Do You Remember That Song?

In 1984, a group of renown musicians got together to sing.  It wasn't just any song they sang and they didn't sing it for a particular audience.  No, they sang to raise awareness and funds for the people of Ethiopia because millions there were in danger of starvation.  Click here if you want to listen.  Now, don't laugh when you see the hairstyles, makeup and outfits worn in the 1980's!  

Now, in 2013, there is a hunger that is stalking another country: Zimbabwe.  Thankfully, the situation isn't as severe as it was in Ethiopia in 1984, but it IS severe and children no longer can walk to school because they are too weak to do so.  Children and elderly people are dying because they just don't have enough food to carry them through another day. My heart breaks for them and I pray for rain and for hope for them.

During this holiday season we can all get together and do something to help others.  While we celebrate with food, family and friends, we can also celebrate the giving of life to others who just don't have what they need to survive for much longer.  Will you join us in giving hope?

For $1500, we can deliver enough food to feed 256 children and guardians for an entire month.  Surely, together, we can do this...we can share of our riches so that children in our programs can make it though this terrible time.  When they come out on the other side of it, we'll be there with seeds and livestock, ready to teach them how to grow veggies with little/no water so that next time the rains don't come, they are able to eat and survive without external help.

If you have questions or want to do more with our organization, write me at tweaver@AFCAids.org.  I am here to help.

Happy Holidays, all,
