Legacy of Love

Legacy is important – be it moral, spiritual or material, it’s an amazing way to spread goodness in the world and to care for others…

Take Ed and Jeannette Schatschneider. Besides a wonderful and large family, they’ve had a very fruitful career. They’ve built and sold six homes. Now, they manage a large cattle farm.

Life has been good to them. So in happy gratitude and out of deep faith, they’ve decided to give back.

First, a few years ago, they became faithful monthly donors to Hope and Healing International – giving the amazing gift of sight to hundreds of moms, dads and children.

Then, they realized they could do even more. They could keep on giving even after their earthly life was complete. Giving a legacy gift just seemed like the right and perfect thing to do. So, when they made their Wills, they remembered Hope and Healing’s sight-giving mission and work.

“The work Hope and Healing International does really struck a chord with us,” Ed explains. “Restoring sight is so important. It’s something we can’t do ourselves, but our money can.”

Ed and Jeannette wanted their future gift to be used where the need for restoring sight is greatest. They have no doubt that their legacy gift will be used just as effectively as their annual gifts are used now.

Also, they encourage everyone to consider Hope and Healing International for a similar gift. “Give any amount you can,” Ed exclaims with enthusiasm, “even a little can make a difference. And you will have the real satisfaction of knowing what a powerful impact you can have on those in need.”

Thanks to valued long-time supporters like Ed and Jeanette, Hope and Healing International will continue its ministry of healing and joy for a long time to come. You can help too by creating a gift in your estate plans.
