Golden Rule Charity delivers timely help to people in need.
Here are a few stories from grant recipients we have been proud to help.
Simon Morales received $1,000 as a joyful grant and 16 years’ service as a dishwasher. The funds were raised at the Golden Foodie Awards. "Thank you very much! This is the first time someone has given me money and my heart is full of gratitude! The money will be used to pay the tuition at university for my son. God bless Golden Rule Charity and everyone at Villa Roma".
