A Special Thank You to the Kindle Subscribers

 

I just wanted to send out a special “thank you” to the Kindle subscribers of this blog – you are making a big difference in many people’s lives and some of you may not know this: any receipts I receive from Amazon for this blog (after Amazon’s cut) are donated to The Nehemiah Center of Houston, a Houston, TX based charity which is a Christian-based organization that offers academic, emotional, cultural, social, and spiritual enrichment to the children and families in the MacGregor Elementary School Area just outside Houston’s Third Ward.   I have visited this facility, and they are making a tremendous difference in the lives of hundreds of at-risk children.  You can find out more about the Nehemiah Center of Houston by pointing your web browser to www.nehemiah1.org

The blog subscription costs 99 cents per month: of this amount, Amazon sends me 30 cents for each subscriber or just one penny per day.  Since I restarted this blog in June of 2009 (it originally ran for a period of 1997 – 2001, but more on that subject another day), I said any proceeds would be donated to charity – besides, I don’t think it’s very ethical to make a profit off of God.

Just to give you an update, the Kindle subscriptions have generated $4,625 in proceeds which have been donated to The Nehemiah Center – wow!  This has been applied to school snacks, educational material, clothing, and a whole host of things for at-risk children.  In other words, that penny per day for your subscription adds up when you put them all together, and is helping many children receive an education and learn more about God.  You are making a difference!

Thank you!

Michael
