Crazy Money Day – Irish and Choctaw Generosity
It’s Crazy Money Day!
I have American Indian blood, so this story is very meaningful to me. In 1847, the Choctaw Nation learned of the Irish potato famine. They wanted to help, so they sent $170 to their aid. This year, Coronavirus hit the Navajo and Hopi tribes hard. They’ve had thousands of positive cases and many deaths.
173 years have passed, but the Irish remembered the Choctaw’s generosity. A GoFundMe campaign was started, and by early May, nearly $3 million had been raised. That original $170 gift, was multiplied by the generosity of thousands of people. Speaking of generosity, remember to support this ministry, you can donate online today at crown.org.
