Need in west central Illinois. The closest lupus support group in Illinois is in Chicago. There is a growing need to offer support groups, medical links to free or discount drug programs and promote awareness to this disease. I have been dealing with Lupus for 8 years. I have watched my mother battle this and lose her battle from complications. Women refer other ppl to me for advice, assistance in getting help, and support. Right now I act as a friend but I think its time I look into making a non for profit group.. any advice welcomed!!I like the idea of a grass-roots type, that acts as a wholelistic help based network. 2 years ago
Well…it all started in October when I was frustrated with my path in life. I wanted to make music. I’m dreamy, but I don’t pipe dream all my aspirations. I was really just trying to figure out how I could continue to do music and make it sustainable. I was a recent college grad (Class of ‘09), with a gloomy prospect of finding a “real” job. When you’re a musician, I swear everyone wants a piece of the pie. Everyone is out to screw you – especially the venues. It’s like…I’m brand new to this world but i have to have 25 ppl show up for me just so I can get a percentage of the door price. How the hell am I suppose to get 25 ppl when I don’t even have 25 fans to call my own? Not only that, I already poured all my savings into creating a demo, making copies, and making them look presentable, had business cards made, still trying to just work on my craft, etc, etc…. but at the end of the day…what was I doing? Why am I making music? I just wanted to play music. Of course it’s a nice feeling knowing ppl want to listen to you…but, if I can’t be heard at a venue, and the same musicians go to open mics all the time, how am I suppose to have a genuine fanbase?
So…I decided to sing at a food truck. That’s right, a food truck. And then I made up a lie and said I was from a collective called “Stop & Listen LA” which was BS because the collective was ME. But, somehow it clicked. I started to recruit more musicians at open mics and asked a few friends to starting busking with me in this project. I then thought I needed to protect it so I approached a lawyer, told him what I was doing and HE said…this should be a non profit!! He read my mind, but I couldn’t say it before because I thought it was crazy.
So many things have happened since. All the food trucks love the idea, musicians love the idea, and I just filed the articles of incorporation two days ago…which means Stop & Listen LA is a legal corporation. I hope to file the 1023 forms soon! So much to come!

My dad was diagnosed last year with pancreatic cancer, and he has been going through chemo and radiation but it is hurting him more than it is helping him, so i am trying to raise money so that my dad can go to the cancer doctor in phoenix and take alternative treatments.

I plan to start up a non profit organization international that will service both medical and dental to different countries. I need some donors so I can legitimize this mission I plan to do. Also you can volunteer and be part of this . I need people to be part of the org to accomplish the mission.

....but it’s highly worth it! My goal was to work in urban education, so I wrote the business plan, got the required paperwork approved by the city and state goverment, created a Board of Trustees, and started hiring. Now two years later, I’m running a large (> $4 million) and more importantly successful non-profit.

Hi all, I am a chinese, I live in China. I lived in Canada for 10 years, as 1 year in America. I speak both languages.

My goal is to help and improve people’s thinkings, so they will care each others a little, true to each other, have a heart.

My city has no comprehensive food security policy. I want to change that. It will be tricky, because there are lots of people with a stake in this particular area of “poverty alleviation” (not that they’re making much headway in alleviating poverty, of course)... I think that the solution is to create a non-profit lobbying group that pushes hard for policy that it then ensures is put into practice, to the benefit of all hungry people. 4 years ago
