Please pray for my family. My Mom's cousin was taken by ambulance tonight to a Tulsa hospital. She takes care of her Mom who is in her 90s and in bad health. She also takes care of her Brother in his 60s I believe who has diabetes. She has been diagnosed with Double Pneumonia and is currently being tested for COVID 19. She has not been out traveling except taking her Brother to dialysis and getting essential. We believe this is community spread at this point.

I can't stress it enough to take care of yourselves and stay indoors.

I will see you all at seven in the group called Twas the night before Christmas CST 7 PM. You are loved by me of no one else. We have a lot of angels/volunteers and are beyond blessed with those that go out of their way to take their time to help somebody that literally makes zero dollars per year and just does this out of the kindness of my own heart for you and it’s because those trucks were donated to the nonprofit I decided to open 5 years ago almost to the very exact date.

Toy drive update:
Looking to adopt 8-14 yr old boy
Can I get an AMEN?! Call me 512-496-5830 🙏⭐️✅❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Tiffany Lewis

For the free Nintendo switch:
1.) CALL ME
2.) Make an appointment today or tomorrow to show up at 2115 Garden Street. It’s a purple house. Bring your child. I want to hand it to who god tells me is the right person, plus I’m an Empath.

We specifically bought these gifts not knowing who they were meant for but I know in my heart I completely nailed it! Every gift matches the core act children. I promise. 100% accurate.
It’s exactly what they wanted! Psychic or instinct...
❤️I don’t care what you call it, but CALL ME ⭐️512-496-5830
I WOKE UP TO A PORCH OF MORE GIFTS (toddler) and kids of both sizes and boy or girl. More are coming today and tomorrow I need you to start meeting me now so when all the gifts arrive I can make sure you have the best Christmas ever. 🎄🎉🙏

⭐️🙏🙏🙏Here’s my gut feeling:

Family 1: I have a boy that need adopted. Come to PFPO, check on and I’ll know if it’s meant you you. I believe he has autism. Just a guess.

Family 2: girl age 3-ish Call me. Make an appt to show up at PFPO. Check on online. Probably not a single mom. I don’t want to be taken advantage of so please call and make an appointment. I know in my heart who the presents are for.

Family 3: I have an 8-14 year old boy and I know what he’s in to. Disney, marvel, Comic-Con, trucks, airbuds (The exact ones I bought)and etc.
⭐️Call me make an appt and come over. I’ll know when I meet you. I want to help 🙏you have the best Christmas ever.
🎄🎉If I could I would literally show up with actual Santa bags like I did on 2018.

Family 4: girl age early teens or maybe 10-12 like marvel, DC? Captain America video games etc. Earbuds, I nevlibe theze might be the one that really wants airbuds. She’s a gamer and loves lbgtq. PFPO already bought your gifts or they were donated to us. If you’re going to complain about a boys toy being wrapped in baby pink wrapping paper, don’t call me. To the person that know this is thier daughter... Where are you? Call me. Make an appointment. I want to meet you.

Family 5: it’s a single lady going through a very different time and had a lot of loss and I will make your Christmas better. ❤️❤️❤️
There are still gifts coming until 6pm tomorrow. After that I’m going to do the annual reading of “T’was the night before Christmas” at 7pm CST it will a messenger group. I will attach the link

Family 6: boy age 7-8 someone might be raising someone else’s kids bc CPS removed them from the mother. Who and where are you? Please call me and make an appointment to see if you are who god tells me is getting those gifts.

This isn’t a challenge or competition. We literally do this every year. I’m just running behind because the gifts won’t stop showing up from Amazon. I have all the way until like 8PM CST on CHRISTMAS EVE TO FIND ALL OF THESE FAMILIES, DO THE ANNUAL READING NEED TO MEET YOU IN PERSON. THIS IS ME DOING WHAT I AM TOLD BY GOD. MU INTUITON AND EMPATH ABILITES HWLP ME READ YOU. I COMMUNIVATE EMOTIKBALLY. I AM HUMBLE. ITS BREAKING MY HEART THAT I CANT adopts 6 kids in the next two days and bless them with all this.
Y’all don’t even want to help yourself.
If you are like that- don’t call me. Or show up and I’ll just know.

