Tom's birthday pledge to World Renew

Birthday Pledge 2017

******UPDATE*****
Thanks to your generosity, we've reached our goal of $3,000 with over 3 weeks to spare before year-end!! We're in process of securing additional matching dollars to extend our goal to $5,000! Will you help us raise a little more through year-end? Every dollar will now be matched up to $5,000! Thanks so much for your generosity!!
***********************

2017 - it's been a year. Hurricanes Irma, Harvey, & Maria. The flooding, ethnic cleansing, and refugee crisis in Myanmar/Bangladesh. The fires in California. Earthquakes in Mexico. And there's the ongoing refugee crisis, most notably in Syria, possibly the largest humanitarian crisis of our time. 1,000's upon 1000's dead. Tons of need. It's felt overwhelming to me, and I'm betting to you, too.

Today (November 14) is my birthday, and I haven't really celebrated in over a decade, as it's just another day, right? :)

I decided to finally celebrate this year. And I'm hoping you'll celebrate with me.

I've pledged my birthday to raise money for World Renew, a fantastic organization that provides disaster relief, refugee crisis relief, and works to rebuild and alleviate poverty in these areas long after others may have left. You can find more info about them at worldrenew.net.

Here's the best part: in honor of one of my last birthday's in the 30's, my company, Money Concepts - The Planning Firm, is going to match every dollar you donate up to $3,000 (update: we're securing add'l matching dollars up to $5,000)!

And since World Renew also has some matching programs going on, some of my matching dollars will get matched again!! $10 may turn into $30. $25 into $75.

Honestly, I don't care if it's in honor of my birthday or not--either way I would love for you to consider even a small donation to World Renew to help bring relief and rebuilding to some of the most disaster and war-torn areas in the world. Please help me do a small part for some of the "least of these" (Matt 25:40, James 2:15-16, 1 John 3:17, etc).

Once the campaign is finished (end of the year or sooner), I will show the matching donation with a screenshot of the matched funds.

Thanks for helping me celebrate!
- Tom
