in October 2010 Nominees, Spread Your Warmth

It’s Day 3 and we are half way through our “6 after 6″ nominees for the October edition of Sweatshirt Blanket’s Spread Your Warmth campaign. Today’s nominee was from the June contest and hails from the Queen City.

A Better World

The sixth nominee for this month’s campaign is A Better World. Their mission is to transform the community (specifically the Ashley Park and surrounding area in Charlotte, North Carolina) and its families through its youth (K-12) by building their mental, emotional and spiritual character.

A Better World was born out of a heart that is burdened to help the under resourced. In January 2001, with the help of Forest Hill Church and many others, they started an after-school program to improve the lives of the downtrodden, and give a sense of community to our neighbors. As is often the case with children who come from broken homes affected by single-parent rearing and impoverished conditions, children lack a strong identity with role models.
