URGENT: End of the Year Opportunity

Way back in 2008, Sonlight had the Rice Bag giving opportunity. It was a huge success.

I got an email two hours ago from Mission India with another opportunity: Give before the end of 2009 and your money will be doubled. A ministry partner has agreed to match up to $150,000 of gifts given in the last few hours of 2009.

Just wanted to spread the word. This is a crazy opportunity. Crazy time frame. Crazy cool. So if you're looking for a last minute place to give your tax deductible gifts for 2009, consider giving to Mission India.

As I wrap up my last day of work for 2009, I'll share a small update I did yesterday. You can now find a friendly link to Sonia on the right side of most pages on Sonlight's website. Who is Sonia? Head on over and find out!

Happy New Year!

See you next week in 2010.

Hay Luke I hope you and your family have the greatest 2010... lots of love to you all from far away Cape Town.

Better yet, give the gift that parents all over the world treasure most: parental rights. Remember the Golden Rule, giving the same dignity and respect to other parents (allowing them their centuries-old religions and traditions) as you'd hope to enjoy yourselves.

Or, do the opposite and give to groups like Mission India. ;)

Thanks, Se7en! The same to you <smile>.

You make me smile, Lynn. Mission India, thankfully, does not take away parental rights. Instead, they actually increase them by teaching women how to read. They empower families all over India. And, what's more in my mind, give the opportunity to begin to move outside the oppressive caste system that has stripped the people of India of dignity for centuries. So, yes: Please give to Mission India to fulfill everything you mention... and more <smile>.
