Generosity

“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink.”
– Matthew 25:35

Here at Original we believe that generous hands are never empty, so each Original Conference we join hands to do more for some incredible causes than we could each do on our own.

Original Gives

Each Original Conference we ask ladies to bring something with them to give away! This year we are collecting items for an amazing local organization: Safe Families.

Safe Family is passionate about engaging the local church to build a support network around vulnerable children and families in need. While hosting arrangements are an integral part of their movement, they also seek to build extended family-like supports around the families in need that will last well beyond the placement.

What You Can Bring

  • Our goal is to stock some of their top items with an abundance!
  • Pull ups – all sizes
  • Diapers – all sizes but 2 and up are most used
  • Undergarments – underwear, undershirts/tank, socks all children’s sizes
  • Gift Cards – Target, Walmart, Meijer

We are asking every lady to bring something. We want to bless them beyond what they could imagine!

Compassion International

Compassion International concentrates its efforts on releasing children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. They seek to transform the lives of the children they minister to so they are completely and finally released from poverty. Through their Child Sponsorship Program, a child is given the opportunity to develop and succeed. Compassion provides these children with the following services: Critical medical resources and medical checkups, clean water, nutritious food, supplemental vitamins, health and hygiene training, educational assistance, emotional support, and spiritual guidance, and opportunities to hear the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

In order to help make a difference, the ladies of Original have sponsored over 1,000 children in Burkina Faso, Africa! Along with the sponsorships, we also have been able to provide needed classrooms for students in the village.
