GET YOUR YOUTH GROUP INVOLVED
The deepest need of any human being is the need to be loved. Across the world today, there are millions of vulnerable children who are isolated, neglected, discouraged and discarded. Mother Teresa once said -
“Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is truly the most terrible poverty.”
The Alongsiders movement is now active in 13 countries across Asia and Africa. In the past 5 years, over 5000 youth have been reached. Flip Flop Sunday is an opportunity for your youth group to walk alongside vulnerable children around the world in three easy steps:
Rally your youth group to walk alongside the Christian youth and vulnerable children of Alongsiders by raising awareness and funds on Flip Flop Sunday (20 October 2019) in whichever way you like. Decide as a group what this will be - whether getting family and friends to sponsor you as you wear flip flops (sandals, slippers, thongs, jandals) for the entire month, holding a movie night, organising a fun-run, quiz night, bake sale…the possibilities are endless.
Promote your event to your group’s family and friends, share on social media using #wewalkalongside and encourage people to donate to Alongsiders International.
On Flip Flop Sunday, host your event and have fun knowing that your group is making an impact in the lives of vulnerable children!
