This idea was not only a great example of Buyamba Creative Giving, but more importantly, Brent believed that this gift would help honor a man whom he admired so much. He explained, "Mike's genuine passion and joy in serving Jesus and helping those in need continues to be a great example for my family and me. Having visited Africa on mission teams with church, Mike was especially passionate about Buyamba and the children of God Cares School. It has been a natural extension to share that joy and passion with our restaurant teams."

When Bonnie found out that she could take advantage of numerous tax benefits by making a Qualifying Charitable Distribution directly from her traditional IRA, she was on it. (A QCD excludes the amount donated from gross taxable income.) Following the rules, she made a donation with the check coming directly from her IRA trustee to her favorite charity, Buyamba.
Bonnie says, "Giving to Buyamba is a blessing because I believe in what God Cares School is doing. I have been there and seen it all with my own eyes. I know that the ministry does what it says it does and the money I give really does go to help these children."
Florence Dongo’s visit to the U.S. creates a perfect chance to get this opportunity off the ground. If you live in Southern California, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas, or the Sebring/Orlando area of Florida, we want you to get involved! Please join us this spring and invite Florence into your home to meet some new and current Buyamba friends. It's an easy, relaxing way to introduce Buyamba and share your passion with your friends and family. We will provide you with a simple booklet called “Share Buyamba” that will give your guests a quick overview as they meet Florence over coffee, dinner, or a gathering of your choice. The idea is to share the passion that is within YOU to impact these lives. You can be God’s mouthpiece to share the powerful message that we have the ability within our means to achieve Buyamba’s vision to empower a generation to impact their nation for Christ.
Contact our Buyamba office today by clicking above and emailing Melissa Carlson for more information and to schedule this special time with Florence, as she makes the trip out to the U.S. to thank those who love her children. We will fully equip you. There are limited spaces and scheduling has begun.
