What Does Family Christian's Haiti Challenge Mean?

By now, I hope you know what Family Christian is up to next week.  If not, let me give you a brief overview:

  • November 29, 30 and December 1, they are donating 100% of their proceeds toward building the new orphange at Ft. Jacques.   You can go to The Haiti Challenge to read more about it.
  • This includes online sales as well as sales in stores.   So if you don't want to go out and brave the crowds, fire up your computer and shop that way.
  • If you don't want to buy anything, if you donate to their effort on their site, they will match it $1 for $1.

What is their goal?   They want to raise $500,000 for building the new orphanage at Ft. Jacques.   That $500,000 goal will complete (we hope) the main house/nursery/NICU/offices.   The goal is for them to have that completely covered.

Would that be an awesome thing?   As Karen Kingsbury described it - a "God sized goal."

If you'd like us to have the funding lined up to build the nursery/main house/NICU, can you do three things?

  1. Share this blog post with your friends and urge them to shop at Family Christian next Friday, Saturday or Sunday.   They can even shop online if they go to http://www.familychristian.com/
  2. Pray that it will be successful and that people will be moved to help us accomplish this goal.
  3. Next Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday, shop at Family Christian stores to help us out.

It's an exciting time and an awesome way for us to have a truly game changing event in the future of GLA.  Thank you in advance for your help.
