From 1990 to 2001, Buddhism has grown in the United States by 170% and is now the fourth most practiced religion in America. As of 2004, there were approximately around 350-500 million Buddhists in the world. It’s very easy to see why Buddhism is becoming more popular. Buddhism offers moral guidance and direction without requiring any accountability or obligation to a god. Buddhism offers peace, tranquility and enlightenment through meditation and it also promises additional chances at life through reincarnation. Content courtesy of Always Be Ready

Mathew 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.
Hunger is a global problem in which one in eight people around the world do not have enough food to eat. Bless It Forward exists to bless others and recognizes the responsibility to be a voice for those that do not have one. That’s why we network with communities to address immediate food needs around the world both domestically and internationally. Each program we support provides nutritious meals for under-nourished children in orphanages, schools, and on the streets. Our programs are also centered around making solutions available to help them in providing for their own daily needs. A single bag of food which delivers highly nutritious meals for six people costs around $1.32 to produce. With your help, together we can Bless It Forward and Impact our world for a better tomorrow.
Countries we work in are United States, Albania, Haiti, Philippines.
Jeremiah 30:17a ‘But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord… (NIV)
Health care is a global problem where nearly 18,000 children under age 5 will die of mostly preventable causes, such as diarrhea, malaria, and pneumonia. Bless It Forward understands that there are many families that do not have the means to buy basic antibodies nor the ability to see a physician when someone in their family is in need. We network with communities that focus on maternal health, using basic medicines, supplies, and interventions to prevent and treat illnesses. We also help provide Bio Sand Water Filters to provide clean water as well as mosquito nets, LED Solar Light Systems, blankets and clothing.
Countries we work in are United States, India, China, Burma, Laos, Thailand.
Jeremiah 29:11 ESV For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Lack of education is a global problem where more than 57 million primary-school-age children are not enrolled in school; 53% of these are girls. These children are at greater risk for exploitation, early marriage, and lower income-earning potential. That is why it is imperative that Bless It Forward gives these kids a voice by providing them the opportunity to learn and to avoid the harsh reality if they don’t. We network with communities to address these barriers of education and work with organizations and local governments to improve the quality of education children receive.
Empowering the Poor is another major initiative Bless It Forward tackles realizing that many people need a helping hand in establishing their own business or growing their current one.
Through blessing them with the vocational tools such as an Embroidery Machine, Fishing Boats, Paddy Threshing Machine, Rickshaw, or a Weaving Loom and many others, we help get families thriving self-sufficiently and impacting their community around them.
Countries we work in is all of Asia, South America.
