Our church takes part in a ministry called "One Day to Feed the World" each year and we donate one day's income to help feed those in need, here in the states and around the world. The organization is able to take the money they receive and multiply it times four through the help of corporate sponsors:
"Your gift, equal to one day’s wage can help change the world for suffering people. With the help of corporate sponsors, Convoy of Hope can multiply a $100 gift into $400, or more, of life sustaining goods. Everyone can participate in One Day to Feed the World.
Imagine, you take the equivalent of one day’s pay, give that to help hurting people and Convoy of Hope can multiply that gift by at least 4 times! You have the power to make a difference in the lives of people that are hurting, or people that are victims of a disaster. You can have an impact, by participating in One Day to Feed the World!"
Well, today is my "One Day".
100% of today's profits from my shop's sales will be donated directly to the One Day organization. I am very excited about working with an organization that uses it's money so effectively. Also, this is the first time in many, many years that I have actually had my very own income to give to something like this.
Aubry also wanted to participate and she made three dolly-slings to sell in my crafty shop. 100% of the money she makes will be given to the organization as well. Her willingness and desire to take part in this makes my heart smile.
