The Suubi family, friends of ours in Uganda, currently live in Kampala but are desiring to move north to Gulu. In Uganda, renters must pay the six months lease in advance. The Suubi family needs help raising funds to pay for their lease. They are asking friends to donate just $5. Could you help out?
In Kelly's words:
The Suubi Family is asking people to donate $5. I am asking you to donate $5. Of course you can give more if you want!.
C'mon, this is an easy random act of kindness with many ripple effects. It would very much encourage my friends in Uganda but also eventually help many Ugandans.
I can't go to Uganda, but I can help my friends who are there. Will you?
Here's how: go to this site. Scroll down a bit until you see Suubi family. Put $5 in the first box. The second box is for comments. You can tell them that you heard about their work through this blog. Or, keep it totally random.
I'd love to see them exceed their goal but as of now it seems like a pipe dream. As of 10pm Sunday night, only 6 people have donated since Friday.
Let's get random! Take 5 minutes or less and donate $5 or more. :)
By the way, Suubi is not their real name. From their blog: Suubi is the Lugandan word for "hope." That is what our family wants to bring to the people we work with in Uganda....hope. We are currently working at Vision of Destiny School with Cariana Nash. Our most important goal continues to be pointing those we meet (both at school and where ever we go in Kampala) to the ultimate Hope that is found only in Jesus.
One last random yet entertaining thought: read their post about grasshopper day.
And be sure to donate!
