Where This Meets That
If you’re a new visitor to TS2012!, then welcome! You might not “get it”, yet, so let me break it down for you. 🙂
I have set a goal to lose 100 lbs by this Christmas. I want to convert the fat I lose into funding for the poor, for those who know no excess. To do that, I request donations from anyone looking to give.
The organization your donations will go to is called Missionaries of the Poor, abbreviated MOP. The MOP is headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica but spans some of the poorest communities across the globe.
So far, since January 4, I have lost 54 lbs, and supporters have pledged over $3,000 toward a Christmas donation to MOP.
What has MOP Done Lately?
Here are ten things the MOP has achieved over the past 18 months:
Here is a recent interview with MOP founder Fr. Richard Ho Lung and several helpers that was broadcast on EWTN. The interview starts at 9:00 mark and lasts about 45 minutes It is a good, informative interview, though, so if you’re interested in watching it, you’ll need to block out some time.
