ORDINARY LIFE causes
Our class members are incredibly generous. Just last year we gave away $36,000 to various organizations. Half of our yearly collection goes to missions of St. Paul's seeking to empower poor and under-resourced communities. A few examples are Rutabaga, Fe y Esperanza, and the Zoe Orphan Project. The other half is divided among social justice initiatives, spiritual formation programs, and non-profits in the Houston area where members of our class are involved.
The following organizations received a total of $18,000 gifts from Ordinary Life in 2017: Justice for Our Neighbors, Kiva Loans International, Emergency Aid Coaltion, Magnificat House, Boys and Girls Harbor of Houston, Smiles & fur Friends, Amazing Place, Iconoclast Artists, Interfaith Ministries of Houston, International Justice Mission, and The Omega Center. We also gave a significant amount to the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund at St. Paul's.
