Raise Funds for the Poor!
You can raise funds and community awareness about poverty in the Caribbean and Latin America by sponsoring a local event.
Think about all the special gifts God has given you. Won’t you use these gifts to give something back to God by helping the poor?
When you raise funds to help those in dire need, you also strengthen your own community. You will experience the deep personal satisfaction that comes from working with others who share your commitment to this worthy cause.
How Do You Do It?
The first thing to remember is to have fun! Involve everyone you can, including all your neighbors and the extended community. Invite your parish, congregation, school, youth ministry, community service organizations, social clubs and co-workers to take part. Ask anyone and everyone to volunteer. Remember, we make the greatest difference in the lives of the destitute when we unite our efforts in collective Christian charity.
