Youth Councils 2012 T-Shirt Fundraising: WE HIT THE GOAL!

Yes, that’s right! Because of your generous support, we were able to not only raise the amount needed, but surpass our goal just a little bit. Between selling the shirts for $5 a piece and the offering that was taken up on Sunday morning, we raised a total of $3,045.91! The goal was $2,892.00. Wow! We are so unbelievably proud of you guys for putting your money where you mouth is, and helping those in need.

As you know, we were hoping to raise money for Independencia Day Care Centre, a Day Care for children between 2 and 3 years old in the country of Uruguay. According to Uruguayan law, students and teachers have to wear a school uniform in order to attend or teach. Independencia USED TO HAVE 50 children and 15 teachers that were without uniforms, and could not attend because of that. The families the school works with come from very limited economic resources, and it is almost impossible for them to buy their own uniforms.

Thanks to you, all of that is history. Those 50 students can now attend school, and those 15 teachers can teach. If you still want to buy a shirt to give to the cause, it’s not too late. We have 9 mediums and 21 larges left. Use our “Contact” tab to get in touch.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
