In just a few days, we will shower our significant others with flowers, candy, gifts and food and wine as part of our annual observance of Valentine’s Day. In the process, we are expected to spend close to $20 billion (with a ‘B’). That’s a lot of LOVE! But what if we took just 1% of that to “love our neighbors as ourselves” this year? We could free up $200 million and give hundreds of people the gift of home.
How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? Consider spending just a little less and giving the money you save toward our Lenten Compact project to ‘make a home’ for a refugee family.
