"We cannot change the whole world, we know that, but we can change the whole world for that one child."
- Monica Conant
When you first begin to ponder the numerous possibilities to help people in crisis in this world, it can feel overwhelming. But once you begin to see the faces and lives of those you can assist, you realize you are on a journey that is bigger than all the American-fashioned plans we make to enjoy our lives.
When we considered the people and the places that we wanted to focus on, our hearts galvanized toward Africa and India. And so in 1984, long before RLC became a company, we began to allow our hearts to be moved to share a small part of what we had been blessed with financially. Since that time, our commitment has bloomed as a result of our employees and our customers. As a continuation of that personal journey, we wanted to invite you to take the opportunity to get involved with people in crisis who are desperate for help.
At RLC, we support charities in both the United States and abroad. But unlike the United States, in times of disaster, people in developing nations are often left without recourse or assistance from their government. It only seemed natural to offer a deeper level of financial commitment to these people and to the ministries who are devoting their entire lives to helping the most desperate and marginalized people on earth.
It is true that we cannot change the whole world, but we can change the whole world for that one person we chose to help. If we all begin to focus on that more, it becomes a song that can be sung over a nation that begins to change the landscape and the people in that land. It’s a contagious thing.

ABOUT OUR STORY
Faith Hope Love Uganda
Inspired by a life-changing mission trip, Faith Hope Love Uganda was established in 2018. We exist to educate, inspire and create lasting solutions to poverty by distributing school & hygiene supplies, creating sustainable income opportunities and providing school fees for those living in Uganda.
From a poverty-stricken abandoned child at age 6 to becoming a multi-millionaire, Charles Mully left his comfortable life of success and wealth nearly 30 years ago to answer God’s call to serve the least of these. Mully Family have given their entire lives and considerable fortune to rescue, adopt, house, feed, clothe, and educate well over 18,000 Kenyan orphans who have graduated from the program, as well as an additional 4,500 who are currently in the program.
International Justice Mission
International Justice Mission is a global organization that protects people in poverty from violence. We partner with local authorities in 24 program offices in 14 countries to combat trafficking and slavery, violence against women and children, and abuse of power.
Light a Candle
We are not afraid of the darkest places but rather rush into them! The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will not overcome it. We are rescuing children from a life of hopelessness, exploitation, even forced temple prostitution. One by one, we long to bring them into the arms of LOVE.
Since 1952, we are world leaders in holistic child development, pairing compassionate people with children living in extreme poverty to release them from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. We are whole-life focused meaning we begin with prenatal care and assist all the way through young adulthood.
