Shameless plug

October 17, 2006

Okay, so sadly I have had to cancel my membership to this amazing group that provides relief for Africans through web-based donations. Some options include the following:

  • 9 meals for 3 orphans in a day
  • 1 day of housing for 21 orphans
  • 1 orphan’s schooling for a month
  • 1 year of clean water for 7 people
  • 1 month of life-saving drugs for a person with AIDS

one of these options costs the equivalent of 2 mocha lattes… (7 dollars). So, for every monthly donation of 7 dollars, you are able to make one of these options happen for people in Africa. Seriously… 7 dollars. For those two times you bought coffee drinks this week, you could have kept a person alive for one more month. It’s a worthy sacrifice, don’t you think?

The only reason I am canceling is because, being in Canada, I can’t put funds into my American account… 😦 So, I am encouraging others to get involved with Mocha Club! Check them out, please!

    soon i’ll double my monthly donation to the mocha club to make up for yours… how’s that? give me a little bit of time to get a normal job, but i will SO do it!

    lisa’s dad was in town this week-the three of us had coffee before church on sunday night. he’s a sweet man… i told him to take care of you! it’s fun to meet someone directly connected with you in vancouver.

    he was in town for a couple of speaking engagements and to do some research on the church we’re involved with, the village. it started as a church plant 3 years ago and has BOOMED into something crazy.

    hope you’re doing well and had fun with the girls! i love you!
