I hope you’re having a good afternoon I wanted to give you another update on our fundraising for The Prayer Page(TPP).
First I want to thank you for your patience regarding yesterday, as not everyone was able to enjoy all the services TPP offers due to our technical difficulties. Fortunately I’ve been able to replace my phone at no charge.
As well, after speaking with Verizon we went ahead and purchased the upgrades needed to help me with TPP. One thing they helped me with is a program that allows me to speak and have my words typed. This is a huge help for me with the current back problems that I am having. I am taking advantage of this program now and I can tell already it us a huge blessing. The total was $300, however they are running a promotion where we will receive a $100 rebate in the mail which brings the total down to $200.
I have to charge this amount to our Verizon account. $200 charge is a bit of a shock to our account, but I am not worried I know God will take care of us. Now that being said, in the past people have offered to support us financially.
Here is your opportunity.
We have set up a “YouCaring” account with the goal of raising $300 to upgrade our equipment. We set it up before we knew about the rebate that Verizon is gave us. I still want to keep the goal at $300 because we do have additional office expenses and which we could use the remaining $100. We use it for business cards which has helped many people, in addition to purchasing sympathy cards and encouragement cards. Once a year we do have an annual expense we have to pay to the government in the amount of $70 I have always paid this out of my own pocket and am willing to continue to do so, however I would like to give others the opportunity to donate and be a blessing to God’s work.
I understand this is a tough time of the year to be asking for donations. Please keep in mind that even small amounts help on Facebook all alone not including Twitter or Instagram we have over 480 people that follow us so let’s cut that number in half that would be 240 people if 240 people gave just $1 we would almost reach our goal if that same amount just gave $2 we would easily surpass our goal I think you get the idea. Any funds raised that exceed the $300 goal will be placed in a CD account with Navy Federal Credit Union to be used exclusively to take care of any future upgrades for the prayer page so we will not have this problem again in the future.
TPP has been in existence for over 3 years, and this is the first time in our history that we have solicited funds to help with our work. If we do not reach the goal, God's work will still continue, as I know God will still take care of us. I just want to extend this opportunity for you to be a part of what God is doing with TPP! 🙂
We started this year with about 250 people as part of TPP family. This morning between Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media we are over 800 strong! God has exciting plans for TPP, and we want to be ready for what God has for us in the future! If you are not able to help us financially that’s okay! You can still help! You still do two things for us! First pray that we can reach our financial goal, and second would you be willing to share this post with others so they might know about TPP, and as well they might be able to help us reach our goal! Once we reach our goal I will update everyone.
Thank you again for your time, have a safe weekend and God bless!🙂
