thank you from FaithWorks Project

Just wanted to say thank you to all who came out to support FaithWorks Project at our Chick-Fil-A night. It was great to hang out with everyone and even better that we were there for a great cause.

We don't have the totals in yet but it looks like between the food and the raffle we brought in about $2000. We also received an independent donation of $1000 that night. So all together, you helped us raise about $3000 last Wednesday.

So what happens next?

In the next week or so, Scott and myself along with the Board of Directors will be investigating people in impoverished countries who have applied for a microloan through Kiva. When we find who we are looking for, we will give this money out in the form of multiple small microloans. We will let you know who these new entrepreneurs are when we do it.

Throughout the next year, they will be paying back these loans. When that $3000 comes back to us, we will turn around and invest that same money you helped us raise into Baltimore City. In the meantime, we are looking for innovative community development initiatives in Baltimore which have a proven track record of successfully fighting poverty here locally. Right now, we are excited about some of the things happening in Sandtown. We would like to reinvest the money into these kinds of programs and ministries .

So thank you again! Thank you for taking the time to help change the lives of people in Africa and our city of Baltimore.

If you would like to learn more about FaithWorks Project or would like to opportunity to donate on a more regular basis, go here.