Hi everyone! I hope you are as excited as I am! Today is OUR DAY. Finally! Thank you GOD! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I have been going live every few hours keeping you all updated. We literally only get ONE day a tear to raise funds as a nonprofit and FB will match them if you donate to the very specific and clearly labeled #pensforpals fundraiser for #givingtuesday2020
Please watch the videos to learn more. We need your help because I can’t handle any more su***des and murders over tents being a lifestyle choice VS being forced put of the legacy you built. I know I’m blunt and I’m sorry if that offends you but that’s how serious I am. ALL OF THE TIME. Especially, when we’re talking about this nonprofit that we all came together to build. I remember every one of you from the first day I opened and incorporated PFPO. I need you guys to help me spread the word far and wide on every platform possible please. Don’t let this flop. Make it go viral. PLEASE. thank
Thank you and mahalo, as always 🌺
From ALL of us at PFPO and from me as the founder, I am Tiffany Castillo (soon to be Tiffany H. Lewis) and the worlds bad inspired me to do more good and I always come out on top because I have a positive stride and have aeeen note than my fair share of disasters and miracles. I have changed. This is me bow asking you kindly
To please help me help themselves if they do choose to do so, in good stewardship fashion, of course, and with the grace of god. Come on prayer warriors I need you too!

This is going to be a long read... get cozy because I think you’ll enjoy this. ❤️Please read our cause and mission, like follow share etc.!
We are going to start building more communities with this years #givingtuesday2020 #GivingTuesday #pfpo2020 PLUS help end homelessness, which will lower crime rates, prevent more su***des, and on top of all of that, literally anyone that wants to live in the community we are building for those that are willing and able to contribute to this project will be building it for themselves and thier future generations and with our help and resources, we will contribute to replicate this project in every part of every city where I see the same problem and NO solutions. I’m not saying ours is perfect but at least it’s a solution, it’s long term and will eventually become self sustaining.
⭐️I’m looking very far into the future and today we’re digging and planting roots. So.. I’m going to be blunt, I may rant (sorry) and I know I have a lot to say but this will hopefully tell you everything you need to know about why you should choose to donate to this cause over all of the other wonderful nonprofits.
💛Our only problem: we have all the resources but lack manpower and people lack motivation, so I became motivational! 🙏🔥🔥I turned into that motivation into a literal entity with my mission, soul, blood, sweat and tears. Alone. Then WE backed “we” about 3 hours later. That was 5 years ago and we are PFPO Pens for Pals Organization, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
💓We are volunteers 💚 most of us specialize in distraerá, trauma, search and rescue, are first responders, and others that share one thing.... God and a clear conscious not to be confused as intermingling religion with a nonprofit.
✅ We are the ones you pray about that see you and rescue you in the middle of a disaster.
✅ We are also the ones you pray to god you never have a face to face with ever because the CEO and founder of this NPO, PFPO, well, I guess that means you’ll be seeing me at 3am in a world where you never want to hear about and can’t handle the thought of, yet, ironically myself and you took an oath not to say a word about it, so?.... Mic drop 🎤
☺️There’s that piece too. I am a humble being I assure you, but it’s takes a certain level of anger that comes from a place not even demons can take from you to do this job and I didn’t ask for it but you will never see me complaining. Watch. ❤️✅

