While we weren’t actually in an elevator, I had someone ask me, “So, can you give me your elevator pitch?” What’s that? It’s a 30 second synopsis of who you are and what you do.
“I work from here to connect people in the 1st World with opportunities for them to make a difference for the kids in Haiti, particularly the kids at God’s Littlest Angels.”
He understood very clearly and we had a very interesting conversation after that. Why do I tell you that?
Because there are three specific upcoming opportunities for you to make a difference for God’s Littlest Angels and the kids there.
November 29-December 1 - Family Christian Stores, through their James Fund, is donating 100% of their proceeds for all sales to help us build Ft. Jacques. How awesome is that? On Black Friday, they are giving up all of their profit to help orphans in Haiti. Check it out here http://www.familychristian.com/haiti#.Un0K7Pmsidn - and I’ll be talking about it more as the time draws closer.
December 3 – The Friday after Thanksgiving is known in the United States as “Black Friday.” The following Monday is known as “Cyber Monday” (because everyone who didn’t brave the stores is shopping online while they are supposed to be working. There is a movement out called, “Giving Tuesday.” What does it do? It urges people to support the charity of their choice and to do so as a reminder of how much we have been given and how God has called us to share what we’ve been given. You can go to http://community.givingtuesday.org/News to read more about it. What are we hoping to do on that Tuesday? Raise $3,000 specifically so that 15 of the kids who came to us last year from Kenscoff can sleep in their own bed rather than on a mat on the floor. More to come as we get closer.
GLA Holiday Day – I’m still working on the details but this is going to be something that 100% of our supporters can participate in. It’s an international yet community based opportunity to encourage everyone to do something to help the kids at GLA. I’m not going to say much more than that for now because the details are still being worked on.
Thank you so much for your help, your caring and your devotion to our kids,
