Noteworthy News: Box of Love [NYC]

Answer the Call.

Here's Life Inner City of NYC is doing a great and mighty work this Thanksgiving: compiling and giving out their annual Box of Love.  Thousands of the poor and hungry in NYC will go without adequate food this Thanksgiving--and Here's Life is hoping to remedy this reality.

Be inspired by their mission this Thanksgiving by
watching the video (it's brilliant, produced by Here's Life).

How can YOU help?  By contributing to my roommate, Liz's, Box of Love Fund here.  Click "Donate" to add to Liz's fund!

What is the point?  Why give?  

"Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles, and refuse to let the world corrupt us." 
James 1:27

To answer the call is two-fold: We take a stand against selfishness and personal gain by counteracting the standards of this world.  We turn it upside down.  And secondly, we respond to Jesus' call to care for those people in need who struggle to help themselves.

Please pray before giving to make sure it is something God is personally calling YOU to do.  But if you get a resounding YES from Him, will you answer the call with me, ladies (and gents, if a few of you happen to be reading)?  

Can we pull together as "Team Identity Project" and raise $100 for Liz to use in creating Boxes of Love (feeds about three families!)?  I am confident that we can!  

Thanks for considering it...if you have any questions for myself or Liz, please post them below!  We will find answers for you.

Let's ANSWER THE CALL!
