Today is GivingTuesday!

Welcome to GivingTuesday! Today marks the tenth anniversary of a global movement designed to make a monumental impact in the lives of people who need it most: the sick, neglected, and oppressed. Victims of abuse, human trafficking, and slavery. Those living in extreme poverty and war-torn areas. People desperate for food, shelter, clean water, education, or work opportunities. Researchers trying to cure a multitude of debilitating diseases. And protectors of our environment and endangered animals. 

GivingTuesday may only take place one day a year, but its waves of impact ripple for years to come. According to GivingTuesday.com, “It’s not just one day – this is a global social movement that’s working every day to fuel more generosity in service to building a more just and equitable world.”

Good, decent nonprofits of every type will ask you to choose them on this GivingTuesday. LiveBeyond is among them. We invite you to join us in helping people rise from the ashes of poverty and despair. 

Why LiveBeyond?

When you give to LiveBeyond, you are giving to a faith-based organization that:

 

– Is trustworthy.

– Uses your funds to provide food, clean water, healthcare, and education.

– Provides an annual impact report showing how your funds were used and the life-changing impact they made.

– Prayerfully seeks the Lord’s guidance when stewarding funds and considering projects and programs.

– Has made significant, verifiable advancements in improving the quality of life in the communities we serve.

 

The GivingTuesday website says, “All around the world, we are joining forces and leaning on each other – and this generosity tells us that we will achieve the better, more just world that we all seek.”

LiveBeyond agrees, and humbly asks you to join us in supporting our communities in the impoverished, harsh environments of Haiti and Israel, where violence, and political and civil unrest run rampant. 

What Our Donors Make Possible

In Thomazeau, Haiti, LiveBeyond’s school recently added a 12th grade and provides students, teachers, and staff with two meals a day on school days. Children can attend class knowing their school is protected by a barbed wire fence and security guards. Thomazeau also has a Johnny’s Kids program that provides education, meals, and physical therapy to children with disabilities. Imagine the joy of a child who received therapy and is now able to walk because of your GivingTuesday donation! To those on the receiving end, your donation is a life-changing blessing beyond anything you can imagine.

On Israel’s West Bank, just outside Jerusalem, the violence recently intensified as the area was officially declared a war zone last month. Our LiveBeyond community needs help more than ever. With donor funds, we have established a Johnny’s Kids program in which children with disabilities can attend school and receive the physical and speech therapy they need. Like their peers in Haiti, children in the Johnny’s Kids program and LiveBeyond School are provided with daily meals in addition to an excellent education. Expectant mothers in our Israel community receive the maternal care necessary to boost their chances of delivering healthy babies, and moms in the Johnny’s Kids program were treated to a special day out this year so they could take a much-needed break.  

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We invite you to visit the LiveBeyond website and download our Impact Report to see how our donor-funded programs resulted in reduced infant, child, and maternal mortality rates, clean water available to 200,000 people, more than 15,000 meals dispersed per week, and healthcare available to everyone in our communities.

Thank You For Your Support

We are grateful to all those who have supported these communities in Haiti and Israel with prayer and funding. On this GivingTuesday and every day, we hope you’ll join us in continuing the fight against poverty and oppression.
