The first month of the Luxury Fund was great! Thanks for your help! Our first month was actually only 3 weeks, because The Luxury Fund started on July 10. In that 3 weeks, $200 came into the fund. We divided that money in 4 parts and sent $50 each to Blood Water Mission, Compassion International, International Justice Mission and Love 146. If you're not familiar with these organizations, check out the links to the right. They all do amazing things for people around the world. That $200 will go a long way with these organizations. For instance, every $10 given to the Compassion International Malaria fund, buys a mosquito net for a child in Africa. Blood Water Mission can provide clean drinking water for an African person for an entire year for $1 through their well digging programs. Just think how far your Red Bull or Mocha Frappuccino money will go if you give it up a few times a month.
Let's try to double this month what we did in July. Do you think we can send $400 out on September 1st? Let's try and see what happens.
Thanks for being a part of this!!
There will be a Luxury Fund website up soon. Stay tuned.
