This summer, we challenge you to do something sacrificial and beautiful for Jesus.
There is a fantastic story in the Bible about a woman interrupting a meal Jesus was eating and pouring a jar of expensive perfume over his feet (Matthew 26:10). Her act was sacrificial and it was public. And Jesus said it was beautiful. This summer, we challenge you to do something sacrificial and public and beautiful for Jesus. And in doing so, children who are hungry, displaced and hurting because of war will get to experience God’s love.
How it works.
Decide on your fundraising idea.
It could be something simple like holding a bake sale, opening a lemonade stand or something challenging like completing a marathon. No idea is too crazy!
Create your fundraising page.
Setting up a page so friends can quickly and easily give to your campaign is really simple. All you have to do is upload a photo, set your goal, share what you’re doing and why. Running a lemonade stand? Just ask your customers to donate directly to your page!Setup Now

There are so many things you can do to raise money.
Need a little inspiration to get you started? These are some of our favourite campaigns we’ve seen so far.
Donate your birthday this summer like Stevie did. He raised $1,400 for kids affected by war in the Middle East.
Run a lemonade stand like Daynee, Corson and Calynn did, raising $278 for Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar.
Paddle a kayak for 8 miles like Scott and his wife who raised $620 to provide relief supplies in the Middle East.
Ride a motorbike 1000 miles like Rikav who raised $2,007 to deliver food to hungry Rohingya families.
Dress like Where’s Waldo on your vacation like Laura did, raising $1,401 for kids in Southeast Asia.
Hold a bake sale like Kerthana and Chiara did to raise $1,990 so other kids displaced by war could go to school.
From little ideas, transformation grows.
Your decision to do something beautiful this summer is love in action that will change the story for children growing up in conflict zones around the world.
and you can provide trauma counselling to a child in an ISIS-affected community.
and you can train a local health worker to care for sick children in Myanmar.
and you can keep a child in a conflict affected area of Myanmar in school.
and you can feed 10 families with little access to food in Yemen for a month.
and you can provide infant nutrition packs to 10 mothers in Bangladesh.
and you can fully fund a clinic treating sick kids in Myanmar for a month.
