Nothing but Nets IIIFeb 28th, 2011 | By tami.snowden | | Print This Post |
A few months ago I wrote about a young boy named Jacob, age 11. Jacob, along with his family attended the Red Card class. Jacob was very moved by the number of children dying every day because of hunger or a very preventable disease like malaria. Jacob dedicated his 2010 soccer season to raise money for malaria nets, and raised over $1100. The money raised was given to His Nets. The Denver Post featured Jacob’s story.
The Denver Nuggets decided to continue Jacob’s Nothing but Nets project; instead of soccer nets, it was basketball nets. On January 19, the Denver Nuggets donated $6 from each ticket sold in the upper level section of the Pepsi Center toward His Nets. KUSA- 9News in Denver told Jacob’s story. Take a moment and watch this story.
Jacob’s mother, Sheri, said, “It doesn’t have to be big, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others.” How is God calling you to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children?
