Several weeks ago I posted about how our IMPACT Student Ministry is going to partner with 1MISSION to build a home for a family in Mexico. Good News – our online campaign page is now live!
We’ve been working the past several weeks raising funds through our Upwards Basketball Concession stand. We missed one week due to snow, but had 7 Saturdays where we sold various concession items. Our Upward families were very generous as they purchased items and we are almost half-way to our goal!
Now that the campaign page is live, we can continue to work toward the goal of $4,000 to provide a home for the Ortiz Barajas Family in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora Mexico.
You can read more about the family and what they have done to position themselves to build a safe home for themselves.
But you may be asking, “Now what?” Great question! Here’s what you can do:
1) Donate! Seems simple, but the campaign page is designed to allow people to go online and give toward our family. 100% of the funds given go to the project and any size gift is helpful.
2) Share the Link to the Campaign Page! Let people know about our project by sharing the link through social media. Get the word out to your friends and give them the opportunity to partner with us as we partner with 1MISSION.
3) Grab Some Friends and Do Something! We did a concession stand. You can donate your birthday and have people give money to 1MISSION instead of buying gifts for you. Wash cars. Offer to babysit for someone. Every amount given moves us toward our goal.
We are excited about partnering with 1MISSION to build a home. Help us reach our goal and provide a safe home for a family while we demonstrate God’s love.
