‘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.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider joining us on #GivingTuesday:
1. Your help makes a difference: While we don’t dig wells or clean up after disasters, our reporting connects you with Christians who do. This year we traveled to Chad with Hope Springs International and reported on the mission to bring clean water and the Gospel to Central Africa. Following Hurricane Dorian, we reached those working in the Bahamas to report on the immediate needs after the storm. We make it a priority to help connect you with those organizations. We travel with them and cover the good news of what they do around the world. Without your help, we wouldn’t be able to tell those stories and make those connections.
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.
3. 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.
