If you have read my blog for a while, you know that I one of my favorite blogs is Stuff Christians Like. About a year ago, Jon Acuff the author of Stuff Christians Like (SCL) decided through conversation with his 4 year old daughter to build a kindergarten in Viet Nam through raising money on SCL. The readers banded together and raised enough money for not one, but two kindergartens to be built.
Jon got a crazy idea this year to try to save 1,000 lives through SCL. In Nakaseke District, of Uganda, malaria runs rampant. People die of malaria. A $10 malaria net saves lives. Jon is asking his readers to try to save 1,000 lives by donating money to purchase malaria nets. 100% of the money goes to purchasing nets, nothing is going to payroll, transportation or other overhead costs. Now, I am asking for my readers to support this. Inside of 2 1/2 hours, over $10,000 have already been raised, and the challenge goes on for 22 1/2 more hours.
Can you save a life? Go to here, choose SCL 10k from the drop down list and donate.
