I received a note this morning with a donation from a gentleman in Miami, FL.  The donation amount was $13 and the note read: 

“$14 in my bank account, just enough to contribute a whopping .0001% of your goal!”

The sacrifices our donors make on a regular basis to see to the success of our mission constantly amaze me, but this donation really spoke to my heart. 

Later in the day I received another phone call, this time from a donor who offered to match recurring gift donations received in the remaining few days of this campaign up to $5,000.

This donor expressed his desire to see LSN move away from our dependency on our quarterly campaigns.  Recurring donations would provide more stable income necessary to do just that, and so he had spent a lot of time thinking how he could best support and help sustain our work.

If you would like to take this special donor up on his offer, you can make a donation by clicking here.  Select your region, click on whichever 'Donate Today' button option is appropriate to you and then be sure to select “this is a donation recurring monthly” after you select a donation amount.  Also, please leave a note in the comment box indicating that you have made a recurring donation as part of the matching gift.  “For the recurring donation matching gift” would suffice.

This is a unique opportunity to become a sustaining member of the LSN team, and help us reach our current goal as well. 

Perhaps you have been thinking about making a donation to our campaign, but haven’t yet.  Or, perhaps you have made a donation and want to become one of the incredibly important and generous few who help sustain our organization in between campaigns. 

It wouldn’t take very many to help us realize this goal.

Of the hundreds of thousands of readers that will visit our website over the course of the next few days, it would only take a few hundred $5, $10, $25, $35, or possibly $50 recurring donations to reach the $5,000 matching gift that has been so graciously offered. Some supporters have even arranged for $100 up to $500 recurring monthly donations.

These two donors I mentioned above were on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of the size of their donation. But I couldn’t help but see through the donation amount to the quality of LSN donors who are the common thread weaving together the tapestry that is our truth mission.

These two experiences led me to an even greater appreciation and deeper understanding for those that we serve.      

Thank you so very much for your response to our needs.  I understand a little more the sacrifice your donation to LSN means to you and your family.  I understand a little more the generous heart behind the gift you make, no matter the amount.

And if you are unable to donate, and even if you are able to donate, we would appreciate your prayers for the complete success of this campaign. 

For life and family,
