One Day-One Lunch YOU Can Make a Difference!

A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor Proverbs 22:9


Stop for a minute and consider this question. What are you having for lunch today?

For thousands of children around the world the answer to that question is nothing!

Every 5 seconds somewhere in the word a child dies of starvation.  
Sadly, while we go through our days and plan our meals we rarely think about those who have no food to fill their aching, empty stomachs.

Perhaps it is because this epidemic of hunger is so large; we don’t even know where to begin in easing the pain that it causes. But what if you knew where to begin? What if all it took was giving the money that you would spend on lunch for one day to make a significant difference in the lives of hungry children. It can!

The Average American spends between $2.00 and $8.00 a day on lunch. If everyone who reads this blog post would simply choose- on February 3rd- to give up their ‘lunch money’ and then donate what they would have spent on lunch that day to Lifesong For Orphans for the Adami Tulu preschool in Ziway, Ethiopia the pains of hunger would be eased  for thousands of children and lives would be saved!  

 Jesus took in His hands the lunch of an obedient, willing child and with it He fed more than 5000 people. Imagine what Jesus could do with your lunch!  A mere $3.00 feeds a child for ONE MONTH. Imagine the impact that can be made simply by our willingness to place our lunch in His hands to make a small sacrifice for someone else?
So mark your calendar for Feb. 3rd and spread the word about the 'One Day- One Lunch Project.' Together we can make a difference in the lives of children one lunch at a time! 

Donations can be given online at: http://www.lifesongfororphans.org/donation.html please indicate it's to go to the Adami Tulu Preschool.
Or mail checks to:

(The One Day – One Lunch Project was started by Addisyn and her family. You can learn more about them and the amazing journey God has put them on here!)  

 Because They are His Children,
