Got Equity?

You are probably thinking, “I would sure like more equity!”

Throughout the years I have been advised by family and friends to make investments to help establish my personal equity.  Unfortunatey (or fortunatly depending on your perspective) my wife and I have not been able to own a home. It has always been our goal but we were also blessed with living situations that were part of my job.  Then, just over two years ago, the little equity we had in regards to material possessions were sold in preparation to move to France. In the past, home ownership was a wonderful way to build equity, but with the recent economic downfall in the United States and around the world, investmetns that used to yeild high returns are looked at now with much skepticism.

You may not think of yourself as having much equity.  However, we all have been blessed with various forms of equity that can be shared with the world around us.

At Orchids of Light it is our mission to invest in small communities around the world and guarentee postive returns.

We get first-hand reports and feedback from our global partners and see exactly how our investments…our equity is making a difference in their lives and communities.

As we gerously give to those in need now, we are working toward the betterment of their future…and ours!

French philospopher Albert Camus once said, “Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.”

When we give to others from what we have been blessed with, we discover the beautiful truth that we, in return, are also the ones blessed.  Saint Francis of Assisis, a Christian bishop. sumarized one of Jesus’ quotes by saying, “It is in giving that we receive.”

We may not think of ourselvs as having much equity, or even expendable income but we can trust that God will use whatever we have and multiple it to bless others.  I love this quote by Anne Frank, “No one ever became poor by giving.”

Mother Teresa realized that other forms of equity were just as equal, if not more valuable then monetary.  She said, “Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them.  So, spread your love everywhere you go.”

Orchids of Light needs donations of TimeTalent and Treasure.  We need YOU to partner with us in making a difference in the world.  Will you say “yes” to the opportunity to impact others in far greater ways than you can imagine?
