Senior Citizens are God's gift to fundraising!
Thank God for our senior citizens when it comes to fundraising for the St. Nicholas Project! Just this week, I was visiting two elderly sisters who never married and never had children. But when they found out about the cookbook that I put together as a fundraiser for the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children, they wanted to be a part of it. They were so excited! (You can order a copy of the cookbook from this page).
One of their other older friends had bought a copy a few months ago, and the women decided they wanted to help the children's home, also. And they insisted on paying for the cookbook--no "freebees"! So, I made a personal visit just to deliver the cookbook which I autographed for them. I confess we also gossiped a bit about people we knew and had a lot of laughs. I asked them if I could take their picture "advertising" the cookbook and they said, "Sure!"
Where would we be in the fundraising ministry without our seniors? I think that their life experience of seeing people in need, living through economic depressions, wars, misfortunes, sicknesses and the death of family and friends, gives them a unique perspective on being thankful, generous and charitable.
So, I would like to dedicate this week's blog to Gloria and Eileen, who don't know anything about blogs, and know even less about computers, but they know a whole lot about helping the boys and girls at Kurn Hattin Homes. God bless you, Gloria and Eileen, and all of you senior citizens who give small amounts and large amounts to charity because you have hearts full of love for children in need.
