Last chance to double your impact
The NetsforLife® Inspiration Fund Matching Gift Challenge ends in just a few days. This is your last chance to double your impact by supporting the distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, providing lifesaving training in malaria protection and raising awareness about the disease. Don't miss this final chance to double your impact and save hundreds of thousands of lives from sickness and death throughout an entire continent! As an example, the St Martin's EYC hosted a cake auction to benefit NetsforLife®, and families in the parish baked and donated cakes galore! The auction raised an amazing sum of $860, and the parish Mission & Outreach program added $200. With the ERD matching, $1720 will be donated to NetsforLife®. Think what your congregation can do, but don't wait to long to do it. The deadline for a matching gift is May 25.
