One Dollar

JoshGuth2.jpgJoshua Guthrie, son of a friend of mine (George Guthrie), is a young man with a heart to help the poor find water. I’d encourage you to go to his site and donate a dollar. He is calling his vision “dollar for a drink” and is part of building water wells in Sudan. We’d love to see a good response from the Jesus Creed blog community … Joshua’s goal is $8000 by Christmas and he’s over half way.

It’s this simple: give up one drink; give one dollar; build one well.

    Scott, Thankyou for pointing me to this. Joshua, what a great project. Count me in!

    Hi Scot. Thanks for posting this idea. I’ll include Joshua’s project on my blog this week. It’s ideas like this and people’s participation that’s going to make a difference. If I just drink my tap water and donate the money I would have spent on bottled water – I could really help those who have no water. It’s so simple. Thanks again.

    Scot, thanks very much for showcasing Joshua’s project. Of course, I am very proud of him, thankful for his heart for God, and thankful that he has a heart for the disadvantaged. It seems an increasing number of teens are passionate about making a difference in the world, and we need to give them strong encouragement. Your post works to that end. Thanks much.
