Please send help not cards.

Dearest friends and family,
If you would like to send something for Christmas, please send help to those in need. I love and appreciate you all so much, but I also am doing well. I live in a home I own (or at least am capable of paying the mortgage on). I am surrounded by family. I have a job (or 3) and food.

What I don’t have and desperately desire is a world of peace where all of my neighbors feel loved and cared for.If you would like to send something for Christmas, please send help to those in need.  So, a card and stamp costs about $1 (49 cent postage + card). Please take that dollar and donate it to a local charity. Invest it in people and say a prayer when you do that your dollar be wisely spent to the glory of His Kingdom and the care of His people.

If you planned to call or text me, please instead use one of the following text donations:

  •  Text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and tornadoes
  • Text PREVENT to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross and help us vaccinate children against measles..
  • Text AID to 80077 to give $10 to HOPE worldwide‘s general disaster response fund, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes and medical emergencies.
  • Text PEACEFUND to 88588 to give to Peace Fund Helping Hand initiative providing specific assistance to a child facing insurmountable obstacles in their lives.

If you had just planned to drop by, drop by an elderly neighbor, shut in or homeless shelter and visit with someone who needs a smile.

Thank you so much for loving me, and thinking of me this time of year. May God bless you and keep you.

Chris
