Each month, through your purchase of a Faith Night In Date, Night In Boxes will make a donation on your behalf, to a new charitable organization. This is a wonderful way for you to be a part of what is going on in your community and around the world!
Through each purchase of a FNI date during the month of May, 2 packets of life-saving food were provided to children in need!
"Every year, severe acute malnutrition claims the lives of 2.6 million children. That’s one child every 12 seconds. But here’s the thing...it’s preventable. Children suffering from severe acute malnutrition have a low weight-for-height ratio and suffer from wasting (extreme thinness) or edema (swelling)—often resulting from illness and a lack of nutritious foods in their diet. It is a preventable, yet serious, life-threatening condition currently afflicting 20 million children worldwide, and right now less than 10% of children are receiving the life-saving treatments they need. But that’s all about to change."
During the month of July, a donation was made to the Sierra Club! Each proud recipient of a Faith Night In box is now the honorary owner of their own SEA TURTLE! One of the many aims of the Sierra Club is to protect these precious creatures in the Florida everglades and around the world. Their mission, with your help, is to “actively work to protect our land and water so plants and animals can survive and thrive for generations to come -- and all Americans have the liberty to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.” It is our joyous duty to protect and respect the gifts that God has given us to enjoy.

On behalf of the FNI community, this September, we were able to make a donation to The Bottomless Toy Chest. This wonderful organization is devoted to delivering art projects, crafts and interactive games to hospitalized pediatric cancer patients across the U.S. “Each item we present is brand new, gift-wrapped in cellophane and ribbon and hand-delivered to a patient. The clear gift-wrap keeps the items clean and safe for children with weakened immune systems, gives them a choice in an environment where they have no choices, and gives children who are under massive physical and emotional distress the joyful experience of opening a present.” As you sit down to enjoy your GAME NIGHT date this month, our hope is that you would come alongside us as we lift these children in our thoughts and prayers
As we talk about the beauty of trees during October's Fall In Love date date, we want you to know that you are making an impact in the world! Through your purchase of a Fall In Love date, you have contributed
to the mission of Plant with Purpose.
The rural communities we partner with are facing a vicious cycle of extreme poverty and environmental degradation. Too often, desperation drives families to cut trees in order to clear more farmland or earn cash by selling charcoal or fire wood. The rampant deforestation ultimately leads to worse conditions for farming families as it depletes the soil and compromises its ability to retain water, resulting in lower crop yields and less income. Plant With Purpose is equipping farmers to get at the literal roots of poverty through reforestation and sustainable farming techniques. By restoring their land, farmers are producing more food to put on the table and more income to provide for household needs. – Plant With Purpose
