The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the LDS Church or, informally, the Mormon Church), was organized in 1830. As of 2010 the Church had a worldwide membership of approximately 14 million people. The Church headquarters is in Salt Lake City, Utah. Mormons believe the Bible and Jesus’s teachings in revelations to modern-day apostles and prophets. Mormons believe that their Church is the same as the original Church Jesus established when He was on the earth (see Ephesians 2:19–20; 4:11–14). The name “Mormon” is a nickname that comes from the Church’s belief in the Book of Mormon (ancient scripture revealed to and recorded by prophets in the Americas during the same time the Bible was being written in the Old World).more »

The American Lung Association is a voluntary health organization whose mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
The organization was founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis as the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis by Edward Livingston Trudeau, Dr. Robert Hall Babcock, Dr. Henry Martyn Hall, Dr. Lawrence Flick, and Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf. Earlier in 1892 Flick had founded the Pennsylvania Society for the prevention of TB, the world's first society dedicated to the prevention of TB. NASPT was Renamed the National Tuberculosis Association (NTA) in 1918, and then the National Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association (NTRDA) in 1968, it adopted its current name in 1973.
In 1907, the Lung Association began their Christmas Seal campaign to raise money for a small TB sanatorium in Delaware. Emily Bissell, a Red Cross volunteer at the time, created holiday seals to sell at the post office for a penny a piece. By the end of her fundraising campaign, she had raised more than ten times the amount needed to save the sanatorium and the tradition of Christmas Seals was born.more »

TE DOE FUND WAS FOUNDED IN 1985 IN MEMORY OF A HOMELESS WOMAN KNOWN ONLY AS “MAMA” DOE.
The Doe Fund’s innovations in social services have transformed the lives of tens of thousands of people with histories of homelessness, incarceration, poverty, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS. The seeds of the organization were sown more than thirty years ago in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. In the early- to mid-1980s homelessness in New York City had reached a crisis point. People sleeping on the street were often mistaken for garbage, crushed to death by traffic and in the backs of sanitation trucks. They were denied fundamental rights and dignity while the city as a whole was overrun with trash, crime, and drugs. George T. McDonald, then a garment industry executive, was determined to help in some way. He spent 700 nights in Grand Central Terminal, handing out sandwiches and clothing to the hundreds of homeless who slept there. One was a woman known only as “Mama.”
…this is a great sandwich, but I really wish I had a room to stay in and a job to pay for it. Although the men and women George helped were grateful for the meal, they expressed their desire for a job so that they could afford a room of their own and support themselves. It was becoming increasingly clear that food and clothing were not enough to bring about real change. On Christmas Day 1985, Mama died of pneumonia after being evicted by transit police into freezing temperatures early that morning. It was a turning point for George. He founded The Doe Fund that year in Mama’s memory to finally tackle the root causes of homelessness: lack of opportunity, skills, and support. Three years later, New York City’s rampant homelessness claimed another victim. April Savino had lived in Grand Central Terminal for several years before committing suicide at the age of 19. George delivered the eulogy at April’s funeral, which was also attended by screenwriter Harriet Karr. Harriet had been working on a screenplay about April when she received news of her tragic death. George and Harriet met that day and married six months later. Ever since, they have worked unceasingly to provide those in need with a path towards independence and prosperity.
In 1990 the McDonalds launched Ready, Willing & Able, a ground-breaking transitional work program and the nation’s first large-scale social enterprise. Designed to provide economic opportunity to homeless men, the program quickly proved equally effective in transitioning formerly incarcerated men into mainstream society. Ready, Willing & Able has since helped more than 22,000 men transform their lives. More than 30 years after Mama’s death, The Doe Fund has grown into a $61 million nonprofit that serves thousands each day through its programs. Mama’s memory is honored each Christmas Day with a candlelight vigil in Grand Central Terminal.more »
