A Crazy Giveaway

On a fairly regular basis, Dan and I receive emails from people who are interested in and supportive of our work with SixtyFeet. Occasionally, we receive emails from people who want to participate in our work and get involved with SixtyFeet. And once in a blue moon, we’ll receive emails from people who just want to go buck wild and do something crazy for SixtyFeet.

Tonight, I want to share a story about two young ladies who fall into that third, crazy category.


Meet Kelsey and Kirby. These ladies are 26 and 22 years old, respectively. Kelsey is a graduate of the University of North Florida and Kirby is a student at Florida State College.

These girls are at prime time for living the fun life. They're educated, unattached, attractive and have their whole lives and careers ahead of them. The world is their oyster! So what do you think these girls are planning to do with the next twelve months of their lives?

They've chosen to spend it on the mission field in Uganda, with SixtyFeet, serving and loving on “the least of these.” They’ve chosen to forsake the things of this world and the path the world tells them they should pursue – because our God has called them to something different.

Tonight, Kelsey and Kirby are packing up (literally as we speak!) and will leave next month to spend an entire year living and working in Uganda. For free.

These girls have drained their savings accounts, sought support from their family and friends and raised funds in any and every way imaginable – because they don't want to draw a salary that would take away funds from the children SixtyFeet serves.

It's no small thing to raise support for a full year of mission work abroad. K & K have done so well and they are SO close to reaching their goal. However, they’re still facing a $2,000 shortfall.

Can you help them close this gap? Can you donate below or share this link with someone who can?
In mission work, there are two kinds of people – senders and goers. If you’re not going, can you help send someone who is? That’s how the work of Christ gets done.

All donations received below are tax deductible through SixtyFeet. As always, no amount is too small. But if you're giving, you may want to consider giving at least $25. Anyone who gives at least that amount, will be entered for a give-away for two SixtyFeet shirts of your choice -- men's, women's or children's. The winner can visit the site and pick your tee.


Donate

If you share this link on facebook and let me know about it, I'll enter you a second time. If you blog about it, that's a third chance. I suppose there should also be some kind of benefit for tweeting... but I still don't understand The Twitter. Sorry.

So, there you have it. I'll randomly draw and announce the winner on Sunday night -- and also update you on the totals raised for our girls. Can't wait!
