What Does N1000 Mean To You?


I shared what N1000 means to me through this post. I would really like to know what it means to you too. For my foreign friends, N1000 is approx £3.50 or $6. If you can spare as much, please help us as we share with the less fortunate this Christmas!

The Rising Star

For me, N1000 means that I can get a nice Take Away from my local convenience store, and not have to worry about cooking.  With the extra time, I can have more peace of mind as I go about my day.

For our Cleaner, N1000 is one week’s transport to the office, at N200 per day.

For Sarah’s Mom, N1000 extra in her pocket means that the family can have rice this week, instead of the usual garri and water!  What a treat!

For 10 year old Emmanuel, N1000 is the cost of the Maths Textbook that he needs to prepare for the end of term examination…

It is interesting how N1000 means so many different things for different people.  So many people don’t realise how lucky they are to have the option of spending N1000 on a luxury item, like my Take Away, while others need it to survive!

  1. Thank you Ufuoma it’s so good that you are seeking help for those in need , helping others willingly from our heart is one of the most important things we can do and we will want to do it in Christ Jesus because He wants too and will motivate us to.

    But giving overseas except through a Charity has presented problems for me, I lost so much through Bank fees and currency change over it was not worth it, last time I lost $135, also Pay Pale won’t accept my Australia Post Visa and I was warned not to give private details on the Internet by the Police when someone used my identity to buy a car, now I give to Charities or those in need in my own Country including those who help Children overseas.

    Keep up the good work – Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.

    • Thanks Anne! I’m glad you considered giving all the same. GlobalGiving is actually a very safe and global platform for donors. But, if you’re not confident, I won’t push you to take a risk.

      Thanks for the encouragement as usual!

  2. It is not that I’m just not confident Ufuoma about giving details, as I shared before I have also lost a lot of money because of fees and the exchange rate which could have been used to help those in need, this is why in future I will support through the Church or Charities in Australia who are exempt from charges or can absorb them.

    Blessings – Anne.
