As we approach the halfway mark of 2017, we can report to you that there have been twenty-four significant natural disasters so far this year. You may not have heard of them. You may have noticed that the news media is VERY preoccupied with other topics. When disasters strike, we know people are overwhelmed with the desire to help. However, tens of thousands of American families have been impacted by these natural disasters and, because most people are not aware of them, these families have had to bare it alone.
Families in Missouri, New Orleans and Albany, GA received aid because we were there and you stood with us. However, there are so many families that need assistance today.
Will You Be A Champion For Gleaning?
Gleaning uses only 0.3% of its income on marketing and fundraising. Why? We know that when you donate, you want your hard-earned money to go towards helping suffering families — not paying for advertising. However, there is a potential downside with that.
As a supporter, we are asking you to be a champion for Gleaning. At the bottom of this blog, there is a section where you can share this and future Gleaning blog posts with your friends and family. We are asking you to share our updates with three friends and share on social media.
This is powerful and practical way to partner with us by spreading the news and reaching people who care just like you
