You may have thrown $40 away in your garbage can this morning. WAIT, before you rush to the kitchen, you need to know what to look for and who needs it! That $40 could mean BIG things for someone you never met. That $40 may help a child stay with their family. To you, it will look like garbage–an empty cereal or cracker box. To them, it will be so much more!
Do you wonder how an empty box can be worth $40? In Haiti, the Apparent Project, a Christian ministry helps people change those boxes into beautiful jewelry. The jewelry is then sold and the artisan gets the money! In Haiti families are so poor, sometimes children have to go to orphanages because their parents can not afford to feed them. The Apparent Project knows that is not what God wants, so they find creative ways to make jobs so people make money.
Making beautiful things out of trash is such a picture of God at work! He loves it when we join in that work.
“When anyone is in Christ, it is a whole new world. The old things are gone; suddenly, everything is new! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Will you help by sending boxes?
