Convoy of Hope

You’ve no doubt heard about the powerful tornado that swept through Moore, Oklahoma, today. My heart is heavy with the news of the widespread devastation and tragic loss of lives.

Should you feel the desire to help with the recovery efforts, I urge you to join me in donating to Convoy of Hope.

Convoy of Hope is a nonprofit, faith-based organization that mobilizes and responds to disaster situations, providing much-needed supplies and services. Time after time, Convoy of Hope has been one of the first relief organizations on the ground after tragedy strikes…not just here in the States but all over the world. During emergency-free times, Convoy focuses on feeding some 90,000 children in impoverished areas. In addition to donations from the general public, Convoy partners with many well-known corporations.

In 2011 I had the honor of hearing Convoy of Hope’s founder/president, Hal Donaldson, speak at my church. I was deeply moved and impressed by the mission of this group, their persistence, sincerity, and generosity.

If you intend to make a monetary donation in support of the relief efforts in Oklahoma, please consider giving through Convoy of Hope. Take a moment to explore the group’s website, see what they’re all about, and donate if you feel so inclined: http://convoyofhope.org

You can also text CONVOY to 50555 to make a $10 donation, which will appear on your next cell phone bill. I’ve taken advantage of this giving method several times now; it’s quick and painless.

Who among us cannot spare $10 to help respond to those in need, those who have lost everything?!

You can trust that every dollar donated to this rapid-response team will be used to help the people of Oklahoma.

If we don’t help, who will?
