An Gorta Mor

Ireland’s Great Famine or The Great Hunger, as it is more commonly referred to today, ranks among the worst tragedies in the sweep of human history. Between 1845 and 1850, approximately 1.5 million Irish men, women and children died of starvation or related diseases. By 1855, more than two million more fled Ireland to avoid a similar fate. This decimation of her population makes Ireland’s Great Hunger both the worst chapter in the country’s history, and arguably, the single worst catastrophe in 19th century Europe.

The Great Hunger    “An Gorta Mor”

The Hibernians of Division 11 in Nassau County have started on a project to erect a monument in remembrance of  “The Great Hunger”.  As free citizens it is important to remember all those who had to flee their homeland looking for a better life. Many made it to the USA and many died trying either in the crossing or soon after. Those Immigrants that did survive are the ones who built this great country, they deserve a monument.

The monument, will honor all those who were affected by the great hunger.

The Monument is dedicated to all who had emigrated due to hunger, religious persecution or oppression of any kind.

Assistance from individuals or organizations will be required to make this monument a reality. 

 

We are now getting bids for the monument. The size and color of the stone to be used as well as the final design are being determined and balanced against the price.

HELP MAKE THIS A PERMANENT PART OF THE COMMUNITY,

DONATE WHAT YOU CAN FOR THE MONUMENT.

CLICK  HERE TO DONATE to the Hunger Memorial Fund !

You should be proud that you helped place this monument to emigrants where it belongs.

A symbol that God Is with all of us.

Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation

WALK, RUN, BIKE-A-THON

6th Annual ‘Laps for Learning’

image4770September 24, 2011 

Each of us can help make a difference!

One of our projects is helping to keep the parochial schools open and attended.

Through Tomorrows Hope Foundation based in Rockville Centre NY we donate our time and energy to helping the 51 catholic Elementary Schools remain open on Long Island.

One great way is supporting the WALK-A-THON sponsored by Tomorrows Hope Foundation.

The School actually gets 50% of the amount sponsored in their name RIGHT BACK.

And a percentage comes back in scholarships for students and the rest improves the technology departments in the schools.

This is a link to Tomorrows Hope Foundation’s Holy Family Walk / Bike / Run-A-Thon page.

CLICK HERE – Todays Child is TOMORROWS HOPE – Please Sponsor a Child !

Just click on it or  copy and paste the link into your address bar.

You can sponsor a child in school for $10 and let them get additional sponsors or add more yourself.

They can even bring checks at  the event for payment.

Or you can click on a student’s name listed on the page and add to their goal.

I am hoping to get more supporters from Holy Family School.

Feel free to pass on this message.

Thank you

Jack

This is a great cause that needs our help!

Tomorrows Hope Foundation (THF) grants money to help families get and keep their children in Parochial Elementary school.

They give to students Grades 1 through 8, helping their family afford the private school tuition.

This helps keep the schools open.

Today’s Children are Tomorrows Hope!
