiple CIRCLES in your region for even greater impact. We encourage you to find a local community cause and get involved!

This a community discussion, so jump on our Facebook page (click the link below) and tell us how you are creating community, how you are involved and voice your opinion too!

When Community Falls Apart
