Giving Opportunity

by

As part of our recent evaluation of our mission and core values, we have identified charitable and community service as one of our core values. Our desire is to engage our firm as well as our clients to leave an enduring impact on our world greater than profits.

To that end I would like to introduce you to an opportunity to help with a very special project. An organization we have been blessed to have the opporunity to assist over the years is James 1:27 Ministries, which among other things, has been spearheading the building of a dormatory at an orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. I have personally had the opportunity to go down and assist with construction, and will be going down again in a couple of weeks. It is a pretty special project.

The construction is just about finalized and the kids will soon be able to occupy the dorms, but they have a need to help fund the purchase of bedding. Following is an experpt from an email from Tim Nagle:

"As we are wrapping things up with the building, we do have one area where we could use some help. We would like to provide a new mattress for each of the boys along with a new pillow, new sheets, and a new blanket/comforter. The cost to do this is approximately $140 per child. They currently have 28 boys, plus the cost for the caretakers. We would like to provide 34 "sets" so that they will have extra for new boys as they come in. The total cost for the boys would be approximately $4,760, plus the caretakers mattress and sheets, etc. The grand total is around $5,200.

Please do not feel any pressure at all, but, if you are able, and feel led to participate in funding these items, would you please respond to this e-mail and let me know what you would like to donate. You could then send a check to "James 1:27 Ministries" at 3499 Queens Ct., Costa Mesa, Ca. 92626. Please enclose a note with your check indicating that this is for the Tecate bed project. "James 1:27 Ministries" is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization that we have set up for our ministry to local convalescent/assisted living homes and Mexico orphanages. Your donation would be tax deductible.

Our goal is to have the funds in hand by February 13th in order to get things ordered, paid for, and delivered before the celebration on the 28th.

If we should have more than the $5,200 donated, the extra gifts will be used for any other unforseen costs to complete the building and to pay for day-to-day expenses of the orphanage."

Thank you for your consideration of this worthy opportunity.
