Do You Have Plumber's Insurance????

The Youth at our Church, Port Norfolk Baptist, are participating in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine to raise money for hungry children around the world. The end of the month they will be sleeping outside in front of the church in cardboard boxes during the actual 30 hour famine period. They had a Sweetheart Luncheon last week serving fried chicken and fixins to raise money, but I think one of the funniest and most original fundraisers I've ever seen is the Plumber's Insurance Plan. If you do not buy insurance, this lovely tub can be placed in your front yard until you come up with $10.00 to have it removed. You can also pay$5.00 to have it placed in a yard of an uninsured person. The lovely tub was randomly placed (by the youth, they LOVE us!!) in our yard and we then paid money to have it placed in someone else's yard (after paying the $10.00 removal fee) and it now is in our daughter's yard (we didn't pay for this placement ... she has two teenage boys ... again randomly placed by our youth, I think ... youth loving youth !). We have gotten such a kick out of this inventive way to raise money ... our youth minister is GREAT .. always coming up with new and unique ways to get our teens excited about Christ and the love He wants us to share with all ... and this way to raise money for those less fortunate is certainly a lesson our youth will not soon forget, nor many of us older folks ... keep showing that love guys!
