Hello everyone! I am working to help build an orphanage in Colombia, South America.
My company Gulf Winds has been working with ICM since 2010 to raise money for churches and orphanages around the world. Why ICM? -Return on Investment 100% of all funds raised go towards the project -Matching Contributions 33% cornerstone matching on every dollar given. -Indigenous Ownership The indigenous people are responsible for the labor and ongoing local outreach. -Proven History From one church in one location to over 4000 churches and orphanages in over 60 countries in only 25 years. We Went, We Saw... In January 2012, Gulf Winds had several members go to Colombia and see for ourselves where the money we raise would be going and the need that was there. The experience was moving...there is a great need for places that children can be taken in, protected, and cared for. Many children that are left to themselves on the streets are taken by drug lords, forced into prostitution or die from neglect. On their trip, our members saw a young girl sits outside of the local orphanage listening to the music. Unfortunately limited space and resources limit the number of children that can be helped and not all children can be taken in. In America, you really cannot understand the level of poverty that exists outside of what we have seen and know. What we consider poverty here would be considered a luxury in the slums of Colombia and other countries like it. Join us, as we raise money that will change the lives of countless children. Help us change the world the eyes of a child.
