From Mercy's Well email newsletter of February 21, 2013:
Occasionally, we make mistakes...actually we make them quite often! But...we wanted to take a moment and correct some information from our newsletter earlier this morning.
In talking about our involvement with Compassion International and our recent missions trip to Haiti, we reported that the goal had been met to purchase a new tent for Ashlee (our newly sponsored child in Haiti) and her family. That information is INCORRECT, so let me clarify.
After sharing about our trip, some wonderful friends in Florida felt led to collect money from their Sunday School class to purchase three water filtration systems through Compassion's Water Of Life program. On a separate note, Greg mentioned on Facebook after our trip of a need for a tent for Ashlee's family.
We ARE still accepting donations for the "tent" project for her family and we are over half way to our goal. If you wish to help, there's still time. We will be making a donation through Compassion for this family and 100% of the money received will be used to purchase the tent and make repairs. No administrative costs are taken out of these type gifts with Compassion. If you wish to help, you can send a donation through PayPal to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you can mail a check to:
5603-B West Friendly Ave., PMB 272
Greensboro, NC 27410
Make checks payable to Mercy's Well (include "ASHLEE" in the memo line) and we will be sending one payment directly to Compassion. This is the only way we can make sure these dollars go directly to our newly sponsored child and her family. For peace of mind and transparency, we will provide each donor with a detailed statement of how their money was used.
We apologize for any confusion. Hopefully we will see each of you at a concert or worship service very soon!
