We decided to focus our efforts for the 50 days after Easter, committing to change our daily routines to save $1 a day. After 50 days we collected our savings and donated over $130,000 to support building 13 deep borehole wells in southern Uganda with Living Water International.
We again took on the challenge to simplify, learn, and give for the 50 days post-Easter. We also sent a small team to Uganda for an update on the wells being built, and to learn more from Living Water. We were in awe of the more than $200,000 collected to build 20 more deep borehole wells in southern Uganda.
In our third year, another small group went to East Africa, and we began to support local churches in that region with World Relief Rwanda. We raised over $260,000 to support our two global partnerships.
2012 and beyond ...
Spilling Hope became Spilling Hope 365, challenging us to simplify, learn, and give all year long. We have also added Roblealto Child Care Association in Costa Rica as our newest global partner. We are excited to see what God will do next!
