Commit just fifty cents a day – $15 a month – and you can give a child in Haiti an education.
Real hope. A future. In the aftermath of the earthquake, these are in short supply. Haiti’s government can afford to educate only 10% of the island’s children. The rest are left to find private or church schools, often with tuition their families can’t afford, or no school at all.
The Missions Foundation Change a Life Program can help. We’ll see that your contribution covers not only one child’s school tuition, but uniform, backpack, even textbooks and supplies. First we’ll fill the Siloe Baptist School in Grande-Guave – where Baptist volunteers are rebuilding both church and school – then Croix-Hilaire School in Petit-Guave. To keep costs at a true minimum, we’ve decided on no individual photo or letter exchange for now. Instead, find photos of the actual kids online. Then find it in your heart to help.
Cherish Every Moment – The Dax Locke Foundation
Dax Ryan Locke was born to Austin and Julie Locke on June 26th, 2007. At the age of 13 months Dax was diagnosed with AML M7 Leukemia. He was life-flighted to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital where he underwent two bone marrow transplants. Both of his parents were able to give their bone marrow to him. Since his disease was so rare Dax’s treatments were not certain. Dax lost his battle with cancer at the age of 2. The doctors told us they didn’t think he would live till Christmas. Dax passed away on December 30th 2009. During his short life Dax touched many hearts. The town of Washington, Illinois put up their Christmas lights early for Dax and many other people around the world joined in.Dax’s parents were so touched by their experience with St. Jude they decided to raise $1.6 million dollars for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. That is how much it cost to run the hospital for 1 day! St. Jude doesn’t turn anyone away. Not one patient will ever see a bill. They take care of the patients 100% and help the families as well.

Josiah and Friends

During the question and answers portion of the talk Josiah stood up and asked Manute a simple question. The goal of Josiah and Friends is to raise awareness and financial support to build schools in Sudan. A message from Josiah:
