Melisa's Connect Group Story

Jul 24 2017

Hello!

I would like to share our Connect Group story in supporting A21 through The 500Project. Colour Conference has inspired us to contribute in raising awareness to people around us about human trafficking. We believe that God has given us talents and ability to make a change and glorify His name. We also believe that our small sacrifice can help to change someone’s life.

As a connect group, we are people with different backgrounds; one of us is a pastry chef, some of us work in the design industry and business. Our first project was in July 2016, we managed to raise $570 by making and selling pineapple cookies. This month we just finished our second project by selling 89 tins of almond tuile and we have raised $531.55 for this project.

The process of the project started with brainstorming what we were going to sell, the concept and what the end product would look like. Then, we started making a plan for the marketing, design, baking process and delivery. We announced our project through Instagram, amazingly so many people were willing to order as they also believed in the cause of the 500Project. The baking process involved several late night baking sessions to be done following our work and uni commitments. We managed to bake from scratch around 850 pineapple cookies and around 1400 almond tuile.

We hope that our small contribution can bring freedom to someone’s life and also to be a channel of what God has entrusted in our lives. We always remember what Ps Bobbie said “one can do so little but together we can do so much”.

Thank you for opening our eyes to the issues around the world and to have continuously inspired us to play a part in what God is doing through His church.

Blessings,
Melisa
