Every year just before Mothers Day, Food Lifeline distributes sacks in partnership with the local post office. You may have gotten one last week too. Until now I have looked at that sack and thought maybe another time.
Well, let me tell you what makes couponing really fun:
Giving Good Brand Name Things Away!
We have been couponing for about four months now and to my delight we had enough to toss some goodies in that blue sack. That makes couponing so awesome. It enables us to have what we need and give to others. Did you know that God say’s the more we give the more He will give to us?
2 Corinthians 9:6-8 say’s, “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all-sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
This is so exciting! 🙂
If you are local then here are a few places you can give:
The Food Lifeline
The Des Moines Food Bank
Or you can always go global!
World Vision Donation Page
Just a heads up if your new to this, they need non-perishable food and personal care items. Think canned vegetables, soups, cereals, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner. And of course, monetary donations are super too! If you look around and think, “I wonder if I can donate this?” Give the folks at the local food bank a call and ask if they need it. Chances are they do.
Dear Jesus, I am so thankful. You have blessed us. Thank you that I am now able to bless others out of the gifts and treasure you have given us. You are faithful and mighty. Thank you for moving my heart. Amen.
