MERCY. Ever needed to erase the past? Rachel is a student of one of our Common Change members. Abandoned by her father at a young age, she ended up in a local homeless shelter. Aiming to save enough money to move into an apartment with friends, Rachel started looking for work. Some of the places she applied to made mention of the fact that they preferred their employees not to have tattoos. Her friend’s Common Change group gave her $179 towards the first three treatments (towards removing the small tattoo she had on her wrist) at a local medical facility. Imagine how many fresh starts you and a group of friends can be a part of if you become a member of a Common Change group and start committing a small amount of money to your group fund every month?
