GIVE THE GIFT OF HOPE THIS CHRISTMAS
If you're like me you want to help, but you never know if the money will reach the children. You don't know who is behind the effort, and if it's a scam of not. We know how little of our donations go to even the largest organizations.
But this is one, I know to be true.
All donations go through the hands of my childhood friend's non-profit. I know the woman behind this organization and she is amazing. She gets in and does the work herself. A little about her past. In junior high she and I would make prank phone calls at Christmastime. We called random phone numbers, and she would play the piano and we would sing holiday songs. Geri, has always made people smile, and giving the gift of hope to children in Sierra Leone is just one of those ways.
Our holiday purchases bring short-term smiles, but they rarely make a long-term difference. This year, make your gift count. You can provide an education for a child, food, and perhaps save a life. Your donation will not only give a short term smile, but will make a lasting and long term difference in our world. My gift to you, is going to the children who need help this year.
"It is that time of year...the time when we scurry around getting our to-do list done and preparing for the wonderful holidays ahead. But it is also the time when non-profits like us hope and pray that the needed funding comes in to help those in need.
In the last 6 weeks, four of our young students passed away. I can't even imagine that type of grief for those parents. We need to do more to bring much needed education and medical care to the Bridge villages.
This year, we ask you to consider choosing a gift that makes an impact on a life for years to come. Make a donation that provides hope for one of our beautiful friends in Makeni, Sierra Leone. Donate in the name of a friend or loved one. How beautiful it is to know we can make a BIG DIFFERENCE with a simple gift."
"You can donate a specific item like medical supplies, a bag of rice, a solar light...or just give a general gift that will go to the highest need. We’re not asking you to do anything dramatic and if you’ve given all you can this year already, we just want to say THANK YOU! "
Your gift truly saves lives.
Enjoy the Journey!
