Lifeline Children’s Services announces $100,000 matching gift for Giving Day 2023

Lifeline Children’s Services has received a $100,000.00 matching gift as the ministry prepares for its Annual Giving Day on June 21, 2023. The anonymous donor has promised to match every gift given to Lifeline on this day up to $100,000.00.

Lifeline’s Giving Day is an annual event observed by partners across the world to dedicate one day as a time when the entire ministry rallies around critical needs for support. For 2023, the focus is on three areas of growing need: women in crisis pregnancies, children in the foster care system, and families in crisis. Each ministry area is supported by Lifeline’s team of care providers who help women, children, and families overcome the challenges facing them. Every gift provided on Lifeline’s Giving Day goes to these specific ministry areas and makes an immediate impact to relieve suffering and provide hope to those in need.

“I am grateful to this donor who has stepped forward to raise awareness of the need and opportunity available to everyone who partners with us this year,” stated Herbie Newell, President of Lifeline Children’s Services. “This has become a special day to us at Lifeline because we see the power of friends and partners across the world coming together for this one 24-hour period to invest in the lives of women, children, and families across the world. Together, Lifeline’s work is made more effective, and it is always an encouragement to hear from so many friends of the ministry on this day every year.”

Lifeline’s third Annual Giving Day will be Wednesday, June 21, 2023. On that day, give here to be counted toward the $100,000 matching gift. The hashtag #MakeHopePossible will be available on public social media posts.
