Double down, everything on red... everyone wins.

Hello everyone, if you haven't donated anything yet to the East Africa Famine
relief, tomorrow (Friday Sept. 16th) is the last day that the Canadian
Government will match what you give. We all have something to spare. It might
mean giving up Tim Horton's next week or one less trip to the mall, or you eat
bologna instead of steak this week, or you suffer through another year watching
your old 32" TV and forgoing spending $700 on a new flat screen. It doesn't
matter what your political views are, your views of Aid organizations or even
you're religious convictions, dying kids in Africa need food. So give as much
as you can and then add $20. Donations to any registered charity that is
accepting toward the crisis will be matched so pick one that fits with you're
philosophy, whoever you give it to some kid gets to eat, it may mean they get to
live long enough to hear about Jesus. If you need some more convincing, Luke
1 Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box,2
and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins.t3 And he said, "Truly, I
tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them.4 For they all
contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she
had to live on."

We are all blessed, bless someone else.
