Share Some Love

Share Some Love in February! Support Britepaths' Financial Assistance Fund.
Help a local family in need to stay in their home and regain their financial footing.

We never know what life will throw at us, and sometimes it is too much to handle on our own. Britepaths' Financial Assistance Fund is a life-line for approximately 300 Fairfax County area families in need each year.

When there is nowhere else to turn in a crisis, they can turn to Britepaths to help them catch up on their rent, keep the heat and lights on, or make vital car repairs to ensure they can get to work.

With your support, we could help so many more families who we are currently forced to turn away. Our goal is to raise $10,000 this month to assist 33 additional families with a typical grant of $300 each. The more funds we raise, the more families we can help.

February is the month of love. Please donate now to our Share Some Love campaign. And give even more love by sharing our campaign page.

We also welcome checks! Mail to Britepaths, 4080 Chain Bridge Rd., 2nd Floor, Fairfax, VA 22030. Write "Share Some Love" or "Financial Assistance" in the memo line.

***Update as of 2/28: We have also received $1,625 in donations in the mail and through our web site! Thank you to everyone who is supporting our effort to help more families in need in our community!***
