Something Good from Social Media
Social media can be a mixed bag, but there is no question the internet phenomena can do a lot of good. From finding pets lost in a tornado to raising awareness for important causes, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the rest of the social media sites have woven themselves into the fabrics of our lives.
One of the most generous ideas to come out of social media is #GivingTuesday. As Black Friday madness peaked, lives were lost to raucous crowds while epic examples of self-gratification and selfishness dominated the news. Amidst these tragedies of excess, along came an opportunity to give instead of consume.
Giving Tuesday was the brainchild of the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, and was announced in 2012 on Mashable. According to the Non-Profit Hub, in its third year giving went up 63 percent, as Black Friday sales went in the other direction. Apparently it did feel pretty good to give.
Let Your Giving Count for the Gospel
If you’re considering a #GivingTuesday donation this year, we’d like for you to think of us. Global Heart Ministries is taking the Gospel into the living rooms of Central Asia and the Middle East by broadcasting quality Christian programs via satellite. This technology allows the Gospel to reach men, women and children no missionary would ever have the opportunity to meet.
While we welcome prayers, volunteering and donations every day of the year, we are particularly in need of your financial donation this holiday season. We have a $128,000 shortfall in our budget and we need your help. In Ezekiel 22:30, God is searching for someone to stand in the gap for Israel. Today we need you to stand in the gap for us.
Help Reap the Harvest
You can partner with Global Heart Ministries to fulfill The Great Commission in this generation. Together we can bring the light and the truth of Jesus Christ right into the living rooms of every deceived child, every oppressed woman, and every hurting home. This is our message. This is our call.
We invite you to join this vision as a volunteer, a prayer warrior, or a financial donor. Contact us today by phone or email. Let us know how you’d like to partner with us as we reach out to the Most Unreached regions of the world.
