‘Tis the season
It’s almost here!
In recent years, #GivingTuesday — the Tuesday after Thanksgiving — has become an international day of giving.
We know a LOT of organizations promote the day and ask for your donations. Out of all of the organizations you could support, we ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us on Dec. 3.
This year our goal is $9,000!
Here are a few reasons why you should consider joining us on #GivingTuesday:
1. Your help makes a difference: This year, your donations will go directly toward helping us grow online. We’re in the early stages of developing a mobile app, which will make it easier for us to connect with one another and get news to you (Want to know when the app launches? Text the word Chronicle to 95577 to be one of the first to know when it’s available in the app store). We’re also working on changes to our newsletter options and how we alert you to important news happening within Churches of Christ. Your donations will help make these changes possible. Each project comes with a price tag and so by donating on Giving Tuesday you will help us to cover the cost of these changes and upgrades to our digital platforms.
2. Be part of a movement: Too often, we think of the holidays in terms of what we spend — not what we give. #GivingTuesday is more than a chance for us to be generous after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a chance for us to take part in a movement of faith-based philanthropy.
4. We print news that matters: In a sea of misinformation and half-truths, we need real journalism of faith. We were thrilled last April to receive the Evangelical Press Association’s first-place Award of Excellence. Our work was also recognized by the Associated Church Press. We don’t tell stories to win awards. We tell stories because we know you care about the things happening in our fellowship. In 2020, we plan to continue bringing you stories that matter to the church. When you contribute, you build on a legacy.
The #GivingTuesday movement, which started in 2012, kicks off the charitable giving season. We hope that this year you’ll make us a part of your plans.
We thank God for each of you and your continued support of The Christian Chronicle.
