Tikkun Olam: Our Chance to Participate!

Hey gang, Israel doesn’t have the corner on the market in tikkun olam (making the world a better place), which we focused on yesterday.  In fact, I heard of a unique opportunity a few days ago.

Kathie Lee Gifford (whose father was Jewish) is a very committed believer in Jesus Christ who uses her television celebrity status to glorify His name.  She was married to the late Frank Gifford, himself an outspoken Christian during his days as commentator for the NFL.  Kathie Lee’s beloved Frank went home to be with the Lord in 2015, but she recently recorded a song to “honor his memory” and “do some good in the world.”  (Those Jewish roots are shining through!)

All proceeds from the song, “He Saw Jesus,” will go to Samaritan’s Purse, founded and run by Franklin Graham (the son of Billy Graham).  Franklin Graham is one of the world’s most highly-respected evangelical leaders, and Samaritan’s Purse is a worldwide evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization that provides aid to people in physical need as a key part of Christian missionary work.  Tikkun Olam!

I regularly support Samaritan’s Purse and hope you will consider doing likewise.  You can find out more about the work and ministry of Samaritan’s Purse here, and read Kathie Lee’s testimony here.  Enjoy her song here, then either purchase the song (proceeds go to Samaritan’s Purse) or click on the “Donate” button on the Samaritan’s Purse website to donate directly.  Come on Christians, let’s join in tikkun olam!
