The great thing about volunteering at a soup kitchen or a food pantry is the proximity to those you are helping. My Mom Marie Bilodeau, who ran the food pantry at our church, returned home each week with personal stories about the people she helped.


The terrific point about volunteering at a soup kitchen or possibly a food pantry may be the proximity to these you will be assisting. My Mom Marie Bilodeau, who ran the meals pantry at our church, returned household each week with personal stories concerning the men and women she helped. Her experiences often reminded me about a book I read in college referred to as Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne. The book had a profound effect on my view of your notion of philanthropy because it called to activity any system of charity that necessarily insulates the gift-give from the receiver.

That is not to say that we don’t require checks written or canned goods dropped off by folks who in no way meet those whom they support. And I’m not labeling the attending of a dinner benefit aimed at raising cash for the poor “a undesirable thing”. Rather it is to say that we must usually at the very least make an effort to reduce the distance involving us and these we assist. It can be additional comfy to attend a charity banquet than to help bathe the homeless like did Mother Teresa. The vision for which I'm arguing is, consequently, a single that injects a ministry not only of things but of men and women, namely a ministry of presence.

 

So I’d prefer to begin a project called The Gift Card Project, exactly where the gift is not as considerably the monetary donation but the particular person himself, namely YOU. I’d prefer to challenge folks (myself incorporated) to carry with you at all times many $5 or $10 present cards for neighborhood restaurants like McDonald’s or Burger King and maintain your eyes open for those who want assistance. It really is amazing how lots of folks around us are actively soliciting assistance through your weekly walk into Walmart or when leaving the gas station.

 

The challenge of your Gift Card Project may be the string attached for the present card?-?to have a true conversation using the particular person to whom you might be giving the gift card. Ask them how they may be carrying out, what has brought them there. Your ministry of presence is worth greater than the cash itself.

 

My long term aim is usually to function with restaurants like McDonald’s and Burger King to create custom present cards that, when cashed in by someone who is homeless, enable the particular person to return later that day for an additional meal.

 

The Gift Card Project helps the homeless within a sensible way when also reminding them of their own dignity, which can be not depleted for the reason that of their current state. Pivoting out of poverty initial needs an individual to think in that dignity. Which is the genuine aim on the Gift Card Project.

 

Let’s encourage and learn from one another. And I’m curious about your practical experience with this challenge. Please let me know What has been your practical experience even though partaking in “The Gift Card Project”?
