Sometimes I think about all the frivolous things I spend my money on. You know, those things that you really don’t need but somehow you find a way to justify that purchase? I believe we’re all guilty but I’m not here to convict you, but too merely help you think twice before you grab that next impulse buy.
“World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.”
They work in over one-hundred countries despite one’s religion, race, ethnicity or gender. It is a beautiful organization composed of people who simply want to be the hands and feet of Christ. In giving back to people who don’t impulse buy because there are no frivolous things to purchase. World Vision provides livestock, clean water, education, food and shelter amongst many other things to those around the world without the proper provisions.
“I’m ecstatic to be working with them today to tell you about the onecup.org project. “The One Cup Project was founded on a simple idea: your purchases have power. We want to use that power to do something really good, something for more than just profit, something that can change the world.”
“Every $13 bag you buy at www.onecup.org sends a $2 donation to World Vision, which is then multiplied 5.5x by matching grant partners (USAID, Care, Land O’ Lakes Foundation) so $13 goes to fund the good work World Vision does in Africa. The One Cup Project has a 0% administrative cost.”
“Dollar for dollar – now that’s revolutionary. It’s business and non-profit working together. Come change the world with us.”
