Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday was started a few years ago as a campaign to encourage charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on December 3, 2019, so please mark your calendar and remember us on this international day of giving!
18ten is committed to covering specific start-up costs associated with The Oasis Academy. With gifts raised to date, we have covered the cost of kitchen supplies and half of the textbooks the school will need, but the following needs still remain:
Therefore, we have prayerfully set a big goal for this year’s “day of giving”: $36,000!
To help us reach this goal by December 3, we ask you to consider participating in the following ways:
Prayer. We have already seen so many of your prayers answered throughout this process of transitioning the before/after school ministry into an official school. Would you commit to praying throughout November that by December 3rd, we will have reached or surpassed our goal?
Please like and share our posts on Facebook and/or Twitter! If even one of your Facebook friends becomes interested in what we are doing, your effort would be worth it!
Contribute to our Giving Tuesday Fund.
If you already partner financially with us, we would be honored if you would prayerfully consider making an extra gift to this fund. If your timeline for end-of-year giving is set up for the month of December, we totally understand and will keep you posted on our needs at that time. However, if you are able to advance your end-of-year gift to the month of November to help us reach our Giving Tuesday goal, that would be our preference. An early gift would help us kick-start the furnishing process of The Oasis Academy so that the school is “student-ready” as soon as possible!
Thank you so much for your consideration and support. God bless you!
