Within each category, there are dozens of excellent and worthy projects, including assistance for hospice patients to keep their pets with them during their end-of-life care, student-led summer projects in Washington, DC, support groups for children who are victims of violence, and many others.
Many people living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) have great difficulty finding affordable housing that is non-toxic and healthy for them based on their illness and sensitivities to multiple environmental factors such a chemicals, fragrances, and even EMFs. My wife and I were ourselves affected by mold in our previous home, and now live in a mobile home as we search the country for a new healthy place to live.
Apropos of affordable and healthy housing for people with MCS, in the Food and Shelter Category, I highly recommend that you, dear Reader, consider clicking here to vote for James Van Raden's MCS affordable housing project, the laudable goals of which include:
- To construct safe affordable housing for people disabled by MCS.
- Utilize sustainable building practices in wind, solar & geothermal
- To pioneer green housing developments across the United States.
- To be an example in the building industry for others to follow.
- To develop co-housing communities that foster this initiative.
