45 days of taking a stand.
And Stand for Orphans you did! We are halfway through the summer & we have loved seeing so many of you engage your families and children through hosting stands of all kinds: lemonade, popsicles, baked goods, dog treats and even farm-fresh produce! Your creativity and enthusiasm amazes us.
People have signed up to make a stand all over the country! Here’s a quick overview of what Lifeline friends have accomplished in this first half of summer:
An offer of a $50,000 match for all funds raised through Stand for Orphans
An offer of a $10,000 match for funds raised in North Carolina
256 amazing stands being planned across the United States (and Canada too!)
73 Stands in Alabama
26 Stands in North Carolina
19 Stands in Georgia
138 Stands in other states all over the country!
Over $39,000 raised to defend orphaned and vulnerable children all over the world!
As we mentioned, a generous partner has offered to match every $1 up to $50,000. So we’ve still got some work to do! Will you help us maximize the impact of this gift & receive both matches? Here’s how you can help:
