An Encouraging Word

Giving Tuesday

Posted on

Would you like to help a child in Haiti through FOCAS Ministries? I normally will not use our blog spot to promote a giving opportunity; but, today, Dec 2nd, is nationally unique. We are coming out of a month of giving thanks and have entered a month that is traditionally filled with giving gifts and good cheer. No doubt, you are thoughtfully thinking about who you should give to after clearing such hurdles as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today, there is a national spot light on Giving and it’s reflected in a concept called Giving Tuesday. It is a counter cultural response to Black Friday. Consider the following about GivingTuesday.

  • In 2013, the movement garnered 300 million impressions on Facebook.
  • The #GivingTuesday hashtag reached 2 billion people and was tweeted as much as 700 times/minute, resulting in national and international trending.
  • The average online gift in 2013 was $140.05, a 40% increase over 2012.

Today, December 2, you can prayerfully join the worldwide movement and make your donation at www.focas-us.org to help our children in Haiti.  Thanks for the consideration!

Merry Christmas!!

Scott Bowers - Executive Director
