You’ve hit the donate button. And as technology works on the backend to process your gift, perhaps you’re wondering, “What happens next?”
Or maybe you’re reading this wondering, “If I decide to make a gift to Kingdom Workers, how can I know that my gift is going to make a real difference?”
Whatever your reasoning for clicking on this blog, I’m glad you’re here.
Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It’s nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And while those days offer great deals and opportunities to “treat yourself,” Giving Tuesday is a day when credit card swipes and cash payments go towards a larger purpose—supporting the life-changing work of nonprofits like Kingdom Workers.
Which leads me to the first thing we love about Giving Tuesday here at Kingdom Workers...
Today, in honor of World Refugee Day, we are sharing a select number of stories about the refugee experience. These have been chosen by Alicia Cortright, South Sudan Field Manager, and Daya Batim Moses, South Sudan Field Coordinator. Some of the books are best to read with your young child, and others are ones best saved for adults.
According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, there are 1.5 million charities, nonprofits, private foundations, etc. in the United States. There’s no shortage of organizations that are supporting the causes you care about.
But how do you decide who to support? How do you find your perfect nonprofit match? And for those of us who are Christian—how do you know if a nonprofit is really working to share the gospel message?
Giving isn’t meant to be complicated.
But it often feels that way. Especially when money is tight.
I used to think, “There’s no way I can give right now. I’m not ready. It’s great that the one older woman in the Bible was strong enough to give everything she had. But I don’t think God wants me to be without housing or food at 22 because of how much I am giving.”
So, I didn’t give.
Later I realized my idea of giving was all wrong.
