At this point, every single person around the world has been affected in some way by COVID-19. Whether you’re working from home while trying to homeschool your kids, you’re caring for an infected family member or yourself, you’ve lost your job, or you’re just missing being able to stroll aimlessly around the grocery store, you have been impacted.
During this time of social distancing, we must try to come together in new ways. One way the WMU Foundation is doing this is by participating in Giving Tuesday Now, a global day of giving and unity, on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.
Giving Tuesday Now is an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Unemployment rates are higher than ever, healthcare workers are in desperate need of more supplies, several churches need more updated technology to stream their services online, and people all over the world are struggling.
How can you help?
Give #fromtheHEART when you support the WMU HEART Fund on Giving Tuesday Now to provide the relief they’ll need soon. We’ll all be recovering from the coronavirus pandemic for quite some time. Your gifts to the HEART Fund now help to ensure the WMU Foundation has the funds to support the practical needs of churches and ministries while providing them the opportunity to focus on sharing the gospel without worrying about their financial resources.
The WMU Foundation needs your help to reach our Giving Tuesday Now goal of raising $10,000. We have two generous donors who will match all gifts up to $2,000, which will help get us even closer to our goal. For example, when you give $50, it will become $100, a $100 gift becomes $200, a $250 gift becomes $500, and so on, up to the $2,000 match, so your gift could have double the impact!
The HEART Fund was created so we can quickly respond when disaster strikes. It offers a way for us to provide relief and rebuilding efforts while ministering to those on the frontlines. We know we will have HEART Fund grant applications as people respond and provide relief after the coronavirus, and we want to be ready when those come.
This is an unprecedented time in all of our lives, but we are all in this together. Join us on Tuesday, May 5, as we give #fromtheHEART and work to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.
