Black Friday has come and gone. Cyber Monday is tomorrow. Stores and online sellers are packing your e-mail and television with all kinds of things for you or your family and friends. But when then packages are unwrapped, the trash thrown out, and the decorations packed away…will the gift you gave or received really make an impact?
For the next three weeks, I will feature a different social justice organization that I personally have a passion about. Give some thought about giving a gift that will last…the inner satisfaction and peace that comes when you reach out and help those who cannot help themselves.
Since Convoy of Hope, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 1994, they have served more than 37 million people throughout the world through international children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing.
Every day, they feed more than 49,000 children in El Salvador, Haiti, Kenya, Nicaragua and the Philippines. In doing so, they also provide good nutrition, clean and safe drinking water, instruction on agricultural techniques, healthy living environments and education.
Year after year, Convoy of Hope is lauded for their effectiveness and efficiency in mobilizing tens of thousands of volunteers for community outreaches and during times of disaster response.
No matter what we are doing, their objective is to always deliver much-needed food, supplies and hope to the impoverished and suffering.
Convoy of Hope was instrumental in providing aid to victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Indonesia Tsunami, and the Haiti Earthquakes.
