Money Well Spent
Mike Schrage, Executive Director
Each year after Thanksgiving we encourage our friends to devote a special gift to GNPI on Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a national giving day which prompted people around the world to give $168 million to charity last year. Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
It seems like a big number until you see the next statistic. Giving Tuesday follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These two retail “holidays” generate about $7 billion.
Seven billion. That’s approximately the number of people in our world. Half of them are unreached. Imagine if we put a little of our shopping money into reaching the lost. What would the impact be?
We need $5,200 every day to operate the global network of GNPI. I’d love to ask our friends to fund one of those days through Giving Tuesday. Will you consider making a Giving Tuesday contribution right now to reach people with the Gospel? Our research shows that every dollar you give provides 43 people with a chance to hear about Jesus.
That’s money well spent!
