Sometimes we are stirred to give.
To give beyond an offering plate at church or an extra $1 at the checkout.
Sometimes we want to be more compassionate and to share what we have.
We are so blessed to live where we live.
Even when our bank accounts have dipped too low, or we have lost our job, when we struggle with time management we still live in a part of the world that is so blessed.
Often it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the need.
For there is need everywhere.
The teenager at the freeway underpass, the homeless encampment you can see from the bike path, the local food kitchen, the children in the slums of countries far across the sea, the many non profit agencies that need our money, our time and attention.
We may have the financial resources. We may not.
We may have the time, we may have littles under our feet.
Our hearts are called to give. To share.
For everyone this looks different.
I thought I would take a post a week to share some places to give...if you are moved too.
Sevenly is an amazing place to start.
Every week a new project...
Buy a tee and support the cause of the week.
