Hi and Blessings to you and yours,
Here is an update on the third year of the “Skip it to Give it” campaign. We use the hashtag #skipittogiveit” and our hashtag says it all!
What is it all about, well it will take a small story to tell you.
You see, Haiti is one place I visit that is quite difficult for me on a personal level. I cannot seem to get away from the thought that it is in the western hemisphere, I feel it should not be like this, the country. I am in Haiti in my mind as I write this, where due to repeating disasters, both man-made and natural, have created situations where some people have lost everything they own several times over! I tell people I meet that nowhere I know of have the people become so used to restarting their lives and having restarts as part of their normal life. I believe we need to help with a hand up not a handout. We need to help Haitians there in their community and home. We can be the hand up, it is so easy.
The “Skip it to Give it” campaign can literally change the lives of people in Haiti, just by applying a few simple steps to your and your family's everyday living can bring about a huge change. Imagine thinking about others before buying that Starbucks coffee, or that half dozen Dunkin Donuts, a movie night or a dinner out... and taking those few dollars and giving them to help feed the hungry in Haiti?
A movement can begin with one person sharing about this campaign while catalyzing others to see the need before they spend the green. Being a living example of “Skip it to Give it” to others honors God and makes your light shine a little brighter in a dark world here and there.
On our "skip it to give it page" is everything you need to know about the “Skip it to Give it” campaign, our friend Pastor Jonathan also explains all in a short video and there is the sign-up!
