Although you probably live too far to be a part of this fundraising event in Colorado, USA, you can still help us to raise funds. Would you like to help?
Each year, Elizabeth Paige, in Colorado, USA, hosts a fundraiser to help with the annual expenses to take care of and educate these precious kids. This year, from July 26-28 the fundraiser will be a yard sale fundraiser, with donated goods from people all across her community.
Not only does it help these precious kids to have their needs met, but it also helps the local community to be able to purchase items very inexpensively—for any donation they want to give. That’s right, it is all by trust and faith. We let God move on people’s hearts to give whatever is in their hearts to do. Those who cannot afford much can have what they wish for only $1. Others are blessed to have the opportunity to be generous.
In a society that is centered on self interests and money, it really makes people stop and think about what this means and what kind of people would give so freely. We are able to give freely, because of all that Jesus freely gave us.
We would like to ask for your prayers that God would move mightily, that would raise what we need to, that people’s hearts would be touched with His presence and compassion and love for all—even them!
Or would you like to donate, or make a matching donation? Maybe you would consider doing the same thing, or something like it, in your own community. If one can set a thousand to flight, and two ten thousand. Can you imagine if even one more, or two, or three did the same thing? Please contact us if you would like to host your own event or click below to donate.
(Just so you know what our expenses are, the cost to feed and clothe each child is about $317/ year—less than $1 per day. The cost to educate each school-aged child is $1516/ year, and each high school aged child is $1816/ year. The staff salaries cost $5,400 per year for 9 full-time employees. So, the average cost to feed, clothe, care for, and educate each child is approximately $2091/ child/ year.)
Obviously, we would like to help as many kids as we possibly can! If you would like to donate to help offset any of these expenses, or sponsor a child, it would be greatly appreciated, not only by us, but by the Lord of all!!
