Jer and a few of his friends from his mission have recently started working with an organization called Half the Sky to raise money for orphans in China. So far they have raised about $600.00 which is enough money to support one child for a year. Their goal is to raise $50,000.00 by May 1st, this will support several kids for many years and will help renovate some of the orphanages and pay for some kids' college tuition.
As we have gotten more and more involved in this effort to help these children I have become more aware of the difference we can each make by helping to donate ten or fifteen dollars. While reflecting on this Christmas season I am saddened to think of what Holidays might be like for these sweet children.
I'm grateful for Jer and his friends who are putting forth their precious time and energy to this worthy cause. If you are interested in helping them reach their goal, please go to this site:
