Coffee for Malawi

Joe and Leila opened up shop yesterday for one more push before their advent conspiracy money is due.  They had an amazing outpouring of donations from people driving by and long-distance PayPal donations.

They braved the cold by snacking on chocolate donuts and waving frantically at each car that came through the neighborhood.

Each customer got the carefully worded explanation from Joe, “We are raising money for kids in Malawi, Africa.  So they have food and clean water.”

So far the kids have raised $330.03.  Each $50 feeds one child for a year and provides a lifetime of clean water for their family.

If you’d like to get in on the action, they will be accepting PayPal donations until 4:30 tomorrow when they turn in their cups at church.  The PayPal email address is jeffbaj<at>

A huge thank you to everyone who has put money in their cups.  You have not only given food and water to kids in Malawi, but hope and inspiration to our kids.

I’m proud of these rascals.
