Our Mission

We help the local church practice solidarity with the global poor by conducting research, engaging students and simplifying charity.

By "the local church", we mean anyone who believes in Jesus as Savior and Lord and is a part of the Body of Christ.

By "practice solidarity", we mean love that is embodied in action. Solidarity is a virtue and one of the foundational principles of Catholic social teaching. Virtues are cultivated through repeated actions that become habits and then character traits. We promote the practice of five spiritual disciplines of solidarity with the poor: Giving, Prayer, Fasting, Gratitude and Living by Faith. For more information, see www.simplecharity.org/practice

By "the global poor", we mean any person who experiences destitution and suffering because of a lack of economic, social or spiritual resources.
