It’s Giving Tuesday, a day focused on sharing with others during the holiday season. I wanted to share some ministries I care about deeply if you are looking for some awesome organizations to support this December (or all the year-round).
I’m starting locally with this nonprofit gym in Atlanta. My dear friend Laura started Urban Perform, almost accidentally, as the neighborhood began asking her to lead the project and God just kept opening doors. It was incredible to watch.
They focus on providing safe, affordable opportunities for exercise. They know positive physical health can have a huge impact on individuals, families and communities.
Full disclosure: I work for Mission Year and totally love the work we do!
Mission Year is a national organization that places Christian young adults in urban neighborhoods in the US. Team members volunteer with local agencies, partner with community churches and invest in the neighborhood.
Earlier this year, Billy and I had a discussion about our desire to support a ministry serving in Guatemala. We were particularly drawn to Lemonade International because they work in the capital city.
They are doing some incredible work, and we are excited about their micro-finance program. They also address housing and education needs.
I’d love to know other folks doing good work across the globe. Feel free to share your favorite ministries in the comments.
And if you are looking for some fantastic organizations to support, I hope you’ll consider these three.
