DCLA Students Make Big Impact

PrintOne of the ways we asked students to make a difference at this summer’s DCLA was with their money. For every purchase students made at the DCLA on site store we made a donation towards one of three ministries. If they donated to Compassion International’s Bite Back program, their funds went to buy mosquito nets. If they chose Blood: Water Mission, their donation went towards clean drinking water in Africa. And if they chose Invisible Children, their money went to end child slavery in Uganda. When it was all over we were able to donate a total $4878 to those ministries. This just goes to show you that small decisions we make in our every day life, when working together, can add up to a big impact. Way to go DCLA students!
