To the Board of Transitions Charitable Fund:
I wish to extend my sincere thanks for your contribution to my life. During the last year in which your foundation funded my stay, I have regained my life. One of the lessons I have learned is the value of support and giving. I truly value your gifts for they far surpass mere money but equate to a life of sobriety.
Over the last 12 years I have struggled with addiction boarding on the verge of death. I have been through many rehabs and sober living establishments but never could reach a state of sobriety for more than a few months. I feel for the first time in my life I can maintain a steady course. This is due to first to my desire to be sober which I have had often in the past but never had the means to fully concentrate upon “being sober.” This is the gift your foundation has extended to me and others.
By having the means to live in a sober community I was able to regain faith in myself, reunite with my family and to begin the process of dreaming of a new and better future. Starting this journey at age 26 as a homeless and hopeless man, I now find myself connecting with a passion to assist others in recovering their life. For those who read these brief words, I ask you to pay it forward by donating to this foundation. To those who have contributed in the past and thus provided me with the opportunity to rejoin life, my sincere and heartfelt thanks!
Living Life with Dignity and Sobriety
