Thank you to everyone who participated in the Numana Meal Packing fundraiser. Our original goal was to raise $6000 that would have enabled us to pack 20,000 meals for children in Haiti. But we quickly surpassed that goal and set a new goal. The new goal was to raise $24,000. This would allow us to pack 80,000 meals.
Praise God and give him a praise clap, because, on the day of our fundraising deadline (May 22), we met our goal! In total we raised $24,065 for more than 80,000 meals.
We could not have done it without the readers of this blog. So many of you from so many different parts of the country donated and contributed. I am so grateful for the out-pouring of support.
On June 3, we will be packing the meals. We have more than 300 people who will be participating in the event at McDivitt Elementary School in Old Bridge, NJ. At this time all the volunteer spots are filled, but if you made a donation we can still make room for you to participate.
When the meals are packed, they will be sent to Mission of Hope, Haiti. Mission of Hope already provides more than 90,000 meals a day for children in Haiti. Unfortunately, they still have more than 70,000 children on a waiting list. These additional 80,000 meals we will pack will enable them to remove some of those children from the waiting list.
Thank you for making a difference. You helped to bring hope. If you would like to follow more of our efforts in Haiti, make sure to visit haitianchildrensministry.org and sign up for our mailing list. We have an education initiative that will be launching this summer and we will be leading a mission trip to Haiti March 3-10, 2018. Then we are planning our next meal packing event for June 2, 2018. We hope you can join us in this important effort.
