Giving Tuesday – Sister India

I know that we are in the busiest time of year. I also know that we’re in the most expensive time of year. Presents, parties, family outings, dinner – it all adds up! And there is nothing wrong with that. There is nothing wrong with enjoying our blessings.

But here’s the thing. We were given a lot. Most people living in America are beyond blessed. Think about how much food we ate on Thanksgiving. The family surrounding us. The presents that are starting to collect under the tree in our comfy, warm houses. We are blessed.

There’s a Bible verse that says “Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required.” {Luke 12:48}

Now whether or not you believe in the Bible, you have to agree with the statement. We have a lot. There are a lot of people out there who don’t have anything. People who really know what it means when you say “I’m starving!” I think it’s our duty to give and help those who can’t help themselves.

That’s why this month you’re gonna see me supporting a few different causes to raise awareness and hopefully money for those who are less fortunate than me. Sister India is one of them. I have written about them in the past and supported them before because I love what they stand for. They work with woman in India to educate them and show them that they don’t have to marry off their daughters at a young age or sell them into prostitution. There are other options. Through their education they learn they can work, earn money, even have their own company. They can support their family in a good way and break the chain.

The reason I like this company is because it doesn’t just throw money at the problem. Instead it works with the women to show them a new way. It doesn’t just change the one women either, it helps her create a new life for her family as well.

Check out the video. Look at their website. Ask questions if you have them, but please consider giving. Any amount counts because it all adds up! Just think if all my readers, which are about 6,000 a day, gave up one cup of coffee at $5 and donated we’d already have $30,000!! We all can probably spare $5.
