Dear Friend of Desire Street,
When was the last time you thought about what you’re thankful for? Well, I am thankful for YOU!
You’ve made it obvious you care about the beautiful, bigger picture in life—the noble goal of a brighter future. You’ve connected with us, showing you care about the challenges of kids and families living in neighborhoods in great need of revitalization. YOU make it possible for us to help leaders thrive. And those leaders reach hundreds of kids and families with the love, hope and encouragement of the Gospel.
In this holiday season of thankfulness, hope and love, would you consider making a gift to continue the great work you’ve begun?
We’ve promised we won’t hound you, so just three times a year we let you know what your support is accomplishing and the ways you can continue to make the world a better place through Desire Street.
Together, we’re making an impact. Together, lives are being changed!
Thank you and God bless,
P.S. Your gift by Dec. 31st will help us help more leaders next year.
Thank you! You continue to sustain Desire Street’s work—helping over a hundred leaders not only survive, but thrive.
The hurricanes earlier this year reminded us how you—our “family”—helped get us back on our feet after Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago. You made it possible then, and many times since then, to be resilient to whatever life threw at us.
Working in neighborhoods short on resources, and long on the related problems, means leaders must continually, resiliently, offer hope and encouragement to their neighbors who don’t have the same means to recover from life’s challenges.
Would you please consider sending a gift by Dec. 31st to help us to expand our reach to more leaders working in neighborhoods across the country?
Your gift would help accomplish the work of Desire Street—things like:
- $25 would provide a coaching call to a leader who is discouraged
- $50 would help Desire Street cultivate leaders to coach other leaders
- $100 would allow us to support leaders’ families
- $250 would send a coach to work one-on-one with a leader wanting to learn best practices
- $1,000 would help provide materials, food and lodging for a leader attending leadership training
Every time you encourage a leader like Demetrius in Orlando, you reach a child—make that 40 kids in his Young Overcomers Club. And every child you help toward a brighter future, means a brighter future for all of us.
So, thank you for being there for us. Thank you for being there for these heroes who are having a great impact. Thank you for being there for the kids and families who have an uphill battle in life.
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is…to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously, if it is to lead, do it diligently…” Romans 12:6-8
Thank you for your gift of encouragement!
