    This is a beautiful idea from someone with a beautiful heart! πŸ™‚ What a blessing you are! My first instinct would be to use the money to help pay down debt. (I'm trying to get out of debt by the end of the year because my heart longs to live in Africa as a full time missionary!) But, there's a little piece of my heart that knows I would need to tithe half of it first and then use the rest to pay down debt!
