Husband and I have been through a lot lately, and our finances are struggling to stay caught up with the chaos. Above all of this, we are grasping desperately to a strong desire to recognize how much God has given us and to remember that we are called to give back, not from what is left over, but straight off of the top. The way that we have chosen to do this is to give 5% of our take home pay to our parish and 5% to other charities. Those charities vary each pay period, and after he gets up from the nap he is taking, I'm going to talk to him about this being our next charity. There is just no reason, with all that is good and wonderful and advanced in our world that a child could die from not having access to clean water. Talk about the simplest of necessities. So, wherever you stand on tithing, whatever your financial resources, please consider following the link below and considering a gift to children who have the simplest of needs... thank you.
