The purpose of the Good Friday
Walk, Inc. is to aid financially the poor and hungry.
- The purpose and activities
of the Good Friday Walk, Inc. are to raise money for the poor.
- We shall conduct an annual
sponsored walk on or near Good Friday and receive donations, through
solicitations, throughout the year.
- In the North Shore area,
we shall assist the needy in housing, utilities bills, food, clothing
and other essentials of life. The needy shall be identified by welfare
agencies, advocates of the poor, churches and knowledgeable persons,
i.e., those of us who know the individuals and their need.
- We shall support and encourage
shelters and soup kitchens, but not as a major contributor because they
are capable of raising funds on their own.
- We shall donate to Third
World Self-Help Projects and Missionaries in the Bush, who are feeding,
clothing and educating the poorest of the poor.
- We shall respond to major
disasters whenever possible
- All our donations will be
given speedily, generously and with love for our poor.
- In 2005, 90% of the money
raised stayed right here on the North Shore for rent assistance, utility
bills, food and heating bills. Seven percent was given to those in dire
need outside our area, such as the Hurricane Katrina and Tsunami victims
- This is a charity where
you can be assured that no money is wasted. We have no salaries, office
space or expense account. Everyone helping to organize the Good Friday
Walk is a volunteer. Expenses are only taken out to pay for printing,
paper, postage and now our website. In 2005, this only added up to 3%
of the operating budget.
