Paying It Forward: Sponsoring Izabella

CommunityPaying It Forward:  Sponsoring Izabella

As we've gotten older, the question "What do you want for Christmas" has gotten harder and harder to answer.  God has blessed us both personally and in our business, we have no true needs to request when our family asks us.  More and more we find ourselves saying "Make a donation to charity in our names".  At the end of 2008 that request led to our ongoing sponsorship of a young girl in Brazil named Izabella via World Vision.

If you haven't heard of World Vision, here's a World Vision summary from Charity Navigator :

  • "Mission:  World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ, World Vision serves alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God's unconditional love for all people. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender."

Charity Navigator rates World Vision as a Four Star Charity, with 88.3% of funds going directly to charitable work.  This organization raises well over a BILLION dollars a year to spend on clean water, food, health care, education and spiritual nurture and we're happy to support them with a monthly donation for the last few years and continuing to do so in the future.  And even better, thanks to Bill's work for Johnson & Johnson, they match $2 for every $1 we donate!

If you also decide to sponsor a child, just go to the World Vision website and you can choose where in the world you want to help, and select which child you'd like to help.


Just something to consider, but YOU can make a huge difference!

A quote from our friend in North Carolina:
"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition.  I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can.  No more, no less."  Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®
