Fundraising Friday!

It is no secret that raising just one child is expensive. At Casa de Fe, we care for an average of 70 children. It costs approximately $35,000 to provide food, shelter, around-the-clock care, education and necessary medical treatments each month.

When you "do the math", that's only $500 per month, per child.

Casa de Fe receives NO government funds. Therefore, we rely on generous donors to help us make ends meet. Each Friday, we will highlight a different fundraising idea. Perhaps something we feature here will inspire you to raise funds for the children of Casa de Fe from wherever you are.

We'll begin with the simplest idea for fundraising that we've ever done... Spare Change!

Not only could you make a habit of saving your own spare change, but you could challenge your entire family. Think about others that would like to get involved, and challenge them to do so.

Your Sunday school class
Your small group or Bible study group
Your neighborhood
Your siblings or other extended family members
Your friends
Your co-workers

Set a deadline. Make it a competition. Have a prize for the person or family that raises the most money. Celebrate together when you're done!

And after you celebrate, write a check for the total amount raised (put the change in  your bank account) and send it to CornerStone International, PO Box 192, Wilmore, KY 40390. Be sure to write "Casa de Fe" in the memo.
