Rarely do I read the news online. For that matter rarely do I watch the news on tv. It’s just a fact of my life. But today something caught my eye as I got online to blog. It was an article from Forbes and it read as follows:
” Americans will spend $ 447.1 billion during the 2010 holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation, an industry trade group. Much of that cash will be spent via the Web, all on one day: Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, when bargain-hungry shoppers boot up their computers and go surfing for deals.”
So I got to thinking… What if everyone who read this blog sent it, talked about it or posted it on Facebook and shared it with their friends and family? And what if through that process just even a small portion of that online shopping involved people looking at www.TrinitysAngels.org and buying from our online store or making a donation? Can you imagine what a difference it would make? To me……..that is EXCITING !!! The needs of the people that we serve are great, don’t get me wrong. The beauty of it is…that with a minimal contribution a HUGE difference is made.
Simply the need is: monetary donations…that go to fund food for orphans, food for needy families in the local communities, bible programs for children and youth, clothing for children, building materials to repair and build and basic houses providing a safer home for families. And new this upcoming year – medicine for children that treats parasites they have due to unsafe drinking water.
I’ll leave you with that and some pictures of the faces of people your donations have and will continue to support.
