Update from our regional organizers Matt and Robin

Hi Bread Leaders and blessings on this Ash Wednesday,

We just wanted to update you on a couple of items.  Many of you have been wondering when the 2010 O.L. kits will be out.  The big snow storm unfortunately slowed mail out of Washington D.C. so they are mailing them out now.  They should arrive by early next week. 

Until then, Matt has put together a list of resources that can help you if you are planning on doing any presentations or Offering of Letter’s at your church:

The “Downloads” page on the OL website contains a host of good resources: http://www.offeringofletters.org/2010/resources/downloads

For hi-res pics, we have a Flickr account where anyone can download images from the OL kit (and other places): http://www.flickr.com/photos/breadfortheworld

Also, we are really hoping that the Western region will be well represented at this years Hunger Justice Leader Conference.  Please help spread the word and encourage 20-30 year olds you know to apply by March 12.  It’s an amazing experience where they will learn about organizing in their own communities to end hunger and best of all, they get to hang and with Matt and Robin!!  The conference will be June 12-15.  Here is a great video you can pass along where Hunger Justice Leader alumni Vanessa Martinez talks about her experience.

The website where the application can be found is here:  http://www.bread.org/get-involved/hunger-justice-leaders-training/2010/   Applications are due March 12.

Thanks so much for any help passing the word. 

In Peace,

Robin and Matt
