Lenten alms giving: 40 Bucks for Lent

As part of your Lenten alms giving, please allow me to suggest to you a worthy and urgent charitable cause, namely the support of our brothers and sisters in Christ suffering greatly in the Middle East.

As part of their ongoing Christians At Risk campaign (#ChristiansAtRisk), the Knights of Columbus are encouraging us to give "40 Bucks For Lent." The new aspect of the Christians At Risk campaign, which has already raised more than $10 million, comes with its own Twitter hashtag: #40BucksForLent

You can make your donation either through the Christians At Risk web site, or by sending a check made payable to "Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc." with "Christian Refugee Relief" on the memo line to this address:
Knights of Columbus Charities
One Columbus Plaza
P.O. Box 1966
New Haven, CT 06509-1966
Please also remember the persecuted members of the Body of Christ daily in your prayers and offer your sufferings for them.
