— BLOOD:WATER MISSION —
25:40 love was pleased to partner with Blood:Water Mission by donating a portion of our proceeds to this life-changing organization.
Blood:Water began as a call to personalize the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. After funding a late stage AIDS hospice, Co-Founders Jars of Clay and Jena Lee Nardella learned of the vital link between living with HIV/AIDS and the need for clean, safe water. People living with HIV/AIDS have a weakened immune system. Bacteria in dirty water holds the potential to be life-threatening for those living with the virus, while it may only make a person without the virus slightly ill.
Blood:Water is an equipping agency that partners with African grassroots organizations to address the HIV/AIDS and water crises. They do this by identifying Africa’s hidden heroes and coming alongside their vision for change. Through technical, financial and organizational support, Blood:Water expands the readiness and effectiveness of African civil society organizations and the communities they serve.

— No. 41 —
25:40 love was thrilled to partner with No. 41 by donating a portion of our proceeds to this life-changing organization.
No.41 started on a whim and a prayer in March 2012, with the intent of teaching young women from the Noel Orphanage in Gisenyi, Rwanda (ages 18-25) not only to sew, a culturally relevant trade that would always sustain them, but to give back to their community through a feeding program supporting local schools. The first No.41 bag was sold in May 2012 and today they employ 20 women from the orphanage, as well as 10 from the surrounding village. They have 8 mamas better caring for their 12 children and 19 of their young women are now enrolled in university. In February 2013, No.41 opened their first feeding program, providing a hot, healthy lunch to 900+ students and teachers, daily.
No.41 is about empowering young women. Their goal is not to give them the world, but to show them that God has already given them everything they need to go out there and take it. When you join with No. 41, you are truly changing the world FOR ONE. No.41 is a testament to all that God wants to do in you and through you, if you’ll just say, yes. www.no41.org
— MORNING STAR FOUNDATION —
25:40 love partnered with Morning Star Foundation by donating a portion of our proceeds to the LOVE project. The sad reality for many impoverished families around the world who have children born with congenital heart disease is that they are often forced to choose between abandoning their child or watching their child die.
No parent should have to make this choice, and no child should suffer without a parent simply because taking care of them is too expensive. The LOVE project aims at forming a community of believers who come together to reach out to families parenting children with heart disease who because of financial limitations are faced with this terrible choice. The LOVE project requires significant funding—but the needs do not stop there. In addition to caring financially for these families, the LOVE project will provide volunteers to invest in each of the families by caring for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs until the child recovers. Join 25:40 love in support of the remarkable work Morning Star Foundation is doing on behalf of the least of these (Matthew 25:40). morningstarproject.org/
— ST. JUDE —
25:40 love was pleased to partner with St. Jude by donating a portion of our proceeds to this life-changing organization.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since they opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs they make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
— MERCY CHILDCARE MINISTRY —
25:40 love was pleased to partner with Mercy Childcare Ministry by donating a portion of our proceeds to this life-changing organization.
Mercy Childcare Ministry was founded by Pastor Wilfred Blair Rugumba and Pastor Wilson Bugembe in Uganda in 2002. This work was inspired by Pastor Wilson’s life story; having lost both his parents to AIDS, he ended up living on the streets of Kampala. He faced mistreatment from his grandparents and then met a good Samaritan on the streets who took him into his home and educated him.
In response to the overwhelming numbers of street children, orphans and abandoned babies being brought to Pastors Wilfred and Wilson for help, they opened their single-roomed house (10x8ft) for such children. At the time, they were still in high school. Since that time, they have continued taking in children, doing what they can for each individual and their family as the Lord allows them. Through rescue, rehabilitation, reconciliation and restoration, Mercy Childcare Ministry is truly serving the least of these (Matthew 25:40). www.mercychildcare.org.
