52First Sponsorship Update

Anyone who’s been on a faith adventure to Haiti with Mariners Church has met 52 of the cutest Haitian kids ever. And if you haven’t met them yourself, you’ve probably heard about them from someone else who has. They are at the heart and soul of our Haiti Ministry, and we love them dearly.

BUT DO YOU KNOW that these 52 children depend 100% on our generosity for their livelihood? As we work to implement sustainability projects which will allow the Glory Glory Center to become self-sustaining, we need your help. It takes $7,500 per month to properly care for the 52 children & their caregivers at the Glory Glory Center. Currently, a handful of donors are giving 30% of that amount on a regular basis, but we need more people to participate if we’re going to cover the full amount.

Our hope, prayer, and goal is for the Glory Glory Center to be financially sustainable in the next 5 years. Until then, we rely on generous donors to compensate the cost of running the center, which includes providing food, shelter, education, emotional and physical safety for the 52 kids, and loving housemoms to care for the day to day needs of the children.

With that in mind, we ask you to consider donating to 52First. If 300 people commit to giving $25/month for the next 5 years, not only will the cost of raising these children be covered, but they will be given hope for a future they never dreamt possible. We know these children are the future of Haiti, let’s give them the opportunity to dream about their futures and how they can impact the place they call home.
