America’s Giving Challenge

Oct 16th 2009

Myanmar is one of the world’s poorest countries. As a whole nation people live on an average of $2.56/day. According to the UN, around one-third of Myanmar’s people survive on less than US$1 a day. Half of all children fail to complete primary school, and over 30% of the nations children suffer form malnutrition.  In addition to the devastation of Cyclone Nargis, HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria claim hundreds of thousands of lives each year.

Calvary has had the amazing privilege of partnering with a group of orphanages to serve the poorest of the poor, and God is doing a marvelous work amidst the orphaned and abandoned children who live there. Our teams have seen children of all ages being fed, clothed, educated and loved.  The needs are vast and continue to mount.  What if we could serve 100 children, giving them food, clothing, medical care, an education, and a daily reminder that someone across the world loves them?  What if we could build a new dormitory for girls and help start a chicken farm that will produce eggs to feed children?

Today I ran across an amazing opportunity to make a difference – AMERICA’S GIVING CHALLENGE. The challenge is to get the most daily donations to our cause.  The challenge ends on November 6th with the top seven causes receiving between $10,000 – $50,000.  In addition there is a daily challenge, the top daily cause receives a $1000.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much hope $50,000 would give to 100 children in Myanmar.HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:

1)  Every day that you donate at least $10 to the cause counts as one donation in the challenge.  If you donate twice in one day, it’s still just counts as one donor.  If you donate $25 it still just counts as one donor.  Every new day, you can be a new donor.

2)  The challenge ends on November 6.  If you donate $10 every day between now and November 6th you will have donated $220 and you will have given us 22 points/donations towards the challenge.

3)  Currently the leading cause has less than 700 points/donations.  If we will donate, and invite friends to join the cause and donate, we can catch this…and as we do it, we will hit some of those daily challenges as well.

To help us win the challenge, make a difference and give hope to little kids like Abraham…
