Give To The Max

By Anne Berg, Staff Writer

       Thanksgiving is meant to be a day where we all focus on how thankful we are for everything and everyone we have in our lives. More than that, it is also a time of giving where we should all take the time to help those around us. Unfortunately most of us get caught up in the food and a break from school and work, and don’t even think to help others. Trust me, I am definitely guilty of this. With Thanksgiving coming up around the corner I think its time for all of us to put some serious thought into how we are going to give this holiday season. And I know at least one way that we can all start with today!November 16th is your chance to give before the holidays even start.


      The GOD’S CHILD Project (GCP) needs your help to reach their goal of 22,523 dollars to pay the bills of infants and children in their care today on Give to the Max Day! Donations made today will be worth 10,000 by the end of the day, so even the smallest amount can make a huge difference! We’re all guilty of thinking that we do not have enough to give, but this time maybe we can skip that venti Strawberry Refresher from Starbucks (my drink of choice) or whatever the equivalent is for you, and give the five dollars to this incredible charity instead! Donations can be made all day long by going to:
      What is The GOD’S CHILD Project? Founded in 1991, GCP is a non-denominational organization that provides essential care to thousands of children, widows, single mothers and families suffering from intense poverty. They reach families in Guatemala, El Salvador, India, Malawi, and the United States. In addition to this GCP prevents and rescues victims of human trafficking with their Institute for Trafficked, Exploited & Missing Persons (ITEMP). Dedicated to sustainable and permanent changes, GCP provides education, healthcare, basic needs, emergency disaster relief, human rights services, and family care.

      Give to the Max Day is a great chance to make the most out of every donation! Donating today also gets you entered into a drawing to possibly win 1,000 dollars! But this isn’t the only time that you can donate, go to their website at any time during the year to help out!
