A Jar of Change

Jars_of_change_logo_250

Last year when I was still working in Devon, we decided to collect our small change during Lent. We then had a speaker come to our service to tell us about Water Aid. This is a charity that works to bring fresh water to village communities in some of the poorest parts of the world.

We take it for granted that we can turn on the tap and fresh, clean, drinking quality water comes out. For many people in the world the water is diseased and dirty, children and women can spend 3 or 4 hours a day carrying water for the family home. Imagine if 4 hours every day you had to carry water home to use. What would that mean for your life?

Thursday’s Lent Challenge was to collect a jar of change and then after Easter to give it to a charity of your choice.

  1. Hayes Deaf Church raised money for the Water Aid at Harvest time last year. Why not again during Lent? We need to think of people and children in poor countries than ourselves.
