Several weeks ago, we were excited to announce that we have teamed up with DoBidder.com, a fundraising website that works with charities to raise money with an exciting auction format. Even better, last week we hosted our first auction! While the auction was a success, we could have done a better job advertising it. So we want to let you know a bit more about this partnership and how you can help impact our ministry.
The cool thing about DoBidder is it gives you an opportunity to purchase, at an extreme discount, items that you want and the money you spend goes to support a cause of your choice. There are some incredible opportunities for both consumers and charities, as it isn’t uncommon to win an auction for 80 percent off the retail price while still contributing significant amounts of money to a charity.
This Sunday, the 23rd, we will once again be hosting an auction, a beautiful Brazilian painting from Fortaleza. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the auction will go towards sending new Christians from our church to an “Encounter Retreat” where they will learn who they are in Christ and experience his love in a tangible way. We’ve seen many lives transformed through this retreat, it costs $70 per person and our goal is to send 6 people! Please consider signing up with DoBidder as there will be many opportunities to creatively give to missions through this website. We are excited to see how God will use DoBidder to bless the people we are working with and many other organizations as well!
Thank you for partnering with us to reach Brazil for Christ!! Isaiah and Erin
