Be the Blessing: 30 bucks to Be the Blessing

January 25, 2014

By Tina Chandler

It’s winter – no doubt of that.  This time of year, there are coat and blanket drives, shelter fundraisers, and a bright spotlight shines on the needs of the homeless and those struggling financially. 

Are you warm?  Do you have a closet full of last year’s coats and extra blankets?  What about an extra sleeping bag or some boots? Your gift of “what used to be useful to me” stuff or a donation could be the difference in someone’s life. Why wait until Spring?  Do some Winter cleaning!  Pack ‘em up and head to the shelter, or maybe your church has a clothes closet, or a charity thrift store that helps families.

Another thing to consider, how much do you spend on that giant coffee or even the soda and snacks every day?  For me, that could easily add up to $60 a month, maybe more.  I’ll bet it’s the same for most of you.  What if you pledge (and follow through) with just ½ of that each month?  There are countless ways to schedule an on-going or recurring gift. 

Find the organization that you are most closely aligned with in who and what they do.  This might be a women’s shelter, a family shelter, an emergency child advocacy program (PJs, comfort toys, etc.), your church benevolence program. 

Seek, pray, do your research and get involved…

30 bucks to Be the Blessing

Isaiah 1:17 (KJV)
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

    I'm just trying to figure out how much mayo-fil-a biscuits one must give up to reach $30. The correct answer would be all.
