Giving Tuesday is just that: a day of the week, just before the Christmas season, that offers a chance to give financially. Giving Tuesday follows the American Thanksgiving and the well-known shopping days Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Although this is the fifth year of Giving Tuesday, it will be Galcom International’s second year celebrating it. Through social media, Giving Tuesday can harness the potential of people willing to donate to Galcom.
Here at Galcom, we call it Extreme Production Day. Last year we posted YouTube videos several times during the day. We wanted to make 1,000 radios in one day and raise $10 for each radio in donations, totaling $10,000. We didn’t quite make the goal of 1,000 radios, but we still were able to make over 700! These radios were made for a ministry called Every Village and were sent to South Sudan. Every Village matched the donations that were made to Galcom.
This year, as we launch Giving Tuesday, the radios produced will go to Belize. The goal is to make 500 radios in one day.
How can you help?
- If you are in Hamilton, come help make some radios!
- You can also give a donation towards this order going to Belize so that we can send even more radios overseas.
- If you aren’t able to join us in-house, you can follow us on YouTube. We will be posting videos periodically throughout the day, and it would be great if you can share these videos with your friends.
- And the most important thing that you can do is to pray! Pray for the volunteers making the audio Bibles, and pray especially for the people that will be receiving the audio Bibles.
