Yesterday was Orphan Sunday. Churches around the world took time to communicate the current orphan crisis and how the people of God should respond. So maybe at this point you want to help, you want to do something tangible that will make a difference. Let me share a few quick ways to make an immediate impact.
Rescue & Restore
We are currently raising $40,000, to help build an orphanage in Zimbabwe, which will rescue homeless kids who live in fields, streets, parks and dumps. All we ask you to do:
Find items that you don’t need, want or are willing to sacrifice, sell those items on Craigslist, eBay, etc, and donate the proceeds. 100% will go to completing this project.
Or…throw a garage sale party for orphans. Ask your church, family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to be involved. Hold a garage sale, and donate the proceeds. Again, 100% of all funds will go directly to finishing this project.
Go here, learn about our kids in ZImbabwe, and sponsor-a-child, the cost is $35 per month. 90% of those funds actually go directly to the orphanage for food, supplies, clothing and medicine! Your $35 a will help restore a child who has lost their parents due to aids, extreme poverty and war.
Two quick, easy and simple ways to help orphans. If you have any questions, please email us: info (@) helpendlocalpoverty (.) com.
