Tom Davis, the author of Red Letters, Living a Faith the Bleeds started this campaign.

Tonight at the book club we decided as a group, that each of us would give $5.00 a month to the 5 for fifty campaign. That is such a doable amount. Really, for just about anyone. So, what I will do is send out an E-mail on the first of the month telling all the book clubbers that it's our time to do our donation. Then we can mail it, or go to the web site and put it on our credit cards. It's that easy to make a difference.
Thank you ladies. Ya'll are great. I am so glad I have such great friends with such amazing hearts.
In the back of the book, "Red Letters, Living a Faith the Bleeds" there is a bunch of great resources. Here are some if you want to help.

close to the end of this book is a prayer quoted from st. Francis of Assisi:
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy;
o Divine Master,
grant that i may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
