HAPPY 41DAY!! Today we join with people all over the world, chose to give up our lunch for one day, and donate what we would have spent to feed students in Rwanda. One meal, for one student, costs just $0.25. How much do you spend on lunch?
$1 feeds 4 children for one day,
$5 feeds 20 children,
$10 feeds 40 children...
In case you're new here, there is a community in Rwanda that is being changed by the efforts of No.41. There are formerly unemployed women and men, working and providing for their families; they have been given a skill, and hope, and love, and the chance to work for themselves and to give back to students in their area in the form of a school feeding program. This school, that had 250 students enrolled before our feeding program came along, today, is 1,300 students and teachers strong and they are bursting at seams and having to turn students away. For many, they have come to school to eat. Possibly their only meal of the day. Not only are the students provided for, but they are being educated. That is generational change.
Over the last 4 years, just on this one day, we have fed over 250,000 meals!! This year, our goal is to raise $8,000 (32,000 meals) in one-time donations and $500 a month in recurring donations. TODAY.
In the simplest way, with cost of your lunch money, YOU get to be a part of true, lasting change. It doesn't change the whole world, but it sure does change someone's. One dollar, one meal, one life at a time.
Thank you for changing the world for one!
