A while back I got connected with Amara's Acts of Kindness. We were blessed to be able to be apart of their "Shades HOPE" event. Amara's Acts of Kindness sent down about 100 pairs of sunglasses to be shared with the children of Grace Village and children at church!
This is what "Shades of HOPE" is all about:
"Amara's Acts of Kindness" hosted their 1st Annual "Shades of HOPE" event….they collected close to 1,000 pairs of sunglasses that went all over the world, to people young and old who are in need of some HOPE!!!
Check out a post from their Facebook page:
We were overwhelmed with the number of people who came to honor Amara's life and keep her LIGHT for JESUS SHINING BRIGHT!! I knew she was watching, along with Jesus...talking about how this was all a part of His plan!! Thanks to all who made it out to take the pledge to do at least one act of kindness a day, for the following year!! You really do make a difference!! Lives are being touched, seeds are being planted, and changes are taking place....I have heard many stories to testify to this, and it is a TRUE gift from the Lord...it is humbling to sit back and see His hand in all of this!! God bless you all for what you have done and are continuing to do each and every day!! Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS and SHINE ON!!!
The kids here in Titanyen were blessed to be able to be apart of this. We had our staff talk about HOPE and what it means to have HOPE in Jesus…no matter what life brings at you. They talked about how God's plan for their future is so bright that they need 'shades'! Their sunglasses that they received with Amara's photo on them is a constant reminder that their LORD and SAVIOR has a BRIGHT future planned for them!!
The kids got to each pick out their favorite ones!!
