One Idea how to Save Ca$h to Help Save Lives
Want to sponsor a family adopting an orphan, and/or sponsor a child? Not sure how to make it happen on a budget? How about biking to work?
Most of our readers know by now that I have been on a journey this year to lose weight (41 pounds down, about 50 to go). Part of that journey is creating a habit and lifestyle of being active. As part of that, I have been biking to and from work a couple of days a week. I was commuting by bike to my offices this week, and was thinking about how much gas money I was saving by riding. I will save at least $50 dollars in my gas allowance a month! Now, I could use that money to bump up my cable package, or buy myself something nice. But why not change lives with it instead?
$19 a month will go to a boy at Lifesong schools.
$20 a month is going to Village To Village International designated to the Fry family. They are adopting two orphans from Ethiopia.
$10 leftover I will take my wife out for coffee, and enjoy spending time with her.
What can you give up to gain!? Sounds strange but I’m giving up driving to work 3 days a week to gain health, gain the privilege to help others, and gain some extra date time with my wife.
