New button for Into the Streets of Ethiopia

Recently a fellow adoptive mom and now non-profit aid organizer Kara Portilla asked me to create a button for a new campaign for their new web site, "Into the Streets of Ethiopia".
Here's a bit more about the project:

$6 FOR 1

Every six seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes.

1 2 3 4 5 6


What if you were told the dirty, sticky change from the bottom of your purse or your car floor could make a difference in the life of a child? The change that we so carelessly toss in an empty drawer could be enough to fill a child's belly. How many pennies do we pass by on the street? It's only a penny, right? Those wasted pennies and dirty thrown-away-dimes could add up to enough to provide a meal to a child living in poverty. A child that is starving from malnutrition. 30 cents is all it takes to feed a child a hot meal. $6 will provide a child one meal a day for an entire month.

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.Mother Teresa

James 2:8 "Yes indeed, it is good when you truly obey our Lord's command, "You must love and help your neighbors just as much as you love and take care of yourself."

Into the Streets of Ethiopia is excited to offer a new campaign entitled, $6 FOR 1.



The challenge is simple! Can you and your family gather enough change (in a 30 day time frame) to help feed the hungry in Ethiopia? This is an excellent way for parents to engage their children in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Saving all those loose pennies, counting them at the end of the month, is a practical way of sharing and caring for others.

$6 FOR 1, will be an on-going effort in feeding the children involved with Children's Future Ethiopia. The second Friday of each month will be dedicated to $6 FOR 1. We will provide updates on the feeding program in Addis Ababa as well as reports from YOU! What is your family doing to make a difference for 1? We want photos of you in action!
