Lemonade and Bracelets: Help for Hurricane Alex Relief

July 19, 2010

Abby, and her best friend, Annika love making friendship bracelets.  Yesterday, they decided to use their hobby to help a greater cause.  They hosted a bracelet and lemonade stand in front of their neighborhood pool to benefit Back2Back hurricane relief efforts in Monterrey, Mexico.  Excited about the opportunity to help victims of Hurricane Alex, Abby’s younger sisters, Grace & Rachel, jumped in, helping at the lemonade stand, and even buying some bracelets for themselves.  Later, Grace, Rachel, and Abby’s brother, Luke, also donated money they had already set-aside to tithe.  In the end, Abby & Annika also contributed their babysitting money, bringing the total amount raised to $100!

Back2Back thanks all those, like Abby and Annika, who give of their time and resources to enable us to continue to provide “care for today and hope for tomorrow” to orphans in need around the world!

Students in Action, by Yeong Jiang, Mexico Mission Trip Participant, Xenos Christian Fellowship

December 29, 2009

During our time serving with Back2Back in Monterrey, Mexico, my son, Christopher (15-years old) was inspired by Back2Back Director, Beth Guckenberger’s story about another boy doing a fundraiser for the ministry through an XBOX Tournament.  After we returned, Christopher decided to organize a similar XBOX 360 Halo 3 tournament as a fundraiser.  With our help, he organized the game rules, rented a place, collected prize donations from local stores and business owners and invited his friends and classmates to attend.

After two months of preparation and planning, we had over thirty kids signed up for the tournament and many more just came to watch and cheer for the players. We had fun and raised a total of $540 through the event.  It was a lot of hard work putting it together but it was definitely a successful fundraiser.  Watching my son’s face with eyes full of excitement throughout the whole event was priceless. I am sure that it will be a long-lasting memory for him and a wonderful experience for his spiritual growth.
