feed the forgotten

***taken from Amy Bottomly's blog this morning****(taken from Brandi's blog) :)

Feed The Forgotten.
Too often we hear heartbreaking stories like this and do nothing. We feel helpless. . . and so we move on. Not this time. There are people DYING in Uganda right now. There are children who's bellies are hungry and aching. There are mamas who are too weak to stand and babies begging to be held. There are people trapping termites hoping for food and eating dung in helplessness. DO NOT CAVE TO DESPAIR. YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.

Join us and Children's HopeChest to Feed The Forgotten... (
CLICK HERE to give now) (note: please write FEED THE FORGOTTEN in the notes section)
For $0.14, we can feed someone a meal of posho and beans. (posho is cornmeal, which is filling and beans are protein). 
Take that in for a moment. . .

$0.14 a meal

$2.86 for 20 days

$1 per FAMILY

$20 feed a family for 20 days.

How much was my Orange Tree Frozen Yogurt yesterday? How much was Josh's Starbucks? The bigger question is how much am 
I willing to give up so that others might eat?

Remember Jesus story of the Good Samaritan? Remember how his very neighbors walked right by him? They probably looked at him with pity. . .probably thought "oh poor guy, that breaks my heart" but the fact is THEY DID NOTHING.

What will you do? These children are starving. . .

Will you help? The money raised will feed those precious children. There are 3 - 4 villages that Hope Chest is targeting (They are hoping for more after they see how much money we can raise!) to bring food relief to asap. These people are literally starving. . and waiting for you to act. Will you help? Even with paypal fees (2-3%) even $1 will feed 6 people! You CAN make a difference.

Spread the word, blog about it, facebook it, twitter it, ask your church or school or business to give, post the blog badge anything. Truly, we are begging you. . .on behalf of these children not to forget this post and move on to the next in your google reader list. Stop, pray, act.
GIVE TO FEED THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN! (note: please write FEED THE FORGOTTEN in the notes section when you give)

I took my post from Brandi's blog :)

I am excited to see how much money they are able to raise for this and in turn how many meals will be provided! :)

thank you SOOOOOO much for posting! These kids are so precious. I'm going to post some videos of them playing after we fed them a meal when we were there last month. They are just adorable and it kills me that their bellies are so hungry and hurting right now. Thanks for being part of HIS DELIVERANCE (Psalm 107:6)

Thank you for this. As we go through the adoption process I often wonder if we should just scrap it and use the money to help the orphans left behind, as well as others oppressed by poverty. The burden feels so huge. A wise friend repeatedly reminds me that we can do both. I am so thankful for those who work to give us opportunities to contribute (like this post today).

Thank you, Em! What a great cause. Sometimes it seems so overwhelming all that needs to be done. But then other times it is so simple.
