Ways to Give!! (even if you can't make the concert)

Thank you for your interest in helping raise money and awareness to this very fixable problem! Some have already sent money, and to you I say, THANK YOU!!!

If you want to send money and aren't coming to our local event, here are a few ways.

1) a check can be sent to me at my address:
Steven Swihart
608 Davis Ave
Nampa, ID 83651

2) Paypal (no, you do not need a paypal acct, just a bank acct!)
-Go to
-Click on "send money"
-Enter the amount
-Click on "friends and family"
-Follow to the next step to enter my email address: in the "to" line.
-You've got it from here

3) Write a check to "New Covenant Community Church" if you need a tax deductible receipt. Their address is: New Covenant Community Church, Attn: Scott Borman, 1744 E. Nees Ave., Fresno, CA 93720. Please put on the MEMO line: Haiti/Idaho

4) Find me at work or church and give it to me in person. I'll take a hug too (to take to the people for you!)

Concert for a (Great) Cause!!

Save the date! Saturday, January 14th, 2012 at the Kuna Performing Arts Center! Come on out for a night of entertainment and inspiration! Tickets will be available soon online at and at the door. Only $12 each and $30 for a family (up to 5 people). All money raised is designated for Converge PacWest's efforts to get Clean Water to the people of Maissade, Haiti!

This year's concert is going to be amazing! Last year's concert was fun, and pretty successful in terms of filling the room, but this year's venue is much larger and nicer! I really appreciated all of you coming our last year! I appreciate Matt from Northern Lights letting us use one of his theater spaces for free and other venues offering their spaces for this year's event.

This year we are featuring some of the same artists and some fun new ones! If you know me, I rarely turn down someone who wants to perform. On the marquee is:
-Addam Chavarria
-Taylor Aldrich
-Andrew Coba
-Amanda Wight
-and many more including fiddlers, a dance troop and a rap artist.

There will be a silent auction (credit cards accepted).
The featured item is a football autographed by the Boise State senior class! Other items will feature donated items (if you want to donate an item or basket from your self or your business let me know!)

All of this is to raise money for a very important cause: Clean Water for Haiti.
We forget how easy we have it sometimes. We turn the faucet and there it is. You don't have to worry about cholera taking our life as you drink that water. People in Haiti, literally millions, don't have this basic luxury. $1=clean water for a year for 1 person.

Even if you cannot attend this function and you want to support us, I will have a separate post with ways to give. Thank you all for supporting this great cause!

With Love,
the Swiharts
