truckThe rainy season has started in Haiti. The issues of just scraping out a living there just got more complicated. Families in the flood plains are still in tent cities. And our teams on the ground are reaching out to them every day with aid – tents, food and encouragement.
 
Maybe as you’ve followed the situation in Haiti, you’ve felt compassion fatigue. But today’s a good day to show afresh that we care and can make a difference.
 
I’ve got $10 in my pocket. And if you’re like most Americans who ate at least one meal today and slept under a roof, you do too.

As I’ve shared before, the spiritual awakening happening in Haiti is unprecedented. We’ve made a long-term investment there. We expect to see hundreds of new churches planted as the revival gains
momentum.

One thing we could really use is a vehicle to transport all those people and supplies in Haiti. And we’ve got an opportunity to get one almost for free, but we need your help to do it.
 
As you know, I love to challenge you readers to step up and demonstrate your faith in tangible ways, though rarely with your finances (we’ve been hit up too many times, so I prefer not to). You’ve never ceased to amaze me in how you respond.

Today, I’m going to this website and donating the $10 in my pocket to AIM’s fund-raising campaign via Razoo’s March Goodness Tournament. And if enough of you do the same, we’ll win $1,250 in free prize money and be in the running with three other non-profits for a $10,000 prize. $11,250 would cover about 75% of the cost of that vehicle down in Haiti.

The deadline for donations is March 30th and we’ll win Round One by having the highest amount of unique donors. That means that we don’t necessarily have to raise the most money, just the most donors. This is a great way to multiply your giving-your investment of as little as $10 could help us pay for that much-needed vehicle to transport needed supplies to those hurting in Haiti.
 
*By the way, 100% of donations to AIM through Razoo make it through to our organization. Because of their funding model, they don’t take anything off of the top, so no matter what, your money gets to AIM. And if you want to donate more than $10, you’ll take us further toward our goal.
