John Barry here, CEO of Jesus' Economy. It's that time of year: Christmas is wrapped up and you're thinking about donating once more before 2017 is over. Here are seven very good reasons to choose Jesus' Economy for year-end giving.
With Jesus' Economy, you can choose your passion and have 100% of your giving go where you designate. This means you can donate to a developing world project and 100% will go straight to the developing world, specifically for that project. Our Operations Fund is what makes all this possible. For year-end giving, consider fueling the movement of Jesus' Economy by giving to our Operations Fund.
We post all of our financials online; GuideStar gave us a Gold rating for transparency. We also connect you to the real stories of what your donations are doing in the field by posting reports from the field on our blog regularly and sending out annual reports.
We've developed technology that makes it possible for you to shop fair trade and give in the same place, in the same transaction. And that's just the beginning of the ways we're innovating to make it easy for you to empower others.
We're innovating to solve global poverty by using a new model and leveraging technology. We believe that the spiritual and physical health of a community are interwoven. That's why we create jobs, plant churches, and meet basic needs at the same time.
Currently, Jesus' Economy operates on an all-volunteer staff. You read that right. And my wife Kalene and I literally sold our house and nearly everything we own to further this movement. We will never ask you to do something we haven't done ourselves.
In Northeast India, we're bringing the gospel to unreached people groups, people who have never heard the name of Jesus before. In the same region, we're also meeting basic needs, such as clean water and literacy training. One of the most impoverished places in the world is being renewed through Jesus' love in word and deed.
Every time you give and shop with Jesus' Economy, you're being part of the solution to the problems our world is facing. You're joining a movement of people who have chosen this innovative solution and are collectively changing our world, for the better.
Jesus' Economy is nimble and innovative, resulting in a big impact per dollar. We're leveraging our interconnected world for the good of the global poor and unreached. And I want you to be a part of it.
We don't take a cut from your donations; we raise our Operations' costs separately from what you donate to the developing world. At this point, we also have an all-volunteer staff. That's how much we believe in this vision. For year-end giving, consider a donation to our Operations Fund.
The Operations Fund is the engine behind our Fair Trade Shop and pays for launching developing world projects. Every story you read about our work, every interaction you have with our website, and even the phone bill is paid by this Fund.
Make the world a better place: Donate to our Operations Fund.
The vision of Jesus' Economy is transforming lives around the world. Our Operations Fund makes this possible. The numbers say it all, as our 2015 overall stats show.
