    The Oasis Day Center

    I have not made a difference yet, but I am working on it! The Oasis Day Center homeless shelter in Decatur, IL has lost $160,000 worth of state funding, because of which they may have to close their doors. If we lose the Oasis, it would be devastating to the homeless, and could have serious affects on our community. I wanted to let you know about an internet posting I created. It is on the website Wish Upon A Hero http://www.wishuponahero.com/wishes/?id=33713 I posted regarding the Oasis Day Center, and I added a link where people around the world can donate if they so desire to do so. The payments would be sent securely through Paypal on the internet, which I will then transfer directly to the Oasis management. Please help me spread the word. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! http://cbha.wordpress.com/2008/05/09/gov-blagojevich-slashes-decatur-homeless-shelter-funding-local-leaders-try-to-fill-the-gap/ Sincerely, Tammy Bledsaw
