Good News to the Poor Gemstone Giveaway - Building a Self Sustaining Orphanage
We come to the last prize of this whole giveaway fundraising event. There are only 2 days left in the giveaway.
Our goal was $10,000, we've so far raised just over $3000. In a way, that's fantastic. That's more than we had, and yet, if you could help us push through, tell this story as many times as you can in the next 2 days we still have a chance of reaching our goal. We just need to reach more people. If 700 people give just $10 each we can make our goal. How many of you have at least that many friends on facebook or followers on Twitter?
The good news is, we have so many great prizes, your odds of winning something are actually incredible right now. Don't let that stop you from telling your friends though since every tweet or share gives you yet another entry.
Today's prize is one of the best, actually, there are 2.
The first might just actually save your life and the lives of people around you. Of all the prizes we've offered this week this on may have the most long term value.
Good News to the Poor is the ministry started by Ken Blue, who happens to be Aaron's dad. When we were just starting out they were the parent non-profit for The Charis Project.
We have to offer today as our first prize the a package of teaching materials developed my Ken over his several years of ministry. They include a cd set of his teaching series titled Welcome Home and 2 books, Authority to Heal, and Healing Spiritual Abuse-How to Break Free from Bad Church Experiences. These best selling books have been reprinted dozens of times in at least as many languages. They could change your life.
The second prize has also been donated by Good News to the Poor.
The winner will receive their choice of 1 of these gemstones or pendant. These gemstones are high quality, fair traded and the cutting of them employees family in Thailand who are being trained in business management by ClearCut Incorporated. For the first time they are learning the whole business of gem cutting, rather than just one single aspect in an assembly line that they repeat over and over again for their entire lives.
You can choose one of the loose stones or pairs, to have set yourself, or the silver pendant with the giant amethyst hanging off of it. They range in value from $50 - $70.
All donors are eligible to win the gemstone prize. Even if all you can afford is $5-10 that still counts. One hundred people donating $10 works out to way more in the end than 1 in 100 donating $50. (If I had a dollar for all of my page views last month I wouldn't need to hold this fundraiser. hint hint. :)
All donors and everyone spreading the word on twitter through the hashtag #thecharisproject, or sharing on facebook by tagging The Charis Project are eligible to win the books and CD set.
Winners will be chosen at random from all entries after the contest closes shortly before midnight on Saturday, September 10, 2011.
