Life-Changing Easter Meal – Just $2.59
Easter is just a few short weeks away and the Union Gospel Mission needs your help. The Mission will be providing over 41,900 hot meals and other life-changing services to hungry, hurting and homeless men, women and children in the Greater Vancouver area during the next few weeks.
The Union Gospel Mission has been helping the less fortunate since 1940. They are an organization that I support and I’m asking you to join me in helping to feed the hungry this Easter. A complete meal cost just $2.59. This is an amount I believe we can all afford.
I Will Match Your Donation
I was wondering how I could help the Mission more this Easter and I’ve came up with an evil plan. I will match every dollar donated by the John Chow dot Com community up to a maximum of $500.00. Simply make a donation at UGM’s online donation page, then email me a copy of the email receipt. Feel free to leave a comment about your donation as well. For tax reasons, some readers in the US may want to donate to Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. That is fine; I will match donations to them as well.
This is the evil part of the plan: all readers making donations will be recognized in a blog post this Friday. If you have a website or blog, I will link to it. I grew up in the Downtown Eastside, the poorest neighborhood in Canada. I did not come from money. I am where I am today because I know that in order to receive any blessings in life, you must first give.
April 8 is just around the corner. The meals and other services we provide can be the start of a new life and new beginning for those in need. Let’s show the Union Gospel Mission that the John Chow dot Com community cares.
*Update – If you wishes to make a donation using PayPal, you may do so by sending the funds to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add it all together and write the UGM a check for the total amount.
