"Charis" means "gift" and Aaron and Carrien Blue are certainly a gift in the world with all they do for these kids and their community. They take an entrepreneurial approach to building a life for these kids, which means that they need capital to get started. That is what this fundraising campaign is about - raising the capital to buy the land for the orphanage - land they will not only live on, but work to provide a source of food and income. This can bring economic freedom, not only to the children, but to their whole community.
Do you see why this resonates with me?
You can read all about their work here, but in short they are giving away a donated iPod Nano in hopes of raising enough capital to fund their powerful dream. I know times are tough, but even a small donation will make a huge difference.
Plus there's the iPod. :) I still treasure the fish trap and machete I won last year.
Contest ends September 10th.
And thank you for being a light in these kids lives!
