10) Would you Make a Pledge?

As mentioned above, we’re already up to $2016.18 in 2010. Our fundraising goal for 2010 is exactly the same as it has been for the past few years (no raises here): $17,120. Would you be willing to pitch in something to undergird Brigada’s ongoing ministry of collaboration, resource-sharing, and missions mobilization? This humble fund — roughly equal to working part-time at a cash register at McDonalds — is all we ask for website costs, marketing, part-time secretarial, and sponsorship to Team Expansion, where the ministry of Brigada is based. So here’s an idea: If you know right now what you might be willing to give sometime during the month of December, 2010, would you be willing to send a simple email to Doug at

just to let him know that it’s covered. If we reach a point that all remaining $15,000 is covered, we’ll stop including this item in all future Brigadas throughout 2010. Or — want to go on and give a gift now? Bless you! Just click on one of the “Donor” links at the top of this page. Both are safe, the one with PayPal and the other with Authorize.net. Neither requires you to open an account with anyone … and neither ever spams you. We can even set up a regular once-a-month automatic withdraw from your checking account or major credit card. Set it up once and rest easily, knowing that you’re regularly helping get Brigada on the way to the nations. Or, if you prefer, just send an old-fashioned check payable to Team Expansion to: Team Expansion (Brigada), 13711 Willow Reed Dr., Louisville, KY 40299. (Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so for USA citizens, your checks made out to Team Expansion are tax-deductible.) A gift of any size would help, whether monthly or one-time. If you know someone else who might like to help, just hit reply and tell us about him/her/them. Thank you for your help in fueling the fire of Brigada!