✅We are the ones that are STILL rebuilding from Hurricanes Harvey, Michael, Florence and at least a half a dozen more natural disasters in the last few years; we are also the quiet ones that love harder than you can fight.
I opened this nonprofit as a direct result of Facebook live su***des. We went global within hours. I have always been transparent. Volunteers please contact me; this is happening fast. ❤️This is also an SOS for help.
✅Anyone in the entire world that wants to watch (or align with my small army of volunteers and join us for this movement).... or change what has become the following situation: basically everyone is homeless, jobless, angry, tired, hungry, and also now our neighbors are living on the streets, in tents. It’s overwhelming and it ends right now.
✅The streets are not a home, this isn’t right. Fortunately for us, we have been given an opportunity and the resources for the —->> #construction of just the first of MANY communities that we are about to actually begin building.
⭐️In order for that to happen, we need your generosity for just one day this year. It’s called #GivingTuesday and it’s the only day all year that Facebook or ANY platform has ever given us or every other NPO on the planet a day devoted to our hard work. They give us a chance. I give people chances everyday and people give them to all of us. This year, we’ll exceed our goals I’m sure because this is meant to be.
⭐️✅We give everyone chances or at least a choice on top of donations (including those very tents we are moving)... we do this literally all everyday (dormilones sleep happens) ✅✅✅but we only get ONE day a year to overwork ourselves so hard to get y’all pumped up at all the greatness we’re going to bring to a city bear you too next.... and “I” have to ask for it. It’s called #givingtuesday
I have no price, zero pride or ego so that’s awesome to me. ❤️Thank you #facebook for this one day where you are going to double our donations and we can use them to begin construction.
✅ Who’s done seeing tents (regardless of your reasons)? Why ate there no solutions, I pondered; so I came up with one. 🍒
Let’s build some houses. A community starting with a literal buy a piece of land and build a self sustaining community hand in hand with the community.
I have the supplies but need volunteeers. Any takers? Okay... please donate and I’ll hire people to help when we are in a position to. Right bow we need your support and volunteers.
🔥Either way we ARE building an actual community/neighborhood of, for and with all those willing and able to do thier own due diligence, are devoted to this project and community and want a forever home for a nominal monthly fee based on income.
Here’s the catch: you have to want it bad enough to help me help you have it. ✅
🙏🙏We have to raise money to buy land and permits, and cover all the
extra red tape and unforeseen expenses for this project, BUT these houses in these communities will be built by and made by hand by all those that want to help us help you improve your life/situation.
We are offering a potential solution an opportunity to excel, and all while creating a community because we AlL HAVE to work together and with us. #pensforpals #texasstrong #pfpo #teamwork #community
❤️So..... Let’s build some houses and make them semi self-sustainable (just for now... it will get better in time).
We will continue to work with our partners who may donate solar panels. ⭐️By adding free solar panels everywhere and windmills, we can provide fresh clean air anf water.
Let’s plant our own vegetables/gardens, grow our own trees that bear fruit and learn now to grow our own produce food/crops.
🤗How about farms? What if you all worked together and PFPO had the supplies? Would you be willing to get up and help me help you do that?
Would you toss that aside as you have your hope, or would you dive in. I’ll wait.
Meanwhile... I can say that I am in Texas and trying to help move the homelessness in Texas to a place that we buy and build so there no need for homelessness. But, I need your help. The trucks are one call away and we can begin construction. I have mapped out areas such as Bastrop to build these communities in. I’m talking about a hand up though, not a hand put. You have to help if you want to live here for the rest of your life and get to pass it down to future generations, creating your very own legacy.
World, Austin, Texas, and everyone else too.... we need your support to help us build the first community. I will be blunt because I like transparency. We will get the tents off of the streeets, everyone that wants a better life will get to build one. We will provide almost everything and they will pay thier own rent and contribute so that they care as much about not just the houses and the commUNITY that we just built but because I just bagged you the future and I need you to care that much about it that it would make you crazy at the thought of losing it because it’s yours. YOU BUILT IT TOGETHER. That’s the gist of it for those that WANT to help themselves succeed, we will work with you, provide for you and keep replicating this project over and over again in every other city with this amount of rage over it. You have to help us build your houses if we provide the materials. You want to live there then prove it. Pitch in because it takes a village to raise a child but it only takes one hard headed woman to build communities out of tents in the middle of the biggest (words I will not use this one time) I never wanted to see and pray to god’s I never have to witness again. That would be this pandemic. I’ve seen it rip Licea apart faster than hurricane Katrina took down all those houses in Louisiana and it motivated me to work harder and faster if my competition is just nothingness. So please keep reading if I still have your attention and learn more. Sorry it’s long but necessary.
This miracle you are all going to watch me turn into reality in the coming months and years, is kind of genius to be honest. The system is broken. Time to make a new one. I assure you I am on a mission and I will not give up on this city even though you gave up on me and each other. It’s time for you all to RISE and UNITE if you want positive change. Let’s work together and build some houses. I happen to know where there’s resources for that and it won’t cost you a dime if this fundraiser works. Contractors and volunteers please CALL me. People with offers or suggestions, please email us.
Let’s start building your houses guys! It’s time to stop the spread of homelessness now and you have to contribute to your own success. Those pf you that don’t want help, kindly step aside and make way for those that want to help us help themselves.
Tenants: You will pay a small amount of rent each month based on your income, become gainfully employed (if capable) and you have my word I do not judge or care about your past as long as you aren’t a criminal. I will know of you are because we are very well vetted volunteers. I don’t care about your past. I only care how far you are willing to go to help me push this nonprofit beyond it’s breaking point, surpass every obstacle that the city will do, use against us, try to prevent us from doing or ant other type of obstacle that we WILL overcome. Let them try and shut us down. Believe me, I’m more angry than them and I use my anger to do only good things so that makes me one of the most ardent people on this planet. That also ensures your future stability. I am not a quitter. You will see.
Homeowners, how does that sound? Would you like to be one instead of living in a tent? Are you willing to help build your own houses and agreee to some common terms and conditions for everyone’s safety? Safety does and will always come first. Not much gets past me, this isn’t my first time and I can spot you a mike away if you’re coming koooking for something for nothing it to complain that you didn’t get enough free whatever I happened to generously be giving you for free that one day. When you do that everyday all the days are the same; that’s why I’m such an optimist.

