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 .

Day 2483: The Ridiculous and Not-So-Ridiculous Things I Pray For

My life is really a tale of two-halves – that’s what I keep being reminded of.

 

It’s 12 : 27 PM on day 2483 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Psalm 119:45,  have breakfast and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $1 400 only $11 100 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

This morning I was reminded that my life is really a tale of two-halves one minute I’m praying that God helps me find people who will be willing to help me heal kids with clubfoot and the next minute I’m praying (literally praying) to have a pain-free bowel movement (all the doctors in my life have tried to get me on laxatives but I don’t want to be dependent on it forevermore)  it almost seems unfair that I’m the one trying so hard to make a difference some days I just want to punch a hole in the wall and cry a thousand tears but I choose to get up every day and try because i know that life is not a chore it’s a gift.

Day 2468: 50 New Feet – a fundraising campaign for MiracleFeet #50NewFeet

“Help one another; there’s no time like the present and no present like the time.”— James Durst

 

It’s 12 : 47 PM on day 2468 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, read Acts 3: 6  and donate  to and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – my parents allowed me to donate $50 on their  behalf and B and Gaynor donated $50 (thanks guys) my goal is to raise $12 500 in a year to provide treatment for 50 kids with clubfoot

This morning I started 50 New Feet– a fundraising campaign benefiting MiracleFeet, an international non-profit organization increasing access to free treatment for clubfoot in developing countries using the Ponseti Method, a non-surgical treatment that involves a series of plaster casts that are changed weekly followed by the wearing of a feet brace for a few years to prevent relapse – because I believe that all children deserve the opportunity to live to their fullest potential without the hindrance of clubfoot. My goal is to raise $12 500 in 12 months (which is enough money to pay for 50 clubfoot treatments).For more information about 50 New Feet or to make a donation please visit www.crowdrise.com/50newfeet  and use #50NewFeet  when tweeting about this campaign.

———————————————————————————————————————————

$250  Donation to MiracleFeet = A new life for a child born with clubfoot. Could we get 50 people to donate 50 clubfoot treatments. Alternatively, 250 of could donate $50 each.

Did you know:  A 100 million dollar investment in clubfoot treatment will equal 2.5 BILLION dollars in additional earnings per year.

Help transform lives by treating clubfoot.

This campaign will end on June 17, 2018
