What To Do With All That Money You're Saving.... that we are getting GREAT deals and saving so much money.....what's next???

Here are a couple of ways that you can give your time and/or money to others:

#1 My husband wrote a post on his blog of 50 things that you can do to serve others and your community. In addition to that, you will find two more links each with 50 MORE things that you can do. Find these practical and sometimes challenging lists here.

#2 On Sunday we heard a great sermon from Barrett. He talked about how we can reach out to the fatherless. There are quite a few things that you can do, but I am going to highlight Compassion International

You can adopt a child for $32 monthly, $96 quarterly, or $384 yearly. Where does this money go? Here are some direct quotes from the Compassion International pamphlet: *Opportunities for improved health and education, *training to become a productive citizen, *a way out of poverty, *help in connecting with a local church based program where he or she will feel loved, valued, and protected.

This organization has been operating for over 50 years and conduct independent finanical audits each year. This is your chance to help out a child in over 24 countries for a price for tank or two of gas!