Rules and regulations will be put in place. This is also sober living. Please let that sink in if you are reading this from the inside of a tent right now. Violence won’t be tolerated either. We have programs just like everyone else, the only difference is that I get things done bot sit around and wait forever; there is clearly no “end in sight”. That’s when we stepped in. My core and entire being will bot allow me to sit here and just watch this and do nothing. Ready to join me yet?
We will provide every program that works (including but not limited to mental health, healthcare, food, clothing, resources, etc.) and create more programs that will help where those in place, fail or lack whatever it takes to make it successful. The answer is you.
Each of us must live with the consequences of our choices and actions. You have always had at least two choices. In time we will show you what you didn’t see and why this works. Some of you were forced out of your homes. We will comfort you and there is a very special place in my heart for you because I know how it feels.

I don’t think enough people realize how one thing leads to another. You force me out of my house and just forget me in life I am clearly going to be homeless and angry at the very least so please take a deep breath because this is a fresh slate and no red tape project.
This is how we do things at PFPO. No matter what it takes.
..But we won’t work with just anyone that doesn’t actually know the difference between a choice leading to making better choices and decisions to improve your life VS being forced out financially. If you have pride or ego this community is probably not for you but I’m going to push you to try harder anyways, and, if you give it a few weeks of trying you’ll understand why and that wisdom is an interesting element.

I know that I was actually put on this earth to create solutions and have a HUGE impact or make a big difference in certain peoples lives and paths. So, believe me, you won’t find a more devoted NPO. That gird for all of our programs and projects. You have my whole heart and soul. I don’t half-ass anything.

Here we go:
I’m here to help you Austin. Help me help you. To our supporters: thank you. Deeply and honestly; thank you. I need your support to get these supplies here and get this community built fast, but we can’t do that without your financial backing. We welcome every opportunity and will consider your offers.
We have to buy land to build on and get permits. Everything else has literally been donated to PFPO.
Who wants to help? Contact me.

Please share this. I’ve never been more serious about anything. Austin Texas, I see you and I am here with you. I have been for long enough to see what’s wrong and how to fix it so let’s do this together. Call me, text me, PM me, I don’t really check email.... but whatever you do, reach out. I can’t give you a hand up if you don’t lift your arm and are capable of it.
So.. this is me and my nonprofit, PFPO calling you now because it’s time to flip this back around and make it right like the system should’ve set it up the first time so that it wouldn’t have failed on us all now.
Give this a share if you hear me, see it, want it to stop getting worse by spreading, and want to help give so many people the opportunity if a lifetime JUST because I care that much even if you don’t care. Give it a share if it angers you or literally just comes into your feed because the word needs to be spread far and wide. This is an impact we are building; a legacy. This is just the first of the many communities that will obviously follow just by reproducing the first one. I learned very early on that you must always be transparent if you own a nonprofit.

