CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THE 11/11 PLEDGE?

A couple of years ago, we did what we called the 11/11 Pledge as a fundraiser to have people donate $11 and ask 11 of their friends to do the same. It’s now developed into a process where we pledge to give 11 homes in 11 weeks between Sept. 11 and Veteran’s Day each year.
