750 LIVES CHANGED
80% of deaths in Rwanda are caused by the unclean water that they are forced to drink. In our first quarter, 750 people from Rwanda were given clean water for life and no longer have to worry about their next drink being one that will kill them. What other shirt do you have in your closet that has saved someone's life? We thank Fermi for all they do to ELEVATE the people of Rwanda.

300 LIVES CHANGED
Children with Club Foot in Central America are often said to be cursed and left for dead by their families. If left untreated by the time they are three years old, the children will never walk and will become social outcasts and street beggars. Through TWO-FIVE, hundreds of children received the casting to heal them of Club Foot and lead a normal life! We thank the doctors and nurses who give their time and talent to heal these children.
350 LIVES CHANGED
Hurricane Ike left many families devastated and without hope. Their communities, homes, possessions and lives were destroyed without warning. TWO-FIVE and its customers were able to give food, clothes, building supplies and toiletries to 350 victims. Comfort and hope were given to these individuals as they began to piece their lives back together. We'd like to thank the RED CROSS and all of the local South Houston Churches for their work to help those displaced by Ike.
Each day the statistics for domestic and child abuse climb. We decided that we needed to play a role in providing aid for women and children who had been abused and were in need of care and shelter. During the BEAR HUG initiative, TWO-FIVE sent financial support to help protect these victims. Along with financial means, we provided new teddy bears that were given to all frightened children the day they arrived at the shelter. We would like to personally thank Mercy Ministries for the work they continue to do with women and children and for allowing TWO-FIVE to come alongside them during the BEAR HUG initiative.
When we picture children, we see them energetic and full of life. But, this is not the case for many children in Liberia, Africa. Many do not even have the energy to stand because they have not had food for weeks. Every TWO-FIVE purchase during the HUNGRY quarter gave a starving child his daily meals for 2 weeks! We thank Feed the Hungry for their efforts to solve the epidemic of hunger in our world.

250 LIVES CHANGED / INDIA
Survival is not something that most of us struggle with on a regular basis. But, for many families in India, it is something they are confronted with every day. They consistently wonder if their families will have food for the coming days. For these people, roosters and chickens are a viable source of food and income. During the CHICKEN INITIATIVE, each TWO-FIVE design helped buy a chicken for one of these families. We would like to say thank you to Gospel for Asia for their dedication in bringing food and the gospel to the hurting people of India.
