Happy World Donkey Day, Everyone!
I know y'all have lots of activities planned for this holiday, right? Parties, games, celebrations....the usual fare.
Today, I'm celebrating the day by supporting Samaritan's Purse, who provides donkeys and other livestock to impoverished families around the world! What an awesome organization!
I love the story of the women of the Mabamani village in Kenya, who were provided with two donkeys.
“We thank Samaritan’s Purse for the assistance we have received,” said their chairwoman, Mama Mlong. “As women, we used to walk for long distances to fetch water and firewood, taking all our time and energy. Now with the help of the donkeys, we are able to get water quickly, and we have enough to use for cooking and bathing. The general hygiene in our homes has drastically improved.”
The impact of two donkeys on one village goes far beyond the physical. Not only are the women able to provide for their families, they are also touched by the gospel. Lives are transformed.
We thought it would only be fitting for Flash to sponsor a donkey through Samaritan's Purse. Did you know that, for a gift of 350.00, a donkey can be purchased and given to a family? You can even give a small donation that can be combined with other small donations...to add up to a life-changing gift of a donkey.
If you would like to celebrate World Donkey Day with Flash, why not help him support the amazing work of Samaritan's Purse through a livestock gift?
