The Adventure is in the Doing

I know that it's hard to imagine, but I'm not a tremendously adventurous woman. I like to watch movies and knit and read and eat soup. I'm not someone who, you know, DOES stuff.

But as I've mentioned before, there is a group that is seeking adventure in one of the best ways possible. The folks at Nuru International are working together with people who are in extreme poverty to help them make a better life. Not with a handout, but by teaching them better sanitation, helping to dig wells and teaching them better farming techniques. The repayment on loans from Nuru is 98% and the crops are averaging a 300% increase. Here's a little bit about how Nuru works:

We have a way to be a part of this adventure. I'm partnering with several other bloggers to work together to pray for the work that Nuru is doing and also to donate and ask our readers to donate as well.

Though I don't have the most current numbers, I know that as of last week we were significantly behind on our goal of $7000. We only have a few days left for this particular project. I do hope that you will consider making a donation. Even a small amount can have a huge impact on the lives of those who are a part of what Nuru does. (If you choose to donate, please include "24/7 Project" in the donation notes so we can see the total after Easter.)

Come be a part of this adventure. Let's DO something.

Be hope. Be light. Be Nuru.