The reason I am building this first community in Austin Texas is because that’s where we are located/home base. We have other volunteers in other locations, yes. But at times like this, we all come to wherever the disaster is and work together. Austin, you have me the vision and strength to actually create PFPO and you have kept it successful for five years so I’m here for you first. Thank you for the love that you are continually giving me. Thank you for giving PFPO the opportunity to thrive and for all that you continue to do for us.
Austin and Texas: Your support, generosity, and kindness in good stewardship fashion means everything.

So here’s the problem:
There are tons of tents that have become homes on the streets and at dangerous intersections and honestly this is just not okay and it has gone on long enough. We’re ready and able help fix it. Problem is that with that problem came two more at least. Crimes and su***des increased as well and people are feeling helpless ok too of hopeless with not much left to lose. Let that sink in.

Problem 2:
Those of you committing crimes when some of these people came from prominent lifestyles or whatever thier past is and that is none of your business until it is. Stop making it worse by adding more murders and you are who I am coming for first. You’re getting relocated for the public’s safety. I wish I could tell you all everything I do or am or know, but that is honestly all I am able to say. Yes I realize that contradicts transparency.
I truly hope you read this to the end because I Venice it will help you understand me and this nonprofit better and in a way I’ve never explained before.

Solution: give people an opportunity and the resources and ask them to help and if/when they do choose to abuse it and spit it back at me well that’s on them. There’s still another group of people that actually want to help themselves so call me.

I am planting a tree (metaphorically and literally in this community) to become the roots that form into stems to trees. Those trees will produce healthy fruit. Watch. Those houses in that community on the land we will buy to build on, will literally be built by hand by only those that want this bad enough. Then they get the gift of stability and assurance for the rest of their lives and their following generations would’ve never been given before. I know a lot about people so I think you will surprise me and I am super excited 😊
THAT is how I change the world. Please dig deep and contribute to this project.

We have supplies and a demand and trucks on the way. I need volunteers and donations to buy the land and help cover construction and any other unforeseen related costs. That’s it. The rest will be built by and with PFPO and anyone that doesn’t want to live that lifestyle anymore. Regardless if they were forced into it or not. I’m not one to judge. We are all equally standing side by side United by blood sweat and tears if that’s what it takes; and it will. We WILL build this community in the coming year. If you want to live here and are able to read this then you are able to help in some way to the success of this project.
It will change your life completely. You’ll get to own your own home because you’ll get that chance no one else will give you.

I pray this falls into the right eyes and weighs on the hearts of those it is meant to impact and I hope that everyone living in a tent in Austin (not by choice, is sober, etc.) and everywhere else as a direct result of COVID is able to come forward and let us know you’re there so I can tell you that I see you and I came to help.

So... let’s start building the home of your dreams. Ok land will eventually supply free good and has a ton of windmills and solar panels so we don’t have to pay for things like electricity. You will become educated and gainfully employed if you want this. Those that aren’t able and/or vets are the only exceptions. Want a free-ish house fully furnished with everything you ever wanted and all you have to do is literally help me build it?
Contact me.

Thank you!

I literally make zero dollars a year and every penny donated gets to go directly to this project and Facebook promises to match those donations on this ONE DAY A YEAR.
As the founder and CEO of PFPO I can promise you that this is the “biggest”day of the year for a NPO because it’s the only 24 hours where the world is generous and Facebook is kind enough to double it.
It’s like winning the lottery three times in one hit. I get to build a community and get these tents off the streeets and lower su***de and crime rates, these people get the opportunity of a lifetime and all I need them to be is willing and able to help.
❤️
Three: Facebook will double what you donate. So literally every dollar counts and I assure you I can break down these construction costs to the very penny, am looking for note partners if you’d like to, have unlimited resources for construction, and I believe in THIS WILL WORK. Because it forces a bunch of strangers to work together to build something they get to begin a lineage and I literally placed windmills, solar panels, and at the very least planted the apple tree to build fruit 30 years from now so that they have fresh and free food, fresh clean air and oxygen, and that is what a community is. Togetherness. Apparently it takes a NPO to build a community so let’s do this. Remember that they will have to depend on each other, learn how to work together and how beautiful that will look and feel knowing that THEY did that together. We are merrily a vessel of blesssings. I do not question what is asked of me to do on this earth. I ser a problem and i have yo fix it or at least make it better than it was before. That’s why we do many programs and appear all over the map. We do disaster relief and I surely see a disaster.
We are front line- boots on the ground CONSTANTLY stepping forward and up and we will build this WITH you Austin, Texas.

