When your business runs out of money and you need a miracle, whom do you call? The Catholic Church, apparently.
Warwick Jordan is a New Zealander, the owner of the second-hand bookstore "Hard to Find Bookshop" - and not Catholic.
This summer, Jordan found himself strapped for cash. The building in which he kept his bookshop had been sold and bought by new owners, who were now asking for commercial rent, which was out of his budget.
He tried everything to raise the funds, including an online crowdsourcing page on Give a Little. Even though he was able to raise $27,000, that still wasn't enough.
