1/15/09 COME UNITY spends time with the students at Penn Christian Academy.  Ms. Joanne Russell's class will be saving their coins for us in the next few weeks.  Thanks PCA!

"The students of PCA have been raising funds for COME UNITY since 1/15.  Teacher Joanne Russell writes, "One girl emptied out her piggy bank, did some extra chores around the house, and asked her neighbors for some money for Come Unity.  She brought in $60!  This other little girl made up her own Come Unity fliers and passed them out at her church.  She is still collecting money for Come Unity by doing that!   One boy in my class emptied out his wallet and donated $138!  I told him that was amazing! I asked him why he wanted to do this and he said that he watched the news and saw how Haiti was in trouble and how we are raising money for people to have clean water.  He goes on and says that because of these things he told himself that if he ever sees a homeless person he will always empty out his wallet and give them all that he has!    Everyday students are donating money, whether it's a penny or more!  They are having fun and are excited to be a part of this ministry!"


12/5/09  - COME UNITY joins forces with Spirit In Motion Ballet Theatre to present a child focused Christmas event celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.  "Frosty's Caring and Sharing Christmas" features magical dancing, festive singing, and children can enjoy milk and cookies after the short performance, and make a holiday craft for a child in Ilbissil, Kenya.  Proceeds from this event will be spent on piping and pumping water from the new water well in Ilbissil to the Primary and Secondary Schools.