Then I will literally replicate it in other locations and city by city will become state to state and a movement just happened. I just created the future solution to what’s wrong with the “state programs and why don’t they work?” I promise you that it’s all because I want the world to know that I will not back down, I will fight for you even when you quit, and I am here to help but YOU need to help too if you want in, so to speak.
We want eager people to know thier own worth and the value of the gift of two willing hands. I supply you with things to build with and all you have to do is try. I must put my complete faith in you that you won’t be greedy like everyone else and I also must stay humble so I do not ever become “jaded”. I am doing ALL of everything that I do (which I’m sure at this point you know is about a million things a day against my will but because it’s for the greater cause and I literally can’t NOT)..

As for this particular project, like I said, Austin has become overwhelmed with homelessness, that is causing homicides to increase, more depression, su***de rates have tripled, etc.
I do not know one person that hasn’t directly been affected by this pandemic and neither do they, so, we have that in common already, and that my friends this is called our platform from which we will rise from and build UP from.
As ONE city that wants to help itself if I literally give you everything for free to do it.
Do I have your attention yet?
Also anyone that contributes to this is ANY way, well, you get to have a secret now knowing that you made it possible for people to help themselves and now you have the wisdom that we are just a vessel that was somehow chosen to take this on. That vessel is me. That is why I switch between we and me or I VS “we” in literal conversation.
I must say we as an NPO because WE are an entity and there are a lot of “me”’s that have been here through this entire journey and as we stride right into 2021 and also year #5 for #pensforpals 💖, we ALL get to do that knowing that we just inspired a ton of homeless people to get up and help themselves (for those of you that like transparent and blunt).
There is no competition because this isn’t a race, it’s a movement. I will give them what they need to move if they only want to help thier own family tree/lineage or are just creating one because I am talking about forever homes. Not rentals. No. Legacies; what you built and pass down to yours.
Feel free to ask me any question; I’m an open book.

I know what it must feel like to know that they did this all by themselves, all they needed was someone to care just enough to fight for those trucks and materials and ask my own friends and family for donations to contribute to this project because I care so much about them and this worldwide issue that NO ONE ELSE IS FIGHTING TO PUT AN END TO OR EVEN OFFER EVERYONE HOPE. A “do-over but do it right the first time” again.
The systems in place don’t work and those aren’t solutions those are called shut people up got a few minutes. That is why PFPO and the work I do I have to carry it without being able to tell most people much which I also know makes me look shady but I literally can’t say every single thing that I do because some people don’t want honor or to brag. I am one of them. I love the facts that I get to help so many people and honestly no one had a clue. I love that. Take one look at me and judge me, it’s okay. I can see further; into thecuryure and I know in my heart that this is a movement forward.

As a forward thinker this is my pitch. I hope it was a decent read and I got my point across clearly. In case I have not made it extremely clear what u am raising money got, it’s to build a literal community of about 25 houses or so. Houses people will get to own but will have to work for it and help build it. You won’t see me because I truly value anonymity and also because of other programs that we offer. I’m not trying to be the frontman for PFPO. PFPO is the entity and it is the solution to many things. We’re just one call away. Don’t get offended if I can’t answer; imagine having the one phone number that rings a million times a day everyone wanting something from you and there’s only one me. So who would like to volunteer?
Also, as an added bonus every single person that donates to PFPO #GivingTuesday #pfpo2020 #givingtuesday2020 #together #resources or helps in any way gets to pass that kindness down to thier future generations, so it must be in your DNA to see what I see and want to help. Im SO excited to get to work with you if I still have your attention.
