Rebuilding The Man
Last month, a donor gave BOND a year-end matching donation gift of $30,000 and we had until January 30th to match it. Thanks to you, we’ve just matched and surpassed our goal! We’ve raised a total of $45,890.07. Thank you for what you’ve done and continue to do to help us rebuild men and families. We have a lot of work to do, and you are making it possible; we don’t take it for granted. Thank you and God Bless.
There are several key issues facing men in today’s society
According to studies, 1 out of every 3 children in the U.S. live without their biological father; children who grow up without their father are more likely to suffer from emotional problems, abuse alcohol and drugs, quit school, and are likely to become poor.
Anger is an understandable response for young men with poor upbringing, but as an adult we are responsible for overcoming it. A blaming and victim mentality grows when we refuse to do so, and victimhood has become an epidemic in today’s America.
The victim mentality grows a sense that a debt is owed by society to the victim. Therefore he is justified in “taking back” in a misguided attempt to even the score. Crime, likewise, is raging out of control in our society.
