Twenty Five Dollars

What does it buy? If you had $25 in your pocket today what would you do with it?

Spend it on gas?

Take a friend to lunch?

Go to the movie with your spouse/significant other?

Buy a new DVD or favorite music CD?

Maybe even a new blouse or skirt? (hey, I shop at Wally World so this is within reason)



Be happy to feed a child?


And send them to school.

And pay for their school uniforms and supplies.

Yes, $25.00 does all that.


For a child like Smeralda...

Or a child like Michael...

Or like Alexandra...

Or like Claudia...

A chance for them to go to school here.

Looks rough around the edges yes, but this is what it looked like last summer when we were there during construction stages and helping to paint and repair desks and such. It's a beautiful new school now, where the kids can receive an education, have nutritional meals provided to them everyday and they are able to get uniforms and new shoes and school supplies.

What an opportunity for a child. $25 a month can provide so much that we take for granted.

Getting to meet your sponsored child..... now that's priceless. ♥

To find out more about sponsoring a child through Life Connection Mission in Haiti, check out their website HERE. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. This mission is very near and dear to my heart and I would love nothing more than to see all of the children in Montrious, Haiti sponsored. Let go of your wealth!

You can also visit their facebook page HERE and see what's going on with the mission and hear from people who are there or have recently been there working and providing relief to the people in Haiti.
