Helping in the Harvest - Miss Elaini
Interview with Miss Elaini
|This is the "one dress"!|
I am wearing one dress for 100 days to raise $50,000 for orphans in India. I am blogging the picture of each different outfit daily. :)
• Why did you decide to wear one dress for a hundred days?
I saw another woman Sheena from the Uniform Project (she wore the same dress for a year!) and I decided that she had a brilliant idea.
• Who are you helping?
I am helping orphans in India through Warm Blankets Orphan Care.
How to Help
• How can we help and get involved?
Please spread the word. I have no illusions that I can raise $50,000 on my own. Or if you are really ambitions do a small fundraiser (bake sale, music night, etc.) in your community and then donate the money to the project.
• How can JOY readers pray for you and the people you are impacting?
Wow, thank you. Please pray for strength for me. Due to my health issues and a lot of responsibility I need grace. Pray that others would hear about this and give to hurting orphans. Pray for the orphans as they adjust to having a home and food. They have a lot of scars, pain, and insecurity. They worry if they will have food for the next day and often have to be given a loaf of bread to convince them to go to sleep.

IN YOUR COMMUNITY
• What is something that JOY Blog readers can do right in their communities to help?
Become informed about orphans and then tell others. We have been given so much and it is a joy to give back.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:35-36 & 40 (NIV)
