Double It, Baby!

Our total for Feed the Forgotten as of this morning is $15,113.83!!!!!!

Yep, that's 107,956 meals!
YOU have provided over ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND meals!
Can you believe it?
It will provide for 5,398 people food for 20 meals!
This will literally be saving lives!! PRECIOUS lives!

Don't leave yet. . .it just keeps getting better. . .

We have received $2,500 in matching money. That means your next donation is automatically doubled! If we can get $2,500 in donations, we will get to double it with the matching money and bring our total to over $20,000!

Wait, this has MAJOR implications. . .remember our "details, details, details" post? In it, I told you about 3 villages we were hoping to feed with donations. Well, they are provided for with the money we have raised so far! As of this weekend, we are hoping to feed 3 more villages!!!!!! I'll get more details on the villages soon, but I will tell you this. . Joseph, our country director, was THRILLED with the opportunity to provide for 3 more villages and said that these sites are in desperate need and if we raise the rest, we can FEED THEM!

Yep, it's not over yet! We still need that remaining $2,500 (which will turn into $5,000 with those matching funds!) to help these 3 hungry villages. Will you help? I know you may be thinking, "I've already posted about this. I've already given some. Doesn't everyone already know?" The truth is that each person who writes a post about this, or puts this info in their facebook reaches a WHOLE NEW sphere of influence. If you don't have a blog, consider sharing in your small group this week and taking a collection or just continuing the "Swap It" challenge to see if your family can save money this week to make a difference! Only a couple of days left. Keep spreading the word that WE GET TO BE A PART OF GOD'S WORK IN UGANDA! This isn't a desperate plea for cash, though the need certainly is great. This is an opportunity to get involved in the work of the Almighty God and be changed in the process!
