This Thursday - Join together to reach the world

Every 5 seconds a child dies of starvation.
That's a startling number, yet most of us are comfortable living our lives indifferent to the fact that people are dying from hunger.

But it's time to get uncomfortable. You CAN do something!
I was been introduced to the One Day, One Lunch Project by Lexi over at Choosing to Wait.

The Average American spends between $2.00 and $8.00 a day on lunch. If everyone who reads this blog post would simple choose- on February 3rd to give up their "lunch money" and then donate what they would have spent on lunch that day to Lifesong For Orphans for the Adami Tulu preschool in Ziway, Ethiopia. Can you image what Jesus could do? A mere $3.00 feeds a child for ONE MONTH.

So, on Thursday, February 3rd, you can make a difference in the life of a child. This is such a simple yet powerful way to change the world.

Here's how you can help:

1} Donate your lunch money
Donations can be given online at: http://www.lifesongfororphans.org/donation.html - please indicate it’s to go to the Adami Tulu Preschool.

Or mail checks to:

Lifesong for Orphans
PO Box 40
Gridley, IL 61744
*Indicate for the Adami Tulu Preschool

2} Spread the word on facebook
Join the One Day, One Lunch Project on facebook, and then invite your friends to join too.

3} Post about it on your blog and share it with your family and friends

Okay guys. I know I'm posting this a little late, and by the time you read this Thursday might be over. Even if you do this after February 3rd, I still challenge you to join in. It doen't matter on what day you help to change the world. You can donate $3 any ole day and feed a child for one month.

  2. Another good option is Compassion International. They're located in Colorado Springs and we have 2 friends that work there. Another outstanding relief organization!
