The season of Lent concluded a few weeks ago, and with it we concluded the #C4Cchallenge. Although the challenge itself is over, Change for Change (C4C) is here to stay throughout the year!
Are you wondering why?
Take a moment and think about what has happened in the world, in your own life and in the lives of others in the past two months. A situation can change instantly, causing a ripple effect of more change.
For this reason, we believe Change for Change should be as constant as our ever-changing world. Persecution doesn’t stop because a season has ended; the needs of the persecuted church don’t disappear because the #C4Cchallenge is over. Our brothers and sisters still need us to pray and to give. So, let’s take Change for Change to greater heights in 2015!
If you haven’t heard of Change for Change yet (or need a recap), here’s how it works:
Change for Change is about giving up your spare change and giving it to the persecuted church.
This spare change might be what you would spend on a cup of coffee or a movie with some friends.
You can work on your own, with a group of friends, or with your youth/college group. It’s up to you!
All the money given for Change for Change will go toward Christian Community Restoration (refugee camps, essential needs, etc.).
Stay active on social media, using the hashtag #change4change. Share the needs of the persecuted Christians with those around you! Plus, we want to share what you are doing on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Use a fundraising app where people can help you in giving with a credit card to your group’s C4C account: https://app.mobilecause.com/join/odusa/4CHANGE
You can also give online here: https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/4CHANGE
