To build an orphanage

image

Here’s the bottom line. There are 20 million orphans in India, and we are building 2 orphanages that will house 50 orphans at a time each. That’s 100 changed lives at a time.

How can you participate? All I’m asking for is $15. That’s less than buying lunch for 2 people. For $15 we can build two orphanages! Here’s the video with the details and then I’ll add some more of my thoughts…

What am I doing?

Well, both my wife and I are contributing to this program directly – we’re putting our money where are mouths are. The account that we started here was for our children to participate as well. So, it’s kind of like when your kids want to do something for school and you end up taking the cookies with you to work.. that’s sort of what I’m doing here. I’m also giving you the opportunity to doing something great. To change lives. To change the world.

You can start your own “team” or join ours.
