The word sacrifice is a little scary isn’t it? It may be easy to sacrifice for those we love, but what about sacrificing for someone we don’t know? Sacrifice is being willing to give up something good for something better.
Since it is the holiday season, there are many opportunities to watch the holiday classics. One of my favorites is “It’s a Wonderful Life”. The main character, George Bailey, sa
crificed everything he wanted for the people around him. At the end of the movie, he receives the ultimate assurance that his life is best lived putting others interests before his own. It is such a great example of just how valuable the gift of life is, and how one person can have a huge impact on the life of so many others.
Supply Hope has a wonderful giving opportunity that can truly change the life of a family living in poverty in Nicaragua. Basically, it costs $1,000 to give a family the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty by operating their own micro-franchise to earn a steady, reliable income. Using our “Build a Store" link you can build a shopping cart of items that they need to get started – from $30 items to $300 items. It’s fun, and it matters deeply to families who need hope!
So, as we enter this holiday season, let’s take the time to make a difference in the life of someone else.
