Because 1+1=2

I know when you saw the title, you probably thought you were going to read a post by someone who is almost, if not totally, inept at math.

And you were right. But I love me some Mercy Street Ministries, West Dallas, inner-city kids, and the foxy Executive Director who happens to be the father of my children.

Now I may not be very good at math but I can do some simple addition and I know that 2 is more than 1. On May 20th, The Communities Foundation of Texas and The Dallas Foundation are launching what's called Donor Bridge. On that day, a dollar-for-dollar match will be given for every gift to Mercy Street made through www.donorbridgetx.org. Online donations are made with a credit card and any gift from $25 to $2,5000 is eligible for matching funds while they last.

To learn more and donate, visit www.donorbridgetx.org

This is a rare opportunity to make your giving go even further and impact the lives of inner-city kids who desperately need to know the relentless love and hope of Christ.

For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; I was naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'

Matthew 25:35-40
