Fearing The Big Picture

By: Heather Wilson on | Comments: 0
A couple years ago when the elections were happening, I went through a period of time where I felt depressed every time I went on Facebook or watched the news. It felt like no option was a good option and all there was, was bad news and accusations on every side of the coin. It caused me to start living in fear. Fear of the future, fear for my children, fear for my freedoms.

At that time I felt like I heard God say to me “Why are you trying to look at the big picture? Only I can see the big picture. I put you exactly where I want  you and I’m going to use you there. You don’t have to worry about everybody else and what they’re doing. You just worry about what I have for you to do.”

Well, I knew that GiveSendGo was something that God had for me to do, and it was amazing to see my perspective change as I started looking at closely at the Givers, Senders and Goers using the site.  I started to notice exactly what GiveSendGo was being used for.  Ordinary people all over the world making a difference. They were raising money to impact their communities, their churches, their neighbors and friends, they didn’t let worry about world politics or how it was all going to end stop them from doing what God was calling them to do in the moment, and they were making a difference. 

This year already on GiveSendGo, we have seen thousands of people utilizing our platform to spread the Hope of Jesus.  There is good being done in the world. There is hope being shared, despite what we hear in the media.  It is happening when people like you and I, in our own little circles of life, decided to step out and make a difference. Sometimes that calls for raising money to meet a physical need, so Hope can be shared, such as with these few campaigns : 

Here is Emily on an incredibly life changing journey. So many of her friends and family who could not be the one to "Go" right now are supporting her, many with recurring monthly donations: https://www.givesendgo.com/fromsactogreece

Here is a campaign raising money for a family dealing with a tragic death, and the body of Christ joined in to raise over $20,000. https://www.givesendgo.com/NickDehmer

Or this campaign for a Christian ministry start up wanting to provide assistance to families who would like Christian education for their children. https://www.givesendgo.com/dollarperchristian

It was hard to pick just a few.  There are hundreds more campaigns like these on GSG, and it is so exciting to join in and be used to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a world needing a little Help and Hope.  

Check us out today and be a part of making a difference where you are planted.

Billy Graham

?Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don?t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.? - Billy Graham

Today Billy Graham is standing before Jesus. Bowing, Singing, Laughing, I can only imagine. 

Listen to this song with us as we imagine the party that is happening in heaven today!  As Jesus hugs Billy and says "Well done my good and faithful servant."  Let it spur us on to make the most of the life we have been given. To embolden us to use every opportunity to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ!   I can only imagine!

The GiveSendGo difference

By: GiveSendGo on | Comments: 0
As the #1 free Christian crowdfunding site, it is vital that you know how we are different from other crowdfunding platforms.

We are FREE. We charge no money to use our platform. We believe you should be able to keep all the money you raise. GSG is powered by voluntary donations from Givers and Goers. Other crowdfunding sites take between 5%-10% of the money raised by a campaign.

Each month, we give 10% of the donations given to GSG back to active campaigns on our site. We’re the first crowdfunding site that believes so much in what you’re doing that we put our money where our mouth is. We love being Givers!

The most valuable currency is God’s love. Only God can meet the deepest needs of each heart. That’s why we’re grateful to have individuals and organizations dedicated to praying over our campaigns. We pray for eternal results because those are ultimately the only outcomes that matter. The God we serve will ALWAYS be bigger than money.

On GSG, Christians can choose to raise funds for short or long-term campaigns. GiveSendGo allows Goers to set up their campaign to receive monthly recurring donations from their Givers. Traveling across the country and world to share God’s love just got easier.

Outside the obvious funding for mission trips, GSG also can be used to raise funds for medical expenses, business ventures, personal needs, churches, nonprofits, ministries or any “God Adventure” you embark on. Whether you’re a Giver, Sender or Goer, you can be used by God to be a difference maker!
