For those that have started to participate and only have found a few dollars in their change collected so far... do NOT be discouraged. EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS! Whether it be $4 total, $10 total, or more that you've collected... I promise that all of it will make a difference.
Be encourage that any change you can collect during this time, even if it's only 50 cents can impact a child. See evidence how VERY LITTLE can help A LOT in this info found on the Amazima Ministries website:
"MASESE FEEDING PROGRAM
A child can be provided a healthy meal for as little as 15 cents! Amazima feeds 1,200 children in the Masese feeding program, which provides children from a slum community with meals at school as an alternative to begging for food on the streets. Fifteen dollars provides 100 meals for these children. A week's worth of meals is provided for $2.10 (children are served lunch and given food to take home for supper). Feed a child today!!"
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions over the next fifteen days as we bring the ABC Challenge 2010 to a close. I'm pumped about this! Remember, if you like, leave a comment on the original ABC Challenge 2010 blog post: here on January 31st to tell us how much you were able to collect during your 30 day pocket change challenge. Feel free to leave an anonymous comment if you prefer!
Be encouraged that every little bit helps, you can start to make a difference in a life TODAY!
