Please do take a few minutes to read about, pray for, and "Like" these organizations, and share their stories with others.
This Sunday I continue highlighting the finalists for World Magazine's Hope Award for Effective Compassion. The Hope Award recognizes Christian poverty-fighting programs that offer challenging, personal, and spiritual help, and which are not funded by government. (To see the others highlighted so far, go to the "Poverty" category at the right of the page.) After all five finalists have been featured, I will let you know how to vote for the winner.
Today's finalist is from the West Region: Jubilee Leadership Academy. This wonderful Christian organization offers troubled boys a new beginning by teaching them skills such as agriculture, wood working, and welding, backed with professional counseling, all in an isolated rural setting in Washington state.
Please take at least one of the following actions on behalf of Jubilee Leadership Academy:
- Read the feature article in World Magazine
- Pray for them
- Like them on Facebook
- Consider donating to their cause
