Thirty-five years ago I developed a desire to form an organization called Donors 4 Jesus. The purpose was to encourage people to donate blood to alleviate any shortages that might be endangering people's lives as well as provide a vehicle for Christians to serve their fellow men in a tangible way that would bring glory to Christ. The slogan I arrived at is "He gave His all for us; can we give some for Him?" Another motto is "we have the right to bare arms." I believe that blood donors are the silent heroes. I think recognition should be given when sacrifices such as enduring the discomfort and inconvenience of donating are made. However, I wanted the credit to go mostly to the Lord. Unfortunately, in the current world we live in, devout Christians are known more for their protests against abortion, homosexuality, and the teaching of evolution than their love and service to mankind. I personally have been in that fight for twelve years through authoring books and producing movies. We are called to do battle for the kingdom, but we are also called to love. Donating blood seems to be an excellent way to manifest that love and perhaps initiate some positive conversations about the Lord.
I've designed a website to allow people to keep track of their contributions and those we Christians are making as a group to save lives. My desire is that the participants would buy (at cost) t-shirts that will show they are donating for Jesus so they are witnessing without opening their mouth when they go to the blood bank or anywhere in public. I will also alert blood banks to the existence of my organization and place at their disposal a means of sending out emails with notice of blood shortages to everyone who registers for their blood bank.
What We Need & What You Get
I'd like to raise $20,000 but I can get the job done for less than half of that. I'd prefer to have some extra money to throw at enhancing the quality and to reward our actors and crew with a little extra cash. The Donors 4 Jesus ministry will not require any money. I am footing the bill for the website and domain and contributing my labor to operate it. So no funds will be solicited to operate Donors 4 Jesus. However to shoot the movie Right to Bare Arms, which includes within its Christian romance plot, a fictional story of the launching of Donors 4 Jesus, I need some funds. My wish is not to ask for a handout but to provide viewers and supporters with a chance to preorder their DVD or VOD copy of this movie, which will shoot in August of this year and hopefully be available around December. If you donate $15 you qualify for a copy. $20 gets you a copy and another movie that I produced (DVDs while supplies last or VOD). $30 gets you a copy plus access to three Sword of the Spirit Publishing VOD offerings of your choice. $100 gets all the perks of the $30 donation plus we will honor you at one of our meals and pray for you as well as include your name in the special thanks section of the movie credits. $1000 gives you all of the $100 perks plus Executive Producer credit in the movie and access to all Sword of the Spirit VOD offerings.
