Good Giving Goal

Our GoodGiving Campaign is over on December 31st.  We have raised  $ 1,052 online so far during the challenge, but we hoped for at least $6,000.  Offline another $2,615 has been given in checks or pledges. That makes a total of $3,667 raised out of $6,000 needed.

We have matching challenges available from the Blue Grass Community Foundation during the last week that
will open a door to fulfill our goal for the 10 students. Wednesday, December 27 - a $5,000 match pool is available first come, first matched on all gifts up to $500.  10 cents on the dollar. It will begin at  8 am and run until it is exhausted.

Also, the 5 nonprofits that raise the most money between 8 am and 6 pm on Friday, December 29th will get $1,000 added  to their cash totals.  

Our giving page is open for your giving  right now but please give on Wednesday, December 27th or Friday, December 29th, when your dollar will go farther because of matching funds that are available.

Matt Jaycob is 5 years old and is in Kindergarten class. He has a brother who studies in the nearest public school and a sister who passed away when she was only 5 years old due to a rare illness. Matt Jaycob lives with his family of four in a small house that has no water connection. His family also lives with one more family. All in all, they are about ten living in one small house with no bedrooms. Matt Jaycob gets water from the nearest watering station which cost $.06 (USD) for 10 pails of water. The family would do this everyday since they need water for bathing, washing, cooking, and cleaning. Matt Jaycob's parents are hoping for a sponsor to support Matt's education.
You can sponsor him for $500 a year  Sponsor Matt 
You can spread the payments out  to give $42 monthly.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. 

Support Filipino Children

I am getting excited about our GoodGiving Challenge especially our Hoops for Children events that will be at Lexington Chinese Christian Church and Morehead United Methodist Church on Saturday, December 2nd from 11 to 3 pm. I hope you will bring your children and help them get pledges from their friends and neighbors to do feats to raise money for sponsorship of our new children in Manila, Philippines.  You can even eat hotdogs for lunch there. 

We have been helping with a feeding program there for several years, but now we are actually sponsoring 10 children in a very poor area of Manila.

If you can't come that day, you can still do feats for pledges and give the money on our GoodGiving Fundraising page until December 31st.  Ellie my granddaughter did her feats early since she cannot come to  Hoops for Children. She raised $25 and had a lot of fun. She ran for a minute on our treadmill and enjoyed the basket toss.

The giving page will not be alive until 9am on Tuesday, November 28th. Be one of the first to give online for the challenge this year.
