How many families can we feed?

9 Dec

I hope you’re enjoying the journey, because we’re already feeding families.

Thanks to all of you who have helped by purchasing books this month. Every book sold is generating $1 so Rice & Beans Foundation can buy rice and beans for needy families in Nicaragua.

And your response has me wondering (in a good way) … how many families can we feed?

Lots – if we help our friends take the journey too.

In fact, that’s the key.

See, I can’t imagine many people buying more than a couple of books this month, for themselves or as gifts. That’s great, but it could be just a start.

You have friends. And if you’re enjoying the journey, you’ll want to take your friends along. I’d like to think that Karia’s world is so compelling that you’ll want to share it with your friends.

Think of it this way:

Want to feed a family for a week? You can, if you and six of your friends each buy a book.

And maybe if enough of us do this, we can feed 100 families for a week.

Want to feed a family for a month? You can, if you and nine of your friends each buy a set of the books.

And maybe if enough of us do this, we could feed 100 families for a month.

There’s a limit to how much each one of us can do. But, if we take the journey together, there are no limits. With a little work, and a little encouragement to your friends, together we can make a huge difference in the lives of needy people in Nicaragua.

So share the journey, and feed lots of families!
