The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing.The traditional red kettle is and integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.
Donations provide Christmas dinners, clothing, and toys for families in need. Financial assistance also helps with basic necessities, along with seasonal aid. Families of prisoners often are included.
Volunteers distribute gifts to shut-ins in hospitals and nursing homes, and shelters are open for sit-down dinners. The Salvation Army endeavors to bring spiritual light and love to those it serves at Christmas so that the real meaning of the season is not forgotten.

Food For The Poor raises funds and provides direct relief assistance to the poor, usually by purchasing specifically requested materials and distributing them through the churches and charity organizations already operating in areas of need. In this way, the organization serves the poor with dignity and ensures the most appropriate use of donors' funds.
Our ministry reflects God's unconditional love, which surrenders all, inspires trust and faith, and embraces all people regardless of race, status or creed. We believe that Christ is alive, and that we can best serve Him by being of assistance to those in greatest need (Matthew 25:31-46). Finally, we stress the need for regular prayer to guide and maintain the purity of our mission.
FFP seeks to link the church of the First World with the church of the Third World in a manner that aids both the materially and spiritually poor. We empower the poor in spirit through our direct ministry of teaching, encouragement and prayer. Ultimately, we aspire to bring benefactors, recipients and ourselves to a closer union with our Lord.

Personal request: MUSTARD SEED PROJECT

This is sponsored by one of my best friends' church. She and I and several others are teaming up to sponsor a little girl in Uganda by the name of Beyeza (born in 1999). Her mother died, and her father was unable to care for her, and so she has been with the mission.

They ask for $25 a month, but seeing as all of us donating so far are poor college students, we just chip together whatever we can.

There's no website, but you can make checks out to "Mustard Seed" and mail them to:
The Blessed Mustard Seed Babies Home
1808 36th St., SE
Rio Rancho, NM 87124
(505) 892-2818

(make note that you are giving to little Beyeza, unless you desire to make a general contribution)

If you choose to give to Mustard Seed, please let me know how much you give so that I know how we are doing. Thank you. :)

(you can use "Contact Me" in the left side panel to send me an email)

If you want more information and/or if you would like a photo of her, just ask and I'll do my best to oblige you.
