The Same Kind Foundation was born from an important question:
"How can I make a difference? "
Launched from the overwhelming response to the NY Times best seller, Same Kind of Different as Me, the Same Kind Foundation has become the ‘911’ for homeless individuals and the agencies who serve them.
If you do not know the story, Ron Hall was a successful art dealer and his wife Debbie seemly had the perfect life. But their faith and family were tested by extreme pain. It was then an unlikely bond with a dangerous homeless drifter named ‘Suicide’ led them on a crazy journey.
The book is now a major motion picture starring Reneé Zelweger, Greg Kinnear, Djimon Hounsou, Jon Voight and Olivia Holt. (hailed by critics and audiences as ‘powerful’ and ‘inspiring’)
And now, Ron’s newest book, ‘Workin’ Our Way Home’ as told in both Ron and Denver’s unique voice about the incredible true story of the ten years they lived together after the original Same Kind story.
Buy the bundle and feed 18 folks struggling with homelessness.
Have you seen it? The sign?
The sign a person holds up at the corner of an intersection.
Hungry, need help.
Homeless Vet, out of work, need money and prayer.
Wife and dog kidnapped by Ninja’s…need $$ for Kung Fu lessons…I’d really like that dog back.
The reality is those cardboard messages are in fact a sign of something deeper.
According to a recent Baylor University study, “People don’t become homeless when they run out of money, at least not right away. They become homeless when they run out of relationships.”
Whether the signs are true – there are real people in real need of relationships and blessings...practical, physical, relational, emotional, and spiritual.
Here is just one way you can be that person who blesses.

THE GIFT OF ART
The founder of the Same Kind Foundation, Ron Hall, was a fine art dealer for forty years. Many of his friends have donated unwanted art that has resulted in big gifts, you can do the same!
Have an unwanted art piece? Email details (photos, size, info on artist, original sale price) to: Mark@InspiringGrowth.biz .
Those who have given stock to a non-profit organization know the secret. It is often more rewarding to transfer the stock to the charity than it has been to keep it all those years. One of the greatest benefits of transferring stock is that you no longer worry about their value. When you hold a stock, you may be concerned about the ups and downs of the market. When you transfer the stock – and the worries – to Same Kind of Different As Me Charitable Foundation, the restlessness stops and the rewards begin. Consult your investment or tax professional about benefits of transferring stock before making the gift.
