This coming Sunday (May 1), we are going to join in a fast with thousands of people in Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia who will be forgoing food for a day and donating their savings to the relief effort in Ecuador, as they just experienced a catastrophic earthquake on the coast. It will be a day of united compassion and prayer.
If you'd like to join in with us, please do! We'll be joined with you in spirit, and with thousands of people coming together to support those in need.
Thanks for your love,
P.S. My designer friends told me about these posters being sold for $20 by an ad agency called Wieden+Kennedy. They are raising money for Ecuador. An Ecuadorian from their firm designed the posters.
If you're looking for other ways to support the recovery effort:
- The U.S. Embassy in Ecuador provided this list of organizations.
- Ecuador Cares, the orphanage non-profit here that we know personally, has been raising money to directly help individual families and children affected by the earthquake. We love and trust this organization explicitly. They have direct contacts and family members in the hardest hit areas and are providing baby formula, diapers, water, milk, canned tuna and beans, baby bottles, toilet paper, feminine products, hygiene supplies, flashlights, batteries, cooking utensils, blankets, and tarps. If you'd like to join in, you can make a donation HERE and write in that it's for the Earthquake Relief Fund. We donated a portion of the proceeds from our Body+Soul Camp that took place in Ecuador last week.
