Cupcakes and Cans

Cupcakes and Cans some of the little things!

Who would have thought that cupcakes could help build homes for orahans in South Africa or that recyling cans could build water wells for villages in Africa.

The little things really do make a difference!

I am friends with two amazing guys who are making a difference by using the little things in their hands to help children in Africa. One I have already written about and he is Ty, my nephew. Since Nov. of last year we have collected cans from ditches, parking lots, trash cans, work, and friends. He has made about $165.00 and has sent it to The Mission: Water for Life a James Robinson ministry. They are building water wells and there is a company matching all funds sent for this project. It is about four or five thousand dollars to build one well.

"The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them." (Isaiah 41:17)

4500 children die each day form unsafe water and a lack of sanitation facilities. This should not be!! Please don't waste water!

The other guy is someone I work for. He is giving ten cents off of every cupcake we sale to an organization call Ten Thousand Homes in South Africa. Just ten cents can make a difference. In about six weeks time we sold just about enough cupcakes to build one home. We are also collecting change, because we believe our change and change someones world. It can actually build a home for a family, cause all the little things add up!

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." (James 1:27)

The question is: What are the little things you can be doing to make a difference in someones life?

Think about it and ask God to show you the little things in your hands!! Then, take action!
