YOUR $15 RESCUES 50 ORPHANS
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2011
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 27, 2011
GUESS WHAT! WE'RE GOING FOR TWO!
Reaching our goal of $67,500 with 36 days left in the project brings us to a crossroad in our journey. Do we call it a success? Or do we continue with movement and build two orphanages, rescue twice the children, and make twice the difference. We said it from the beginning, we are declaring we can make a difference, a big difference. Lets continue to take a stand—build two orphanages and rescue 100 children.
This year, Elevate is gearing up to do something bigger than we have ever done before—we are choosing to rise up and take action to help end someone's suffering in this world. Human trafficking, poverty, child slavery, hunger, millions of orphans with no one to turn to and more. The situation is breath-taking but we can make a difference. That's right, we're declaring we can make a difference in these overwhelming problems that seem so hopeless and plague our humanity. Instead of looking away or ignoring the problems completely, we are choosing to face them head on. By partnering with Angel House through the 15for50 project, we are imparting hope to 50 suffering children in Andhra Pradesh, India. Will you join us in building an orphanage from the ground up.
Elevate (Student Ministry of Milestone Church) doesn't build orphanages, but the good news is Angel House does and we love their blanket approach to all aspects of the child's life. Angel House is an organization that builds and staffs orphanages in some of the most neglected regions of India, including the state of Andhra Pradesh. In these orphanages children are forever removed from the slums and given a safe and comfortable place to sleep, nourishing food and a first-rate education taught by loving people who strive to make a difference in those kids lives.
We have 10 weeks to raise the funds needed for this project. Angel House will break ground on the orphanage in December and in June of 2012 a small team (including the student who raised the most money) will travel to Andhra Pradesh, India for the dedication ceremony.
