IN MY LIFE:
I promised a big announcement from Project 615 today and I’m keeping my word: today marks the launch of their July campaign “Do Everything in Love”. Project 615 is teaming up with Nashville non profit, Project R12, to raise money to build a children’s home in Uganda. This campaign is a step towards breaking the cycle of poverty by raising up a new generation of leaders who are passionate about sustainable change originating in jobs, education, access to health, a voice to the forgotten, and justice for the oppressed.
Project 615 is selling these special-edition apparel with 100% of the profits going towards building a children’s home in Uganda. I’ve bought my tee already and I hope you’ll do the same (see link below).
We’re also looking forward to Star Wars in Concert with the Nashville Symphony this weekend. For the first time ever at the Schermerhorn, audiences can experience the iconic Star Wars films like never before! Travel to “a galaxy far, far away” and enjoy A New Hope projected in HD above the stage, while the Nashville Symphony performs John Williams’ Academy Award-winning score live. The symphony will do the same with a new Star Wars film each year for the next few years, but you can join us for the inaugural event this Sunday, July 8th.
PRAYER FOCUS: Adventure
It dawned on me that yesterday’s verse I shared with you would have been more appropriate for today, but as we make the long drive back to Nashville, I felt it fitting to pray a sense of adventure over each of you.
MONTH OF 615
As a reminder, all month on The Daily Dash I’ll be wearing tees from Project 615, who supports world-changing causes through their apparel. Today’s pick is Project 615’s latest campaign tee, the “Do Everything in Love” Sunset unisex tee. Not only is the message simple and cool, but I love the texture and color of this shirt.
