Being in the USA for the month of November has been wonderful. Sweet times with family, friends and supporters. Activities that have refreshed our bodies and minds. Access to great internet and phone service so we can have heart-to-heart chats with cherished people in our lives we can’t normally reach out to.
But I (Cathy) must admit that the barrage of commercial ads coming from every direction has hit me hard. Culture shock to the MAX! And then I stumbled upon a sweet little video that has encouraged me greatly…
Giving Tuesday was organized with this thought in mind: “We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.”
Mark and I are glad that we’re part of a ministry that places giving at the heart of all we do, all year long….giving opportunities for educators to excel in their field, teaching them about the special position they have as influencers, and showing both teachers and students the mysteries and wonders of God’s Word.
