As the youth and children Pastor at Northeast United Methodist Church I encouraged the youth to "tell a better story" with the money we rise during our annual Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. Each year in the past we have given given 10%. So this year they decided they would give 50% of their profits to The Water Project. What a great group of kids. They are thinking beyond themselves. Our ministry needs are not fully funded through our budget so students raise money selling pumpkins to support their ministry. Giving half of their profits should be approx $4500. This will go a long way to providing clean water, and will require sacrifice from them.
How great would it be if you would partner with the youth at our church a give just a few dollars to the project. It would be great if all of my friends would help them. Many yof you can't come to the patch here is Columbia but you can still help my kids drill wells.
Thank you so very much, and my all the our Lord gives you be a blessing so that you might give in return.
Your Servant Fred
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
