Inspiration

I received this email yesterday morning, and it moved me so very deeply:

Erika,

Your blog post today was wonderful. And I’ve been toying with an idea that
I hope you can help me with – OR maybe you can direct me to someone else
that can help me.

I’ve been trying to be a better steward of our food money and I was hoping
to donate the money that we save each pay period to help feed those in need.
I could definitely give to the food bank or give more to the Union Gospel
mission but I was wondering about a more intimate and direct option.

I’m wondering if you know of a families OR maybe two families that I could
purchase a bi-weekly $50 grocery gift card for. I would appreciate any
feedback or input on my idea that you might have. I’m also hoping to find
some friends to do some similar giving on a purely personal basis.

It would be an honor to partner with someone in you neighborhood to care for folks in L.A. who are in this kind of need.

Your help is GREATLY appreciated.

I have already contacted this person with some information on a family in our community who could so greatly benefit from this kind of generosity. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

  1. Thank heavens for someone who wants to give in a personal and direct way … I so strongly believe in the person-to-person approach, and every single example encourages me.
