So....lucky for me - they're planning to throw a pizza party at Kolfe (my son's orphanage)! Woot! A huge pizza party for 130 teenage boys who have never eaten pizza before in their lives (a double-shame because Ethiopian pizza is freakin' awesome!)! I digress. Anyway - IMAGINE the awesomeness of that experience! I so wish I could be there for that. However, they've promised to take a bazillion pictures so it will be like we were all there. Minus the grease stains.
The thing is, they need some coinage to make it happen. This is where I see a huge opportunity for you and me. If you have kids, this is a great opportunity to teach them about loving others, sacrificially. Sure they can contribute their chore money or their birthday money, but how about planning a pizza night at home and instead of ordering pizza, eat PB&J sandwiches and giving all the money you would have spent on pizza to this cause? LOVE that. Or how about skipping lunch and sending the $5 you would have spent on a sandwich? Just thinking out loud here.
Whatever way/amount you decide to contribute would be great, seriously. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be a part of something so good!
Check out their blogs and their journeys here: Amy & here: Lindsey. I love these girls and know their HUGE hearts for orphans.
