5 For 50 - Savings the Orphans

There are 5 things that every one of us can do to help the 50 million people in our world suffering from HIV/AIDS. Here's how it works:
Give 5 minutes a day to pray for those suffering from HIV/AIDS.
Give 5 hours a week to fast for those suffering from HIV/AIDS.
Give 5 dollars a month to the Five for 50 Fund and support worthy causes.
Give 5 days a year to travel overseas and help alleviate poverty and suffering.
Give 5 people an opportunity to join you on your journey. More details are given in the book. But this is a way everyone can participate and be part of the solution to a world-crisis. All proceeds will go directly to HIV/AIDS projects around the world. The children are worth it!
It is amazing how so little can do so much. We have checked out this organization and they are ligitimate, the statement is below. To read Tom Davis' blog click the link. I challenge you to read his new book "Red Letter - Living a Faith That Bleeds." His blog has an intro video to his new book. Our family signed up for the challenge, how about you?

Your donations go to Children's HopeChest, the nonprofit organization that operates the Five for 50 campaign. Five for 50 selects the most urgent and strategic programs to invest in and will report back to donors on the combined impact of the campaign. Some of those outreaches could include: feeding programs, educational initiatives, health care, community development, and spiritual discipleship. Children's HopeChest is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability and is a four-star rated charity by Charity Navigator.
