HOW TO SPEND $8 MILLION (EPISCOPAL) DOLLARS

HOW TO SPEND $8 MILLION (EPISCOPAL) DOLLARS

It costs just $10 to feed a boy in Kenya's refugee camps for 3 weeks -- this is less than the cost of lipstick in Manhattan.

With $8 million, you could feed 800,000 Kenyan children for three weeks.

It costs $6,000 to build a house in Haiti. For $8 million you could build 1,334 homes on that beleaguered, impoverished island.

According to Water Wheels for Africa (WWFA), the average cost to dig a water well is $8,000. However, this figure includes more than drilling a hole and installing a pump. Each well serves 2,000 people. That means it costs $4.00 to give a person clean water and help them live long and live better. Is that expensive? Not by any means. For every latte you order at Starbucks, WWFA could use that money to supply a person with clean water for 20 years.

So, for $8 million, you could build and operate 1,000 water wells to bring life saving water to several African nations.

World Vision says its Child sponsorship program costs $39 per month and it has a huge multiplier effect. "We stretch your dollar as far as possible to help lift both your child and their entire community out of poverty. In fact, for every child sponsored, 4 other children in the community are helped!"

For $8 million, you could feed and clothe 205,128 children, helping four other children in the community.

OR you could spend $8 million brokering rites for sodomite marriage into the Episcopal Church and messing with the Book of Common Prayer (over three triennium) to change it so non-heterosexual marriages are forever enshrined in the BCP in order to cater to the behavior of a handful of homosexuals and lesbians who may or may not choose to get married. And Jesus will weep. https://tinyurl.com/yc2l8eqw
