Samaritan's Purse

The Samaritan's Purse is a Christian Organization that helps others around the world. Their name comes from the parable that Jesus Christ told in Luke 10:25-37; "The Good Samaritan." For those who are unfamiliar with this parable, it is a story of a Jew left beaten, robbed, and left for dead who is found by the "Good Samaritan" who helps the Jew by giving him food, clothes and shelter. Basically, Jesus Christ says that we should all help those in need; which is exactly what the Samaritans Purse does.

This is another organization I have some experience with (you can read about the other organization here). Every Christmas our church donates shoe boxes with small goodies in it to the Samaritans Purse to passed out to needy children who won't be receiving gifts that year.

You can check out the Samaritan's Purse online, view their history, their different missions, what they are about and what they are doing to improve the world before you donate to the Japan relief fund. On their website you can also donate to other funds as well. Just take a look.

 Also, don't forget about my giveaway for my set of monogrammed cards which Ends April 15th, midnight

P.S. In an attempt to gain more readers I've decided to post on the weekend when able. So talk to you tomorrow!
