Day 2613: Life’s Meaning and My Christmas Wish #NishasXmasWish

Life’s meaning is not in the acquisition of possessions but rather in the distribution of one’s blessings – that’s what I know.

 

It’s 12 : 59 PM on day 2613 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read 1 John 2:23 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 488 only $8 012 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far).

 

Yesterday with less than two months to go till Christmas I decided that in lieu of Christmas gifts I would ask everyone to help me fix Clubfoot – so far I’ve raised enough money to help MiracleFeet provide about 17 kids with Clubfoot treatment just need 33 more generous people to donate $250 each in the next 46 days to surpass my goal by Christmas. If you can please donate ($250 would be great but even if you can only give less than that I would  still appreciate it from the bottom of my heart really)  https://www.crowdrise.com/50newfeet .
