1000 X 1000 X $1.00 – AID4AISA

I haven’t mentioned how we did on the $1 offering for the victims of the earthquake in China & the Typhoon in Myanmar. World Vision asked us to be a part of 1000 churches who who ask people for $1 for a total of 1000 to raise a million dollars for the victims of these tragedies.

Everyone thought this was a GREAT idea – just a buck!!!

Well we raised 2300 pretty painlessly! Actually it was 2347.23 (someone couldn’t come up w/ the extra ¢77)

One of the functions of a church is to give us opportunities to for love & good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24). I love opportunities like this.

Great job Journey.

BTW – if any of you outside of journey want to mail us a buck, we’ll make sure it gets to World Vision & thus to China & Myanmar

  1. A great supporter of World Vision is AIDtoCHILDREN.com.

    AIDtoCHILDREN.com is a dual-purpose site for building an English vocabulary and raising money for under privileged children in the most impoverished places around the world.

  2. Mail? What’s Mail?

    PayPal my friend. That way we save 42c in postage… actually we can bump up the PayPal donation to $1.42 and you get the extra cents, not the post office.

    Cheers,
    Matt

  3. More Often!

    Since it was so painless, we (I) would love to participate more in things like this. Heck, I can spare more than a buck evey Sunday for radical things like this and it sure doesn’t hurt my wife and I from our tithe or Journey up. I love to see the numbers journey turns up after these things. $1300 more than necessary. It kinda makes journey what it is, huh?
