What a Facebook “Like” button has to do with interior design and helping fight poverty

While it might not seem like poverty is a subject that comes up frequently when one is discussing Fairfield County, Connecticut, it is a very real issue.  Did you know: 30% of people in Bridgeport live below the Federal Poverty Level 400 people a day are fed in a homeless shelter in Norwalk 1700 people are homeless in Bridgeport on any given night Thankfully, there is Near and Far Aid, an all-volunteer fundraising and fund granting organization, dedicated to eliminating the causes and effects of poverty in Fairfield County.  A 28-member Board personally visits, evaluates and provides support to over 130 non-profit agencies fighting poverty in this area.  I am grateful to be a part of this organization.
