Buckets For Boys

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Wow, I am truly blessed! Really, today I proved to myself that nomal everyday people can make a BIG difference in the world if you just ask and that people WANT to do good things for others! You know everyone is really concerned, angry, worried, consumed by the economy, but I have heard of more people doing good deeds to help out thier fellow brothers and sisters than I have in a long time. People are doing good things for strangers because they empathize or sympathize with them. The country is coming together regardless of status, race, gender, or religion just to help one another survive. That my friends is what it's all about!
I want to thank my family and friends and their friends that pulled together for these boys and doubled the needed donations less than 24 hours after I posted this on facebook and made a few calls! You all have no idea how much this will mean to these guys! I wish we could all be there on Easter morning to see their sweet faces. We will be praying over these buckets and the children they will be going to before they are delivered. Their needs will never be fully met at the boys home so you are more than welcome to continue to give. I can put your donations to very good use for these guys.
My heart broke today as my contact from there told me that with the economy the way it was they expect to see a full house soon. They got 7 boys last week and will get 2 more tomorow. I never even thought that people would leave their children there because of economic times..... They have had boys sitting on the steps when they got to work in the mornings. Just dropped off there with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the weight of the world on thier shoulders.
I will post more info about when we will meet to pray over the buckets and the boys if you would like to help out in that way! Thank you for being HIS hands and feet or Jesus in real people clothes as my Mom would say! love and blessings to you all!
