Chip In Challenge

The missionary at Maison (our orphanage in Haiti) has issued a challenge to try to feed the children for a month... she is really close!

Here you can help too!

Here is what she says:
As I wrote about in a blog post and email earlier this week, the orphanage is facing an interesting situation in the next month. I gave a general request for help, a blanket statement that I make from time to time.

I decided to make it specific. And I did my math. I’m going to challenge you to feed the orphanage for a month. Yes, a month. But I’m not asking you to do it alone.

Between my facebook friends and those of you who receive this email, and those who read my blog (I realize there is some overlap) I figured that if each of you gave $10, you could feed the orphanage for an entire month.

Did you catch that? $10 as in the cost of a movie ticket, 2 awesome beverages from Starbucks, a sale DVD at Target, all of those things are around $10. For that amount, together you can feed all 74 children and the entire staff (yes, we are responsible for feeding the staff daily) for a whole month.

When is the last time you fed that many people for just $10? I’ve watched other ChipIn meters go to the goal. And then go past them. And then rejoiced that so many people came together to make a difference in the lives of kids.

So now it’s your turn.

I’m going to make it short and sweet, because I know you’re going to respond quickly.

So between now and November 15, I challenge you to feed my children!

Let’s do this!
