Mercy's Village is wonderful example of what happens when beautiful hearts and brilliant minds collide. My wife and I have been amazed by the incredible impact this organization has had not only on our own lives, but of those of our children. Our girls' understanding of how small this world really is and the importance of helping others is a concept that could not have been taught in text books or by watching Discovery channel. And now, by having a direct connection to a remote region of the world (Gulu, Uganda) via Mercy's Village, our family now has real dialogue and a relationship with a group of people 10,000 miles away from our home in Los Angeles, but that distance seems to be getting shorter and shorter with every loving letter and smiling photo exchanged between my two daughters and their Ugandan friend, Sharon.

Mercy's Village is a grassroots organization that is aiming to support Ugandan children and their families. This organization is tending to the hearts of children by helping them gain and education and give them a hope for the future. They are also ministering to the families and villages nearby, offering hope to regain a livelihood that has been taking away due to war. This organization looks to serve the whole community starting with the lives of the children.

Mercy's Village has really helped my daughters (5 & 8) become more compassionate and giving. They get so excited to learn about the work that is happening in Gulu. For our family, Mercy's Village represents an opportunity to give and teach our girls the importance of helping others. My 8 year old now knows more about Africa than most adults and both my girls are very active in sharing with their schools how they too can get involved in changing lives in Gulu. We love Mercy's Village!

My whole family has been impacted by Mercy's Village. My husband will likely be the first of our family to actually go to Mercy's Village, and my goal is for our entire family to spend time there.

Some people dream about making the world a better place - about building something from the ground up, or seeing something wrong in the world and actually taking steps to change things. Some people only dream - but the people at Mercy's Village are making dreams come true for the people of Uganda. The children in the Gulu region of Uganda have survived unimaginable horrors at the hands of the LRA, a rebel army that kidnapped so many of them and forced them into a war against their own people... their own families even. And yet... they somehow manage to smile with their whole hearts even in the shadow of such devastation. The people of Uganda have a joy that cannot be contained - and maybe that's because they don't feel the need to contain it the way we do. They embrace each day and each person as a gift: fragile (and perhaps fleeting). My friend Jeami told me recently: "I am learning that there is never enough in Africa." To some that would be an overwhelming realization. For some, that would stop them in their tracks. The amazing people involved with Mercy's Village will not be swayed, however. Step by step, plot by plot and acre by acre, they've secured land in the Gulu region to build a school for these kids. Volunteers have travelled from around the world to clear brush and break ground in order to build something far more than walls and a roof or a source of fresh water. Mercy's Village is building lives, futures and dreams for generations to come. I'm thrilled and humbled to play even a small part in these kids lives... its an investment that I believe will have far greater returns than any stock market I know. Please check out www.MercysVillage.org and see how you can make a difference too.

Humble, capable leadership who are thoughtfully and compassionately building a school for kids who would not otherwise have access to education.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Amazing, creative, dedicated... people of ACTION.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

(Can I get back to you on this!?! - there is so much that they could do!!)
