The Story

To my community and supporters:

I never thought in a million years I would be writing this or belong to the groups I am now a member of.  My daughter, Paige Elizabeth Mazurek, walked on this earth 22 years, 8 months and 19 days before she went heaven on March 30, 2015.  Paige was my youngest of five.  

My nightmare began on February 15, 2010.  At seventeen, Paige needed a root canal.  The doctor prescribed opiates.  She got her first taste.  As teenage girls do, Paige met a boy.  But this boy, he introduced her to heroin.  Her addiction quickly spiraled out of control.  As many addicts do, Paige had several stints in both jail and rehab.  Paige would come out with her faith in God renewed and a zest for sobriety.  But heroin had its hold.  After a few months Paige would relapse.  It was a painful cycle for us all.  Paige was one of 16 that lost their life that week in Oakland County from an overdose.  Her heroin was laced with a toxic level of fentanyl.  

Paige's death was a tragic loss for me.  But God has a plan in even the most trying of times.  Losing my daughter inspired me to create a new 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax deductible, public charity geared towards awareness and recovery from opiate addiction.  From this was born Paige's PROMISE.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP


As we have just launched Paige's PROMISE, our start-up costs are insurmountable for our Board of Directors to fund on our own.  To better serve our audience, Paige's PROMISE needs to purchase a domain name, develop a website,  procure non-profit business software, trademark our logo, promote our Facebook page and get office supplies.  This is where you come in.  Donate now to help us raise the $3,000 needed to begin our fight against opiate addiction by the end of the month! 

OUR PROMISE TO YOU


Paige’s PROMISE believes in being obligated to our supporters.  We owe you something for believing in and donating to us.  That's why we are committed to reaching the following goals within the next year. 


Will hold it's first annual benefit  and use the benefit proceeds to promote addiction awareness in the community and fund treatment for addicts.


Raise the $35,000 needed to begin our partnership with the Easter Seals Gives Back program. 



Imagine.  You will be a part of fighting this epidemic, saving lives and paying it forward!



With my sincerest gratitude,
