Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Help us join together to help Guanacaste, Costa Rica families and businesses to produce meals and support for all that are struggling with no employment and financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis. This area of Costa Rica is 99% dependent on Tourism. With the whole world shut down, their livelihoods are shut down. These are hard working, loving people that had the rug pulled out from under them. Sharky's will be joined by several other restaurants in the area to use its kitchen and staff to cook-prepare meals to deliver to as many people as possible. We'll be implementing this process with respect to the recommended social distancing and health standards set by local governments. In addition to pre-prepared food, we will also be working with other organizations to deliver pantry and other essential items to those in need. We need your help to keep these families fed during this time of crisis. WE NEED LOTS OF HELP TO IMPLEMENT. Those of you in the area that are interested in this initiative or know someone who can help, please contact via text or whatsapp only to 8729-8274 #TamarindoStrong #DoMoreBeMore Thanks for caring!
My heart is breaking all over again tonight. Grief and loss is so easily reignited. Last night, Rebecca and I sat down and watched Footloose. The movie starts off with a tragic car accident killing a group of high school kids on their way home from a dance. The movie is a true story from Elmore City, OK. The community was forever impacted. After losing Finn in an accident in November, even watching that scene made our stomachs turn. I just heard from my cousins in Tishomingo, OK… A mere 60 miles from where Footloose’s sad story was based on, a new, community changing, accident has happened. Six local high school girls, around 16 years old, were on their way home from lunch and ended up colliding with a semi. None of them survived. It’s an incredibly heartbreaking accident. These families need our help! This is an extremely fresh situation and lots of info hasn’t been released. Tishomingo is a small, rural Oklahoman town where everyone knows everyone and everyone cares about everyone. This is going to be hard. If you want additional info, just google Tishomingo. My uncle, Bobby Waitman, is the superintendent in Tish. For now, we’re trying to raise enough money to cover the funeral costs for all of the families involved. It’s a lofty goal but we have a few people/families that have committed to matching funds. Having gone through this so recently, I know how important it is to be able to focus on the grieving. If we can give some dollars to help these families get some space to grieve, it’s money well spent. Just that time is life changing. Please think about joining us. As usual, every dollar raised will be going directly to the families and split between them. This is just a start. Thank you for sacrificing to help others! “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. I come to give life abundant!” #stopthethief #finnsarmy
A group of four of us will be heading to Haiti on December 13th. We’ll be meeting up with our partner, Farmer John’s butcher shop, to add on to the building. PUR is a 30% partner in the butcher shop. Farmer John’s is dramatically changing the definition of business in Haiti. https://www.farmerjohnshaiti.com/ To see some of the projects in Haiti, check out www.friendsofifosud.org • 80% of the proceeds go back into ministry opportunity in country. • FJ’s provides an avenue for every family with a stick and a cow/goat to bring their animal to market. Most do not have any way to get revenue from their animals… until Farmer John’s • Provides a stable source of clean protein for both high end resorts and local families in Haiti. Farmer John’s has been asked to build a facility to process and can chicken to have on site for disaster relief when hurricanes come. It’s a huge opportunity to bring revenue as well as providing assistance to those in need when disaster strikes! At a time when most people are pulling out of Haiti due to corruption, we’re wanting to double down. Without a doubt, Farmer John’s is becoming a rock for industry in Haiti to build on. This trip will be focusing on two things. • Building the cannery/processing plant for disaster relief. • Having a Christmas party at 3 schools and delivering stockings and gifts to roughly 800 kids. We’d love for you guys to get as excited about these projects as us. If you’re looking for a worthy cause to support, this is it! Long term or Christmas donations, it will all go to making a difference in Haiti. Budget: $20,000 Kid’s meals/stockings 800 at $10/child = $8,000 Building Construction (concrete only) $12,000 ish for this phase. www.purinternational.org www.farmerjohnshaiti.com www.friendsofifosud.org www.loveachild.com
Our mission statement at PUR is 'caring for orphans and widows during their time of need'. Now is 100% that time for millions fleeing Ukraine. Anna is like a daughter to one of our partners and founders of PUR. She’ll be heading to Poland this weekend. She’ll be living there indefinitely to help refugees coming across the border. 100% of what’s given will go directly to aiding people fleeing, 50% of who are kids. Not many opportunities to give can commit all of the funds to the need. This is a great way to help. Please read Anna’s goal below and let’s send her over with some extra resources! We’d like people to get behind Anna and give some monthly support to go towards this mission! ---------- Hello, my name is Anna. I am Ukrainian (I live in the US now), and much of my family and friends live in Ukraine. I will be traveling to Poland to help support the refugees leaving Ukraine due to the Russian invasion. I want to support in any way I can, including: - Helping provide food, clothing, shelter, and emotional support to those in need - Coordinating families to find somewhere to stay or coordinating their travel to other countries. - Helping to coordinating shipments with first aid supplies from United States that will go to Ukraine. - Putting a smile on anyone’s face that I can - Anything else that comes up for those directly affected! I will use any funds raised here to help in these efforts. It will be used directly to those in need of support. Thanks for caring!
