If all is suffering and compassion is a mirror,
Cause no suffering in others
That in you they may see
the best of themselves. - Michael Morrissey
When Michael Morrissey wrote these words, he had no idea the impact they would have on others. He loved life and he loved teaching. Even after his death, Michaelís life still has a profound effect on others through Michaelís Way, Inc.
Michael's Way is more than simply honoring a good man. It has grown from a seed of an idea into a strong young sapling whose roots are touching lives, and bringing together churches, organizations and individuals to help low income adults reach their educational goals.
Michael's Way, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping low income adults break the cycle of poverty through educational opportunities that lead to better jobs and higher incomes.
The difference between the minimum wage in South Carolina and an hourly rate that helps a family of four break the cycle of poverty is $3.95. For a 40-hour workweek, that equates to an increase of $158 per week.
Your donation to Michael’s Way will help adults in Greenville County lift themselves from poverty to a more prosperous life for themselves and their families. Just a $100 donation from 17 donors will send three students through a Quick Jobs program. It takes $500+ to $1,000+ to send a student through a thorough program.
Through certification programs and other educational opportunities, Michael’s Way helps people see the best of themselves by lifting spirits, self-esteem and salaries.
