This week we have been talking a lot about serving others. Every year in November, we practice this during our Be Rich campaign—a time when we have the opportunity to be rich toward others. This incredible wave of generosity is having a huge impact all over the world. You may be wondering what has happened since last November. Want a little update on Be Rich?
Here's a glimpse into what you’ve done . . .
There are stories of BIG impact:
- Three hundred at-risk students will have a full summer of day camp through The Place of Forsyth.
- Through MedShare, we contributed to 100,000 clean birthing kits that are saving the lives of moms and babies in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
- North Fulton Community Charities now has a year's supply of hotel vouchers to keep roofs over the heads of the ever-increasing number of homeless families they see.
- Over 400 families in San Lorenzo, Honduras, will soon have access to clean water and sanitary environments.
- The Good Samaritan Health Center of Atlanta provided medical, dental, and psychiatric care for the homeless one extra Friday every month for a year.
- We have given over $900,000 to local schools to meet the basic needs and improve the educational opportunities of at-risk children.
We love the BIG impact, but we also love the individual stories that come from Be Rich. Stories of people like . . .
- Margarite, the single mom who now has food on her table and a little less stress in her life.
- Paula, the rarely acknowledged school bus driver who felt appreciated upon opening a note and gift card.
- Alex, the formerly homeless veteran who received furniture for his new apartment and job skills training and is now employed and self-sufficient.
- Sophia, a hurting middle schooler from a low-income family who received professional counseling to help her navigate her suicidal thoughts.
Big and small, your generosity is changing lives, organizations, and communities.
