How much is HOPE worth? You tell me!

Want an easy and fun way to make a difference this week AND help me celebrate 2 years of blogging?  You’re invited!

Stop by and place some bids at my charity auction! 100% of my profit goes to support children at mortal risk — orphans whose current living situations are such that they will almost certainly be dead in 3-4 years if we don’t do something to help.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  James 1:27

So why do millions of orphans still live in poverty and alone on the streets, often victims of sexual abuse?  Why are hundreds of thousands of pre-adolescent girls still prostituted every year?


Hope Unlimited for Children knows firsthand that each of us as individuals, families, and churches, can work together to make a difference … one child at a time.  But will we?  Surely we don’t think if we ignore the problem it will just go away.   Do we?

Thank you to everyone who participated.  AUCTION HAS ENDED.
Of course, you can always click HERE to make an outright contribution.
