On #GivingTuesday, you proved us wrong
You have blessed us.
Recently, we asked you to be a part of our #GivingTuesday online campaign. Our goal was $9,000 — more than we’ve ever raised online in a single day.
Understandably, we were a little anxious. All of us know how difficult it is to ask for money — whether it’s for a high school mission trip, a relief effort or anything else. We must humble ourselves and acknowledge that we need help in order to continue our work.
Although we trust in God’s provision, we worried that we might not reach our goal. But you, our readers, proved us wrong.
You gave $14,240.
We’re so thankful to our matching donors — who gave a challenge gift of $4,500 — and all of those who helped us reach and exceed our goal.
As you know, quality journalism means ever-rising costs — not only to cover stories but also to print and deliver the news. Thank you for believing in us and supporting us.
If you were unable to contribute on #GivingTuesday, there’s still plenty of time to contribute to this good work. We hope you will consider making an end-of-year, tax-deductible gift — online, by phone or by mail — to help us move into 2018.
We also ask that you pray for the work of the Chronicle and for our staff. In 2018, we celebrate 75 years of working to inform, inspire and unite Christians around the world.
We praise God for allowing us to make it this far and pray that we will be able to continue this work for many more years. All of us at The Christian Chronicle consider it a privilege that you allow us a place to tell the good news of Christians around the world.
