For a long time I've known about Samaritan's Purse and told you a few things about it. A few weeks ago I received a gift magazine from them about gifts to give to poor people in need of things to make money. I was really interested in the honey bees and the baby chicks.
For $30 that you donate, a poor family in need of money gets a honey bee hive so that they can sell the honey and the bee's wax to pay for education, health care and for food they need to survive. Also, with the honey bees they pollinate plants and crops which also help them survive.
When I first got the magazine, my gramma and I went through it to see what we thought might be a good thing to do. I liked the honey bees.
Then a few weeks later, I got some mail from my Aunt and Uncle. For Christmas they donated the $30 dollars in my name to Samaritans Purse for the honey bee hive. I was so excited. I just couldn't get over it. Thank you so much, Uncle Dan and Aunt Glennis. It was a really awesome Christmas present except I opened it before Christmas. I wish I could know where and what family got it. I hope through that they get the money they need to survive.
Here's a link to my past blog entries about Samaritan's Purse. I made shoe boxes again this year, also. You, too, can check the catalog to see if you want to send anything.
Merry Christmas--bye everyone
