It’s here - The official kick-off of our GivingTuesday campaign!
This is a first for us, to ask all of our friends to be involved in a very active way. Will you join us today? It would be such a privilege to have you participate.
We need your help, to encourage those in need of hope in their broken worlds.
In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving. It was created in 2012 as a global day of giving back and doing good for others. This is a joint effort of all non-profit organizations, not necessarily Christian, but with the intent to do good for people in need. In its three years, it has proven to be a real and sustainable fundraising tool. It has grown dramatically each year, with a total of almost $46 million raised in 2014, over 60% more than 2013. All signs indicate that its growth will continue in 2015.
Your donation will be going towards two main projects.
Chile Relief Fund - to assist with Christmas projects in two earthquake and tsunami disaster areas; Dichato and Coquimbo.
Ukrainian Relief Fund - To help meet extreme needs as winter closes in and many are still without food, clothes, a place to keep warm. We would also like to assist in bringing the message of Christmas to thousands who do not know the meaning of this celebration.
Donate online at e-Giving.
REMEMBER - All donations are tax deductible.
We would like to thank you in advance for your encouragement and support. We know because of your contribution, there will be many who hear the message of hope, peace and forgivenness through Jesus our Lord.
God bless you as you participate,
