Give up and give to another!

For the 40 days of Lent, make just one sacrifice and donate the money you saved to #MakeLentCount. Together, we can give to children and families who really need our help!


Here are some small sacrifices you can make that will really #MAKELENTCOUNT, and help you feel the real joy of Easter:

  • Give up a “night out.”
  • Give up one meal each week.
  • Give up fast food for the remainder of Lent.
  • Give up your favorite beverage for a week.

Your sacrifice has a great impact in the Americas. When you give up and give instead, you help alleviate suffering in the lives of real people. Here is who you will help and what your sacrifice will go towards:

  • By giving up a “night out” YOU help families in Puerto Rico who are still without electricity, food, water and jobs. You help those families to gain access to clean drinking water, hot meals, and fishing materials to regain their livelihood. You can also reduce the threat of sickness and disease.
  • By giving up one meal each week YOU help malnourished, displaced, struggling farmers in Colombia to learn new, sustainable skills. You can help them to become more resilient to disasters, earn an income, sustain their livelihoods, and feed their children.
  • By giving up fast food for the remainder of Lent YOU help Haitians reforest the mangrove areas in Cite Soleil. You will help to protect children and families from future disasters.
  • By giving up your favorite beverage for a week YOU  help the vulnerable get their lives back on track after last year’s devastating disasters –Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. You will help the poorest of the poor in the U.S. – the elderly, sick, poor, and those who were already struggling – to have more opportunities for better lives.

It’s really quite simple and your faithful actions will touch many lives! Give up, give to another, and #MAKELENTCOUNT!
