Year 5: Giving is a Blog Tradition, Thanks to You

Filed under: General — by at 11:39 am on Wednesday, November 21, 2012

In a society where a cell phone is obsolete in six months (if you are lucky), anything that survives into the fifth year is definitely worthy of being declared a tradition!

Thanks to you – my family, friends and loyal readers- this blog now officially has a tradition of giving to individuals in desperate need. Since 2008, when that little voice inside of my head distinctly said, “Feed 100 people!” we have fed 330 people a warm Christmas dinner through the Union Gospel Mission (UGM). Your generosity is overwhelming and heart-warming. Thank you.

Why the UGM? On Darrell’s and mine wedding day, Mom and my brother Kevin packaged up the leftover food and delivered it to the Union Gospel Mission. Since then, the UGM has held a special place in my heart.

Can we do it again this year?

The UGM is once again offering a hot meal for $3.29 during their Christmas campaign. Together, let’s feed Christmas dinner to 100 individuals in need of hope and show them they are still valued members of our community.

Would you join me, please? Click the orange ChipIn button below to give whatever feels right for you at this time. This ChipIn widget expires on Sunday, December 9th. I will forward the total amount to the UGM the following day.

Thank you and best wishes to you!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

I do something similar. In about two weeks I’ll cook a big dinner for 20 of Clint’s family members,. They will bring food as well, and we’re boxing up the leftovers in ” to-go” boxes for those that have less than they should. Clint’s Uncle is the pastor of a church – which is where we’re having our meal – so we won’t have any trouble identifying people in need.
Good for you for helping those less fortunate than you!
