Syrian Christians facing a modern genocide in the Middle East have been barred entry into the United States, but simply by hosting a giving party, you and your friends can help save lives. Mercury One started its Nazarene Fund to provide relief efforts and find safe haven for those Christians. Early in the campaign, one disabled U.S. veteran recognized the urgency of the situation and donated his entire life savings: $37.32.
It was a clarion call for American Christians, and propelled donors to more than double the fund’s original $10 million goal. Glenn Beck, Mercury One founder and Nazarene Fund organizer, called for his millions of listeners to answer the call and match that veteran’s contribution. Read more about the Nazarene Fund, and give a gift this season that could mean the difference between life and death for an actual human being in the Middle East. Challenge your friends to do the same, and host a #MATCH3732 giving party to raise funds to save these families while reconnecting with your own friends and family. You just might start a ripple of giving that has the potential to reach far outside your circles and offer hope to persecuted and forgotten Christians during the Christmas season.
