King Benjamin Challenge

“I would that ye should impart of your substance to the poor, every man according to that which he hath, such as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and administering to their relief, both spiritually and temporally, according to their wants.” King Benjamin, about 124 BCE

The King Benjamin Challenge invites individuals and families to consider accepting the small personal challenge to save $100 a month, which is enough to save the life of a child. If one does this monthly for a year, it will literally save the lives of a dozen children in the developing world (in one of the 200 communities in the eighteen countries in which we operate). The program—which is designed to allow almost anyone to participate by making small sacrifices (which often are not sacrifices at all)—is based on the Book of Mormon King Benjamin’s admonishment that we not let any beggar (poor person) to petition us in vain because, as he reminds us, “we are all beggars before God.”
