I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce you to a ministry that my brother and 2 others started in Effingham, IL called Feed the Crave. They just returned from a trip to Costa Rica where they were able to deliver 3,015 meals and a rice huller to immediately benefit an orphanage in Jobo! (You can see pictures on their Facebook page.) I am super excited to be doing a photo fundraiser with them on April 2nd in Effingham, IL to raise additional funds for them to continue this ministry! I will be doing short little 15-20 min photo mini-sessions, and you will receive 10 edited images on CD. If you are in the mid-Illinois area and are in need of some updated pictures, this is a great opportunity to have photos done, and help a great cause! Just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested and I’ll forward you the info!
And, if you aren’t in that area, but would still like to know more about Feed the Crave and help out, be sure to visit their webpage (http://www.feedthecrave.org) where you can donate a specific amount, purchase meals to donate, buy t-shirts that are used to fund the ministry, etc. You can also find out information about how to host a meal packing event at your church! Here’s an excerpt I took from their webpage, but I do encourage you to visit the page also:
Nearly 2 people die of starvation or related diseases every second. That means that in the last hour 6,444 people have died of hunger; today 154,656 people will die of hunger; and in the year 2010 56,449,440 people will die of hunger. The saddest part of this story is:
STARVATION IS 100% PREVENTABLE.
Feed the Crave Ministries is dedicated to feeding the hungry of the world so that they can come to know their savior. For just $0.30 you can provide a nutritional meal for a hungry person in the world. That meal will provide them with all of the vitamins & minerals that they need to survive another day.”
Wow -$1 can feed a person for a day… I hope the photo fundraiser will be a fun way to feed many more than that. Please help me spread the word to book all these mini-sessions so we can help make a difference in someone’s life!
