Help America World Defend the Fatherless on #GivingTuesday
Black Friday. Itâ€™s a day when many of us will fight huge crowds at the shopping malls in search of deals on Christmas gifts for our loved ones. Personally, I avoid the malls on Black Friday. I blame the years I spent working retail (you never want to see a J. Crew after closing time on Black Friday).
As much as I love shopping for gifts for my friends and family, though, I always feel a burden for children who will be spending another Christmas waiting for a family. This year, America World is joining the #GivingTuesday movement to help provide for the needs of children who are still living in orphanages throughout the world. #GivingTuesday is a movement designed to kick off the holiday season with a full day devoted to giving to causes that help those in need. This year, #GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2013.
America World has created a page through our friends at Razoo to help raise $10,000 that will go directly toward meeting the basic needs of orphans. 100% of all donations received will be directed to our Isaiah 1:17 Fund, which helps provide basic life necessities for children living in orphanages, like:
- Therapeutic food to treat malnutrition
- Baby formula
- Educational expenses
- Blankets, clothes, and diapers
Will you join us in meeting the needs of children still waiting for their forever family? You can donate by clicking HERE.
Hereâ€™s a little secret â€“ you donâ€™t have to wait until December 3 to give. Our campaign starts today and goes until the end of 2013. Once youâ€™ve donated, you can encourage others to give by linking to our page through Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #GivingTuesday.
Thank you for your heart for Godâ€™s children and for joining us in this excited effort.
