“A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.” — Pope Francis
The money we raise through this page will help CRS provide long-term solutions to poverty in more than 100 countries. We would like to raise $2000 (or more!) through this CRS Ark of Hope fundraiser to purchase items such as tree saplings and chickens, goats and other farm animals for people in developing countries. These things will enable them to feed their families and become self-sustaining.
When you donate to CRS, you:
- Provide shelter for families displaced by natural and man-made disasters
- Ensure that children in drought-stricken regions are well nourished
- Give girls around the world the chance to go to school
- Help families and communities become self-sufficient
- And so much more!
Please help our poorest brothers and sisters overseas by making a donation to our campaign! You can donate on-line through this page throughout the month of August or stop by our table at the SRW Festival August 13-15. We would love to see you and talk more about the great need and this easy way to respond to Jesus’ call to feed the hungry (Matthew 31-45).
