This Kind of Poverty: A Whole Different World from Our Own

“The truly poor won’t be at our church services. They won’t be at our committee meetings. They won’t be at the supermarket where we shop. And they aren’t here today. We have to reach out and find them where they are.”
“We found a whole different world from our own. We found people living without bathrooms or running water – with holes in their roofs and floors – people so poor they had no beds, no stoves, no shoes. Until that day, I had never imagined this kind of poverty – right next door to our own snug and comfortable lives.”

The Tuesday After Thanksgiving

shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity.”
