Share Your Luck Season: Helping Our Neighbors in Need & Tripling Your Donation

We are excited to announce our newest initiative, “Share Your Luck Season,” now through St. Patrick’s Day.

For Share Your Luck Season, we will highlight specific and tangible opportunities for San Diegans to Share Their Luck to prevent and alleviate the suffering of homelessness throughout San Diego County. Additionally, all donations will be tripled up to $125,000 thanks to a matching challenge from LDF’s co-founders as well as David & Vala Lueth and Ron & Guadalupe Cohn.  

Everyone who participates in “Share Your Luck Season” through the gift of their time, talent, or treasure will be entered to win a variety of prizes including a $500 gift card to Timmy’s Place for printing or catering, customized LDF swag from Nike and Columbia, and a $250 gift card to Home Start’s Bright Futures Candles.

“Share Your Luck Season” opportunities

Join the Lucky Duck Coffee Club

Become a member of the Lucky Duck Coffee Club, a brand-new program where individuals and companies can purchase premium grade coffee where at least 30% of the purchase price will directly support LDF’s many programs. Individuals and companies are encouraged to purchase coffee that will prevent and reduce homelessness. 

Be A Friend – Impact A Life

Be A Friend-Impact A Life is a step by step program designed to train and activate volunteers through service organizations to positively impact the lives of individuals experiencing homelessness through the power of friendship.

Through the Be A Friend program, you will be paired with a friend who is at risk of or experiencing homelessness so that they can feel heard, valued and understood, and through the power of friendship, live a life they desire.

Patronize Timmy’s Place for catering and printing needs

“Our youth are extremely grateful for the employment opportunity provided to them at Timmy’s Place. Public support of the pizzeria, and especially the catering and print businesses, are instrumental in employing them while also ‘teaching them to fish.’”

– Eric Lovett, Founder & CEO, Urban Street Angels

Volunteer at We See You San Diego’s dinner party

“We are so excited to partner with and benefit from LDF’s ‘Share Your Luck Season.’ Our weekly dinner is more than just a dinner. Rather, we invite people to leave the streets right then and there, and we cover the cost of their drug and alcohol detox and treatment all the way to getting them fully back on their own two feet. Like LDF, we’re laser focused on providing an immediate pathway off the streets, and we hope many people can volunteer with us to accomplish this work.”

– Laura Chez, Founder & Executive Director, We See You San Diego

Start a peer-to-peer fundraiser

Help the Lucky Duck Foundation raise money to fund and activate high-impact programs that alleviate the suffering of homelessness.

Buy candles made by mothers overcoming homelessness at Home Start

“Our transition-age young mothers exiting from homelessness are very excited to participate in our Social Enterprise programs. We are so grateful for the generous LDF support of our Bright Futures Candles and Thrift Boutique programs. This valued partnership helps create a pathway to bright futures for these strong, capable, and resilient young mothers.”

– Laura Tancredi-Baese, CEO, Home Start, Inc.
