DUMP DAY 2012

BREAKING NEWS: The awesome people at Bread For a Hungry World have just announced that for every $6.50 donated on their site (link is below), they will add an additional $50 to your $6.50 donation. That will make your $6.50 donation to the Dump Fund actually a $56.50 donation. Awesome. Surely everyone can give $6.50. Bread for a Hungry World will do this up to 25k.

“Why $6.50?” I asked. Because everyone can give $6.50 and to remind everyone that it only takes $6.50 to buy 10 meals in Honduras.

** Here are the rules: this is good for today and tomorrow only, AND you can only give up to 3 times per household.

SPREAD THE WORD … Please let ALL your friends know. We need 500 people to give $6.50 … we need that $25k they are offering. :)

Thank you Bread.

——————————————–

This is a day that we stop to consider how blessed we are materially. A day we stop to be the “Good Samaritan” in the story Jesus told, choosing NOT to pass by on the other side of the road. We choose to help today. We choose to make a difference.

THIS is the day will WILL make a difference in the people who live, work and eat at the Tegucigalpa dump. They are the people of the dump. Dirty people. People who have names, lives, needs.

We are blessed people. We eat until we’re full. We don’t go to bed hungry. We live in homes that are MORE than adequate. We have an abundance of everything … food, clothing and “stuff.”  Please understand there’s nothing wrong with being blessed with material things, but not sharing what we have is wrong!  Just “realizing how blessed we are” is not enough. Feeling sorry for the hungry and the poor of this world is NOT what Jesus was looking for from us. Poor people don’t need our sympathy or our pity, they need our compassion. The same compassion that the Good Samaritan had, one that took action. For me to sit back and simply say, “How sad,” makes me no different than the Priest and Levite that passed on the other side.

So what are we going to do today?

Let’s give a little. Any amount would be great. Here are two ways to give. You can give via snail mail by sending your check to:

Honduras Hope

PO BOX 9222

Columbus MS, 39705 (attn: Dump Fund).

(This is a tax deductible donation)

Also give ONLINE,

You can give safely and securely online by going to Bread For A Hungry World’s website, and on the top right there’s a “Give to the Dump” donation button. Bread for a Hungry World is helping partner in our work at the dump.  (This is also a tax deductible donation.)

I’ll also remind you that my Paypal button is always on this page, and while you’re welcome to use it, please understand that my Paypal is NOT going to be a tax deductible donation.

If you donate today, we’d love to keep a running total of donations. So if you don’t mind, leave a comment on this blog saying something like, “The Morgan family gives $100″, or your comment can be totally anonymous by not adding a name.  That’ll give us the ability to say, “We’re currently at … “

We have 3 give aways this year…

  • If you make a donation of $25 or more, I’ll send you a “Honduras Dump Ministry” 1 inch neoprene band (See Picture Below). These aren’t the little silicone bands; these are the nice ones. You can show off your support of the Dump Ministry with one of these bracelets. I’ve been wearing mine for about a month now, and I love it.  There is only a limited amount of these, so it’ll be first come first serve.
  • Also, the awesome people at Bread for a Hungry World are going to give away Dump Day t-shirts to anyone who makes a donation of $50 or more (picture below). I want one of these so I’ll be making my donation through them early this morning and leaving the amount I pledged below.
  • Also we have several prints of this picture (16×24) left over from last year. If you’d like one that is signed and numbered by the artist, we’d like to give you one. We’re asking for a $150 donation for a print and it’ll be mailed to your home. It is essential that if you want one or all of the giveaways that you include somewhere with your donation, what you want (a shirt, bracelet and/or print) ALONG with your name and address.

Here is a picture of the "Honduras Dump Ministry" bracelet

The very cool Dump T-Shirt that Bread for a Hungry World is offering.

PLEASE help spread the word today. Let everyone know (via Facebook, Twitter, blog, email, etc) what’s going one. Encourage everyone to give.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink… I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” ~ Jesus

Thank you VERY much!

  2. Sue says:

    I just donated $19.50 @ the Bread website. I intended for that to be the $6.50 x 3. I might have messed up. Should I have donated $6.50 three seperate times? If so, let me know and I can go back and do it correctly.
