This is the first year for "Giving Tuesday". Instead of pulling from what I've read I'll let you do your own research on this topic. :)
As you research and contemplate ways you may give, I would like to offer you an option to consider (there are many great options...this is just one close to our heart) - Love Without Boundaries.
We love Love Without Boundaries.....
There are people out there who I have never met, but my family will be eternally grateful to them. People who gave to help fund Meisi's surgery which was several thousand dollars. After her surgery, Meisi was still very tiny and required a very special but expensive formula to survive. People heard the need and they gave. We are so thankful for each and every one of those people. We are so thankful for Love Without Boundaries who provided all these life saving and giving therapies after they accepted the call when Meisi was just 2 months old and dying. Amazing things can happen when the Holy Spirit leads people to move and they follow. God still does miracles. :)
If you are contemplating sending money to an organization or charity but haven't found one yet that you can trust or feel comfortable with. I urge you to learn more about Love Without Boundaries (LWB). You can support precious children who have medical needs like Meisi did or nutrition needs like Meisi did or help provide education like our dear friend's girls received. It is amazing what even a small amount each month can do in the life of a child. LWB provides wonderful updates on the child or program you are supporting with pictures and information. We were blessed that our referral file included a few of Meisi's medical updates LWB had sent to those supporting her in her first few months she was with them. There are no words to express the gratitude for all those who gave, prayed for and loved on her before we even knew her. We are so thankful to Love Without Boundaries for answering the call.
We are not all called to adopt, we are all called to do something.
Is "Giving Tuesday" your day to start?
