Last night, I shared with my kindergartener, who's very concerned about Haiti, a story about an area church trying to put in a water-filtration system in Haiti that would serve 5,000 or so people. The cost? A mere $5,000. What a simple price tag on life: $1per person to prevent cholera.
I asked her what we could do to help.
Her solution? She is giving up her Thursdays buying lunch at school habit, and we'll share that savings with the church. (Proactively.) I trust she'll stick it out.
