So Much Need...

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all the need...  no many that have so little, and it weighs heavy sometimes.

Are you following along with what has been happening in Egypt?  I have a friend that is living just outside of Cairo.  If you want a real persons view of what is happening you can read her blog here:  Expats in Egypt

So many people, literally staving now and she is helping by handing out food and sandwiches.  It only takes $10 to feed a family of four for a whole week.  I have never fed my family of four using only $10.

See what she is doing here and here.

community care


And then there is this:

15 year old Addisyn decided to make a difference in the lives of some children who made a difference in hers, so for 100 days she gave up her lunch eating only a small bowl of soup and a piece of bread so she could give her lunch money to these children.  Because $3.00 feeds one child from Adami Tulu preschool in Ethiopia for a month!  She inspired us to also make a difference - one lunch, one day and you know what happened?  Many people made a small sacrifice to give up one lunch - and together donated $3,620.13!  Isn't that amazing?

If you would like to help, you may do so here: 

Online donations:  (indicate for the Adami Tulu Preschool).

How about you?  Is there something that is currently tugging on your heart?
