Day 295: Urban Ministries of Durham
I received an email from Rosalinda yesterday mentioning an online game called Spent, she mentioned after playing for a few minutes, she had to quit. I was curious to see what this game was all about. The game challenges you to make it through a series of challenges for a month starting as an unemployed worker with a dwindling income. I made it though the month and had to make some tough decisions and still I had only $260 at the end of the month with a gas bill to pay and rent due. Many of the choices I had to make, reminded me of many of the decisions my mom had to make to keep a roof over our heads and food in the fridge. The game was created for Urban Ministries of Durham, a non-profit in North Carolina that provides for Durham’s homeless population. Rosalinda made a donation and I giving my daily donation to them as well.
At Urban Ministries of Durham they believe that no one should be without food, clean clothing or a safe place to sleep. They have created a welcoming, caring and compassionate environment where people can heal, find hope and begin to rebuild their lives. Their mission is to provide food, clothing, shelter, and supportive services to our neighbors in need.
Amount Donated: $5
