Change the World on December 3rd and Double Your Money!

Who can’t get on board with such a fabulous offer like that?

To support hundreds of ministries and missionaries through The Advance, Tuesday, December 3rd has been designated “Giving Tuesday” by the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries.  And here’s the amazing part – on this one day – and one day only, your gift will be DOUBLED!  

According to the “Giving Tuesday” press release:

The Advance is the denomination’s giving channel that ensures that 100 percent of each gift supports the project designated by the donor. More than 850 Methodist-related projects and more than 300 missionaries are supported by The Advance; all of them have gone through a rigorous review process and are accountable for how funds are used.

Get a preview of The Advance mission projects right here.

What an amazing way to celebrate our connection as United Methodists…and what a way to remind our congregations that in the post-Thanksgiving, post-Black Friday let-down - there’s at least one way to begin the Christmas spirit – by assisting some of the best and most-worthy mission projects in the world.  

And did I mention…your donation is doubled!  That’s a deal by any stretch of the imagination.  Spread the word.  Tuesday, December 3rd is “Giving Tuesday.”


P.S. Don’t forget my offer to review and offer suggestions on your Christmas and/or year end letter.  Send it to me at inspiringgenrosity@gmail.com.
