As I tuck my kids into bed at night, I'm not worried about if they'll be warm enough, or safe from harm. When they wake in the morning I don't worry about what they will eat for breakfast. When we need a drink of water we just go to the sink and turn on the faucet, or go to the fridge for a cold glass of milk. I have MANY luxuries that people around the world do not. I am very wealthy compared to the many people in the world who have little to nothing.
I've been wrestling with the thought of how I could help the people in Haiti. Simple me. One person. Living miles away from them. In my comfortable home. With a roof over my head. Water in my pipes. And all my family safe and accounted for. I know that I am BLESSED beyond imagination.
I had a thought. One that many other bloggers have had. I wanted to get other people involved. I wanted to let other people find a way to help out those in Haiti who are trying to rebuild their lives. So, here's what I am doing.
For one week, from right now until Friday, January 29th at noon (CST) I will be asking for your help. For every comment that is left on this post I will donate $0.15 and for every new public follower I will donate $0.25. (up to $100). So what does it cost you? Nothing. Just leave a comment. Tell me your name, where you're from, something, anything. Just a comment. Or follow this blog and your donation will be even greater.
It gets better. If you'd like to help out in an even bigger way I have two more opportunities for you. I will donate 50% of any purchase from my etsy store before Friday, January 29th at noon. AND if you book a photography session with me before Friday (doesn't have to take place before Friday and does not include weddings) I will also donate 50% of the session fee.
So, you get something fun for your home or a photography session and I will donate 50% to LCMS World Relief and Human Care. Please also check Matthew Harrison's (Executive Director of LCMS World Relief and Human Care) blog, he is in Haiti and updates when he is able.
I'm not alone in this. I contacted some of my friends and they were willing to jump in and help out also.Elisa from e-fran designs is also donating $0.15 for each comment on her post and $0.25 for each new public follower on her blog as well and donating 25% of all sales from her etsy store this week.
Kate Kaiser Designs is donating $0.15 for each comment on her post and $0.25 for each new public follower on her blog as well as donating 50% of all sales from her etsy store this week.
Would you like to join us? It's not too late. If you would like a link to your post from here so that you can get comments, followers and donate please let me know! Also, I'd love to add more etsy store owners to the mix as well. All money donated will be collected by me, and sent through my church to LCMS World Relief and Human Care to go straight to the work in Haiti! Please tell everyone you know to visit these sites and help out in whatever way they can! We'd also love it if you linked back to this post on your blog!
Thanks and I pray that you are richly blessed in all you do!!! May you know the LOVE of our Savior a little more today!
