Hardship and disaster fill the headlines. It's easy to feel helpless in the face of such enormous need. But consider this - even a small donation can be life-changing for someone in a less prosperous place. The price of a coffee can feed a whole family for a day in many countries. Pick your cause - feeding the hungry, healing the planet, rushing aid - and make your donation count. A few coins in your pocket can save lives and light up the darkness.

And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny.

For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” (Mark 12:41-44)
