Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. And of course, don’t forget Giving Tuesday. #GivingTuesday
Tuesday December 3rd, 2019 is a day when millions of people around the glove give to non-profits, knowing their dollars will make a great difference.
For YFC #GivingTuesday means #LivingTuesday.
Why LIVING Tuesday? Because our youth are in crisis. 34.7% of children in Lebanon city live below the poverty line. Tuesday is just another day to many, but for us, it is another day we get to give our youth tools to live for Jesus. Help us make #LivingTuesday the first day of the rest of their lives!
When you DONATE to True Life Youth Ministries, your dollars go right to work to:
CHANGE A LIFE. SAVE A LIFE #LivingTuesday
In 2018, we held our first ever #GivingTuesday campaign and raised $16,476 in one day to support True Life Youth Ministries’ programs working with youth in the city of Lebanon. Almost 25% of our entire year-end goal was raised! This year we are looking to do the same but need your help!
Can you give towards our Community Matching Fund to inspire others to give on #GivingTuesday? This year’s #GivingTuesday goal is $18,000 and we need your help. We’d like to raise $9,000 in business sponsorship towards matching funds to help us reach our goal. Will you give into this Community Matching Pool?
We recently had the high school students fill out updated information for our records. About 15 high school students didn’t know their current address. This is a result of how often they move. Some were visibly embarrassed. Three students did not have a permanent address because they were couch surfing – staying with various friends or family. As you can imagine a lack of consistent housing causes trauma. It’s no wonder many kids consider True Life Youth Ministries their home and safe place.
