The Purpose(This is part of 3 posts. Click here for the first post and here for the second.)
We got to laugh.
We got to eat some good food.
We got to take home some really good treats.
And we got to make a difference in the life of others.
Together 17 women and 1 man pulled their resources, each giving what they could and if they could and we raised $130.
We bought a goat and 2 chickens.
Goats nourish hungry children and families with healthy milk, cheese, and yogurt. Chickens provide fresh eggs that are rich in protein and nutrients, and extra eggs and chicks can be sold to pay for basics. To learn more about what one goat and two chickens can do for a family, click here.
We also were able to give to help mothers in Afghanistan.
Every 30 minutes, an Afghan woman dies of childbirth-related complications. In fact, tragically, almost half of all deaths of women age 15-49 in Afghanistan result from complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths could be prevented with increased access to maternal health services. To learn more about what just a little less than a dollar a day can do for other women, click here.
