Have you ever been passionate about something or someone? Have you had that passion consume your thoughts to the point that you could not think of anything else? Did you act on that passion and do something about it?
Working with children and youth has always been a passion of mine. Whether I was in college, working more than one job, or feeling lucky that I managed to get 3 hours of sleep inbetween studying and class, I somehow found myself working with children or youth one way or another. I squeezed them into that crazy schedule I called the "norm".
An opportunity to work with children in Northern Ireland has been brought to me and others, and we jumped on it. To take our passion for youth and go beyond our borders excites us to no end! These children need to be shown love. They may not be starving physically, but they are starving spiritually.
Here's the best part: We need you! Helping others is not a one man (or woman) show. Working together is the only way to do this. There are a few different ways you can help with this trip.
Step one: PRAY! Ireland is a bit far...safe travel, good trip, lots of children to be with, these are all things that could use an extra boost through prayer.
Step two: Raising funds. These shirts are a way of expressing why we are going to Northern Ireland. The best part is all the proceeds go towards sending us there!
