Our Christmas this year
Wednesday, December 16, 2015
We are an blessed family as my DD pointed it. We all are in financial situations to meet our needs and many of our wants. She suggested and received 100 % agreement to not give each other gifts this year. We each have chosen a charity and ask that donations be made to it.
My DH and I have chosen the American Refuge Committee. Here's a copy of their mission statement:
Founded in 1979, the American Refugee Committee International (ARC) is a humanitarian aid organization that works to help people take back control of their lives. ARC programs serve nearly 2.5 million people each year, providing health care, clean water, sanitation, shelter, gender-based violence prevention services, microenterprise development, disease prevention services, education, legal services, counseling and repatriation assistance. We work in DRC, Rwanda, Uganda, South Sudan, Sudan, Pakistan, Thailand, Myanmar, Somalia, Syria, and Jordan. ARC works with its constituents as partners. Of its 2,000 employees, 95 percent are hired locally.
My greatest wish for all is a roof over your head, clothes on your back, food in your belly and love in your heart.
