Author Jon Acuff joined Samaritan’s Purse in Vietnam to visit two kindergartens that were funded by the readers of his blog, Stuff Christians Like. This is the story of how an idea on a blog became a reality in a village, and what can happen when the Body of Christ listens and responds when God speaks.
Forgotten by much of the world, millions of boys and girls struggle to survive under the most desperate of circumstances. Many must eke out a living on their own, begging on the streets, scavenging through trash, or working in sweatshops. Samaritan’s Purse gives these children a fresh start on a better life, while offering a new beginning in Christ.
Samaritan’s Purse is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity. All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
