Giving Tuesday, May 3 – An Opportunity to Help Killingsworth Home

killingsworthA message from Rev. Diane Moseley, Executive Director, Killingsworth Home:

Good afternoon friends and supporters of Killingsworth —

I’m writing today to ask a special favor from you.  It’s about a $10,000 possibility for the women of Killingsworth!!

Perhaps you have heard of the annual “local giving day” that is now being celebrated all over the country each year on the first Tuesday of May…..local communities are organizing 24-hours of philanthropy to support local nonprofit organizations.

Someone observed that people who are online constantly — shopping and texting and sending pictures — should be invited to become philanthropists online as well.  Check out this web site which will answer most all the questions you may have about it.     midlandsgives.org

In our area the Central Carolina Community Foundation is hosting the event and calling it Midlands Gives! It has other names in other communities.  They all have the goal of raising funds for local charities in 24 hours AND DOING IT ALL ONLINE.  Since we receive referrals from all over South Carolina we are asking people all over South Carolina to hop online and make a stretch donation to support the women of Killingsworth.

I am bold to ask because we have been given a $10,000 challenge match  and we have raised only a little more than half that in the past.  If we meet or exceed our goal of raising $10,000 in 24 hours, we will have $20,000 to support the women of Killingsworth.   So — double your pleasure in giving! Pretty good loaves and fishes! We can push $20 or more a long way!

So that’s what it is — and what I am writing about is to ask you to share this information with the folks at your church, in your Sunday School class, any group you may be a part of, and in your circle of friends.  Ask them to consider a gift for Killingsworth to be given online sometime between 00:01 AM and 11:59 PM on May 3   (next Tuesday). If someone is supportive but declines because they cannot “do computers”, then it seems like the missional thing to do would be to find a child or grandchild who eats/sleeps/breathes computer to help get it done.

The donation has to be made on the Midlands Gives web site to be counted toward the challenge. You can get to the right page at this link: Click here: Midlands Gives. The leaderboard at Midlands Gives will keep a running record of donations beginning thirty seconds after midnight on May 3.

Thank you for the generosity and support you have shown us in the past, and I hope you will consider helping with this possibility as well.
