#GivingTuesday 2015: GIVING Opportunity, Relationships, Training, Resources, and Health & Safety

As the holiday season draws nearer each day, we would like to take the month of November to tell you–our team leaders, volunteers, supporters, and friends–more about the heartbeat of UMVIM, SEJ. If you're not already, we hope you will follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and here on our blog as we launch our 2015 #GivingTuesday campaign. If you're not familiar with this day, #GivingTuesday is a new movement that seeks grassroots support of non-profits and worthy causes. It's not only about refocusing holiday spending, but it is also a powerful way to raise awareness and resources for our organization. Our ministry is not dependent upon United Methodist apportionments, but rather grants and donations. We simply cannot do what we do without your support. 

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 all month long! Don't hesitate to contact Landon Taylor, Church Relations, at landon_taylor@umvim.org if you have any questions at all. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come!
