So here is the deal. Hope Ministries is made up of an awesome group of people in our city who help the homeless every day of every year. They are dedicated to their purpose and devoted to the King. I’m not kidding!
One of the practical needs of homeless men, women, and children is the need for socks. So we have asked to be a part of a Pulse 101.7 “knock your socks off” campaign.
Sometime today look in your sock drawer. No, we don’t want your socks. They are too much a part of your life. But think about it – some people have zero socks. Zip. Nada. And we would like to help Hope Ministries grow a sock inventory and distribute them on our behalf – to people who really need them!
Between now and September 3rd, bring your brand new pairs of socks to the Pulse Studios at Fox Creek (the “Knock your socks off” box is inside the door). If you want to find a closer location to your home you can do so at HopeIowa.org.
Let’s join with this awesome Hope Ministries effort to collect and distribute 5000 pairs of new socks for homeless men, women and children right here in central Iowa!
Just following up on my interview with Nate this morning. What a cool way to partner together as a community. I asked Nate to send me the details so I could forward them to you!
– Dave from Pulse Mornings
My name is Nate Beaird, and I’m from Des Moines, IA. This year I’m turning 30, so I wanted to find a cause to get behind and do something different for my birthday this year. I made a video and posted it on the Facebook and Twitter accounts I set up. The video laid out my birthday wish, and directed them to my website, HappyBirthdayNate.com, where they can donate to World Vision as part of my project. 2,000 people (mostly children under the age of 5) die every DAY from Malaria, a completely preventable disease. Treated Mosquito nets can last up to 4 years, are washable, and can protect 2 children at a time. When 80% of a certain community uses these nets, the cases of Malaria drop by 50% in the first year. Although we’ve eradicated it here in the states, still over half the wold’s population is at risk. World Vision is on a mission to eradicating it by 2015. There’s two parts of my birthday wish;
I want to raise $300,000 to purchase 50,000 treated Mosquito nets to protect 100,000 lives from Malaria.
But I also want to find 10,000 people to be generous with their resources, generosity impacts both the giver and the receiver in incredible ways.
My birthday wish has spread all around the country, 30 of our 50 states have participated in donating for my birthday. It’s also gone world-wide, with 14 countries participating. The local TV News station has done a story on it as well as the local newspaper, not to mention blogs. So far 174+ people have donated $23,301 which will buy 3,884 nets and protect 7,768 lives!
I’m not a World Vision employee, I’m not a missionary, just a guy trying to encourage generosity in people while working to eradicate the largest human killing disease of all time.
As we take the time to ask you to pledge your support to Pulse 101.7FM during the month of April, we are excited about how Pulse is being used by God in our city. Your gift to Pulse 101.7 is important, and makes a far-reaching impact! These “In-Touch” principles have helped many givers get started, increase, and be incredibly blessed by their choice to give back to God. Thank God for His indescribable Gift!
1. In-Touch givers practice the SECRET principle. You don’t give to be patted on the back by others (Matthew 6:3-4).
2. In-Touch givers practice the FAITHFUL principle. You believe God is the supplier of all your resources – and you enjoy giving back to the One Who is blessing you. (Proverbs 3:9-10).
3. In-Touch givers practice the JOY principle. You know that generosity is good for your heart, life, and soul (2 Corinthians 9:7). And you want to honor God by separating yourself from some of your possessions.
4. In-Touch givers practice the OVERFLOW principle. You give generously out of your intense love for God and others (2 Corinthians 9:6), and it overflows from your grateful heart!
5. In-Touch givers practice the EXCITEMENT principle. You give expectantly, not merely offering money, but your heart of hope that God will multiply your gifts to bless others – and to bless Him. (2 Corinthians 9:10-15).
In his book The Treasure Principle Randy Alcorn says “You can’t take it with you, but you can send it on ahead!” Whether you give to a local mission like Pulse 101.7FM, a well-digging project in Africa, a hungry child in the Sudan, or your local church where you are fed the Word of God – your choice to give says you believe your giving heart really does matter to God. And that you are confident in the future reward of being with Him forever!
Start small and increase as God builds your faith.
You won’t believe what giving can do for your heart!
We pray you’ll include Pulse 101.7FM as a part of your giving choices. If so, share your story, connect with us and even make your pledge by clicking here! Thank you!
