okay folks

i want you to know that i believe with all of my soul that providing the funds to give a job and training to someone in rural India in order for them to become a well mechanic who will give clean water access to 5,000 people is, quite literally, bringing Heaven to earth.  

"Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven" 
-Jesus :)

this campaign is so complex and unique, because it touches the NOW of the urgency of clean water so children can stop dying of unnecessary disease and it touches the FUTURE of a community who has a well mechanic who is trained to fix and maintain their well.  it impacts an INDIVIDUAL life by giving them a job to earn money so that they may live "beyond survival" and it impacts a COMMUNITY of people who, not only get clean water, but also the hope that comes from economic growth.  

the now
the future
the individual
the community

are you serious?  yep.  
this is not just some game to see how much money we can raise and how many mechanics we can train.  

this is changing the world.    

and i want you to change the world with me.  because it's fun.  and empowering.  but mostly because it's what Jesus calls us to.  i can't tell you how humbled i am to have the opportunity to be a part of such a unique campaign.  

and you have the opportunity too.  

we are adding to the raffle.  

1. another Laura Moffat  30 minute photo session (20 dollars)

2. another chicken enchilada and guac meal. (10 dollars)

3. a "free" spot for soccer camp. it will be held from 9:30-11:00 the last two wednesdays and fridays of july  (20 dollars)

4.  kojo designs says that all you have to do is BID on either the flashcards (10 dollars) or the POP baby shower (5 dollars) and she'll send you the PDF's.  now that's a steal :)  you automatically win just by bidding!  fun!

you can comment here or on the original post.  doesn't really matter to me, just make sure you let me know how much you donated and which items you'd like to bid on.

please email if you're a little confused, but would still like to help!  i can be a bit wordy and explain too much, which doesn't always help the situation :)   mandyhoule@gmail.com

and don't forget, bidding earns you a spot to our water party.  and kirst from kojo designs is going to help me plan it, so you don't want to miss out.  you have until 8 pm on world water day to bid, that's 16 days away.  

and let's change the world.
