Tuesday Morning (Giving Tuesday)
I have some breaking news that will help Mercy Chefs feed more families. See below. --Gary
Yesterday, I heard from a dear friend of Mercy Chefs who offered to extend a special $50,000 GIVING TUESDAY MATCHING CHALLENGE.
The call came as quite a surprise. This friend has offered match DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR every donation we receive TODAY up to the $50,000 total.
We've never had a matching challenge gift like this in Mercy Chefs' history. But here's my challenge...
This $50,000 matching challenge applies ONLY to contributions made TODAY on Giving Tuesday!
I'm asking for your help to meet this challenge... Will you prayerfully consider helping Mercy Chefs on Giving Tuesday knowing that every dollar you donate will be DOUBLED by this special Giving Tuesday matching challenge? Go here to make your gift directly to Mercy Chefs:
+ + The needs have been extraordinary...
Meeting this challenge would be a great blessing. The needs this year have been extraordinary -- often exceeding our financial support. For example, we volunteered to help at the border and three months later, we were still serving meals to hurting moms and children. When we arrived in Florida after the tragic condo collapse, we had no idea that Mercy Chefs would be asked to stay an entire month as the sole provider of meals for the hundreds of search and rescue workers.
Then Ida hit. After providing over 200,000 meals, we've returned twice -- most recently this past Thanksgiving as we provided 8,500 holiday meals to disaster victims who may have gone without a holiday celebration if it weren't for the generous support of friends like you.
That's why this unexpected $50,000 Matching Challenge is such a blessing. But we have to raise $50,000 today to release the full $50,000 challenge gift.
Can I count on you today? Please ask the Lord how you can help. Then, go here to make your gift.
Finally, thank you so much for your faithfulness and your support.
Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
