#GivingTuesday 2015: GIVING Health & Safety

GIVING Health & Safety by Providing Training Resources The UMVIM, SEJ Team Leader Handbook is full of resources to make sure your team stays healthy and safe while traveling. From clean water advice and first aid suggestions to work area precautions, we are here to make sure your time serving isn’t hindered from a preventable health issue! (But if something does happen, and accidents certainly do, thank goodness for the UMVIM, SEJ insurance program!)

GIVING Health & Safety through our Insurance Policies Taking advantage of the UMVIM, SEJ supplemental health insurance program is one of the most prudent decisions a team can make for themselves. While all UMVIM projects are safe, working on the mission field can carry with it some inherent risks. UMVIM insurance is provided at a small cost to teams and individuals serving in the mission field, regardless of denominational affiliation. Not only does it ensure medical care should the need arise, but it also covers things like emergency reunions, trip interruption, and even loss of baggage.

This year #GivingTuesday falls on December 1st, taking place after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. On December 1, 2015, United Methodist will join hands to support the work of Advance projects and missionaries to transform lives on #GivingTuesday. Every gift made online through The Advance on this day will be matched up to $1 million. (A maximum of $2,500 per individual gift to a project will be dispersed as matching funds. A project may receive a maximum of $25,000 in matching funds.) UMVIM, SEJ is Advance #901875.

Donations will start matching at midnight, CST on December 1, but in the meantime, please enjoy learning more about the heartbeat of our ministry in the days leading up to the big event! Don't hesitate to contact Landon Taylor, Church Relations, at 
landon_taylor@umvim.org if you have any questions at all.
