10 for 10

How many times have I gone to Target and bought something that I could have done without?

Too many.

$10 here.  $10 there.

What do I have to show for it?  A wallet?  Some makeup? A shirt I really don't need that's on clearance?

This past Sunday at church, my eyes were opened to some sweet children that could use my money so much more than I need a new shirt.

My church is partnering with New Life Home Trust in Nairobi, Kenya to help change the lives of 10 special needs orphans.  I won't go into all of the details because the video does an amazing job.

Go ahead...I'll give you about 5 minutes to watch it.

Wasn't it worth the 5 minutes?  Did you catch how much needs to be raised to get these 10 children a room of their very own?  $75,000.  $7,500/room - in case you are a little rusty on your math skills.  That's a big number, but not too big for our God.  

So, this is where you come in...

You probably don't go to my church, but I thought you might be interested in being a part of this effort. Money will be collected until the end of 2011.

I want to challenge you to give $10.

There are no iPads, jewelry, or gift cards to be won for a random giver.

Just the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing something for 10 kids over in Kenya.

If you have a blog, would you be so kind as to post this button on the side of your blog so others can hear about it too?  Thanks!
