Billy’s campaignPosted by in Homelessness
Ever since I met Billy and his family, nothing has felt the same but for this family; their nightmare needs to come to an end. I sent my latest blog to the Huffington Post and I can only hope that they will publish it. In the meantime, there’s still a lot of work to do. I can only go online so many times to ask for donations and thanks to my good friend Vira, I started making pins to help with more fundraising to help Billy and Zincia get on their feet. I will be selling these pins for a whopping $3 a piece and all proceeds will be given directly to the family.
Losing your child because you can’t find help to avoid homelessness is unacceptable. Turning down KentHOPE when they tried to get the resource building in downtown Kent was a senseless yet deliberate decision on the part of the city and their Chamber of Commerce. These pins are a symbol of what happens when clueless people make decisions that directly affect people they don’t care about. Billy and Zincia’s baby boy, Journey Legatee Robbins would still be with us today if this family could’ve gotten help when they needed it. How many more children will die because there is no resource center for families in the city of Kent?
Let the Mayor’s office, the City Council and the Chamber of Commerce know that they are responsible for the death of an unborn child!
