Help Create, Install, and Maintain Heeding God’s Call's Memorial to the Lost

Heeding God’s Call Memorials to the Lost have been and are effective for galvanizing faith communities and people of faith  to stop the calamity in all neighborhoods and in the locations where the Memorial has been installed. We know the Memorial has touched the lives and hearts of countless numbers of people throughout Philadelphia, Harrisburg and locations in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC.  To learn more about the Memorial to the Lost please click on the tab  for Memorial to the Lost on the left side of this page, or click here.

In order to continue and to grow this sacred work, we need your help.  You can directly help Heeding and the neighborhoods and communities we serve by investing in the creation of, installation of, and caring for a tee-shirt in a 2015 Memorial to the Lost.  Your donation of $50 will ensure that a tee-shirt honoring a victim of gun violence will be raised and cared for.  A donation of $125 will do the same for three victims.  You may donate through the donate tab above, use this link, or you may send a check to Heeding God’s Call at the address listed here.  Please designate on your check “Memorial to the Lost”.

Thank you and Blessings to All!
