Ark’, the biblical story of Noah comes to mind, but that’s just a minute part of this focus. We may not be building a physical ark (only Mr. Noah has had the grace to do that) but we are figuratively building an ARK (Acts of Random Kindness), with tales of kindness shown from different people. It’s these stories that build the ARK.
To help spread the magic of Christmas and the love of Christ, ConnectCharity (an arm of TWF) decided to make the day memorable for 100 families by giving each deserving family one live chicken to celebrate with. We eventually had to raise the target to 250 families as the response from people was amazing!
Some kind individuals all the way from the United States got their names on the ARK. The sweetest part is that nobody participating know the receiving families, they just tapped into the vision and gave.
This project is in obedience to Matt 25: 35-40. Our Focus was to give to the needy in our community- Amuwo, hence the following places benefited: the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Nigeria (SCIAN); Bethroey, a home for the mentally challenged; Lake View Phase 1; and the community right before Festac Link Bridge.
