For the first time, Mercy Street is in need of formal fundraising. Giving across the nation is down 35% and we have not been immune to this statistic. What's not down, though, is the number of children, and their families, who want to be a part of this ministry. Kids wait outside for the doors to open at every event and, on a daily basis, children are asking one of the mentor coordinators when they can get a mentor.
On a side note, if this is your first visit to my blog, take heart, I don't ask for help all the time. I swear. Unless it comes to laundry advice. Or hair advice. Or good ideas for meals that look and taste like I spent a lot of time but I actually just defrosted and microwaved them. To those - I'm guilty as charged.
