Today I am going to stray from my usual format because I have an announcement to make.
Yesterday, I stumbled upon a blog called Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids. (Click on highlighted title to visit her blog!) She has a section called “Comments for a Cause”. Val donates a set amount for each comment she receives on her blog to a new charity each month.
After reading her story, I went out to water and weed the garden. When I am alone in the garden, I often spend my time there in prayer. I prayed about how I could implement this system into my own blog, not just for God’s glory, but so that others would benefit.
After all, Jesus said, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” ~Matthew 25:35-36 (ESV)
If you know my family personally, or have read about how we view stewardship, then you know that we feel accountable to God for how we spend the resources He has blessed us with. When it comes to charitable giving, we are careful to do our homework to insure, as much as possible, that we are giving to reputable and quality charities.
One charity our family has supported is Haiti Healthcare Partners. (Click on highlighted title to visit their website.) We personally know the people behind this project, as well as the integrity and heart that drives their mission. Would you prayerfully consider supporting their cause?
You can now be a part of helping me blog with a cause. I will personally donate 5 cents for each new email subscriber, reader comment, tweet, Facebook share, and Pin. Together we can help one another grow in our faith, care for our families, and give a little back to the “least of these”.
After all, Jesus said, “…Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” ~Matthew 25:40 (ESV)
I will be sure to post regular updates letting you know how much you have helped me raise. Thank you for your continued support. To God be the glory! Always.
