New year, same crowdfunding platform…or is it?
While GiveSendGo is the same Christ following, freedom loving, justice seeking platform, we have some New Year's resolutions! We took a look at our platform’s yearly analytics - from givers, to senders, to go-ers. We were blown away at how God is growing and using GiveSendGo to share hope to the world.
We’ve seen this through giving a voice to someone whose campaign was taken down on another site. When society told them their voice doesn’t matter because it's different from their own, they chose to silence it.
And don’t get me started on the miraculous stories from our prayer partner ministry. We could talk about it all day! God, through His divine intervention, uses those phone calls to do miracles! There’s one that still makes me tear up that I’ll briefly share. I won’t go into it fullly, but we had one call that God used to stop a suicide that was about to happen right at the time of the phone call. This person had lost all hope and had a gun in their hand. God created this person and He loves His children! So, God led our Prayer Team to call them at the right place at the right time to let that very special person know He see’s them, hears them and is mourning with them. And from that phone call and God’s love toward that person, they were able to see a glimmer of hope.
Jesus! You have blessed our company SO much! Use us to bless your kingdom more. Speak, your servants are listening!
God calls us to be generous. If we’re going to help lead a movement of generosity, freedom, and becoming more Christ-like, then we need to read the Bible and follow Jesus’ example of a what a true leader is.
Jesus, our shepherd, the leader who leaves the 99 for the one, served his people. Day and night he served with humility, healed the sick, and performed miracle upon miracle. Jesus didn’t ride on the back of a horse when he arrived in Jerusalem. He CHOSE a donkey, a symbol of peace and humility, over a horse which often in the Bible had relations to kings and war. He CHOSE to wash the feet of his disciples, including Judas who Jesus knew would soon betray him. There are countless examples of Jesus being God’s humble servant. We should want to be more like Jesus.
This year GiveSendGo wants to serve every campaign on our website. We want to make the experience even more easy to understand, quick to set up, and reliable. We want to be a site you can trust. This is something we are constantly trying to improve. With that being said, we do have an announcement about this upcoming year we’re very excited to share! Starting Monday, January 2, 2023, GiveSendGo is lowering our processing rate to 2.7% + 30cents for new donations to USA based campaigns.
Thank you Jesus for all that you are doing and continue to do with GiveSendGo. We would also like to thank all of our GiveSendGo users for standing with us through thick and thin! Have a happy New Year everyone!
