10) Last Chance to Chip in on 2009 Gifts

With the gifts above, our total for 2009 giving arrives at $13,214.38. This is awesome… but still $3905.62 short of our goal/need for 2009 (same as for 2008) of $17,120. Keep in mind, we could now finish this if just 39 people would step up to the plate during the next 7 days, each sending $100 to demonstrate their desire to be a “True Fan of Brigada.” Last year we *made* the goal. We’re so close this year. Actually, your church, group, or you might even have the capacity to finish this off for the globe-full of subscribers, many of whom can’t afford to send funds. Last year, we received one gift of $5000 in the last breath of 2008. Would you join us in praying that someone will step up to the plate this week? To get involved, 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 one of the most well-known “real” online merchants on the web. 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), 11327 Jefferson Trace Blvd., Louisville, KY 40291. (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!

10) Would you consider giving this Thanksgiving?

thanksgivinggirlIf you’re thankful for someone, why not send a thank-you gift to Brigada, where we can mention their first name… and if you like, their city/state/country too.

8) Become a “True Friend” of Brigada

100Before the end of 2009, would you consider making a $100 pledge or gift to Brigada? If you’re not in a position to do, would you consider speaking to your church or agency about it? Just that one single 2009 gift for the year would undergird our entire ministry. 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 one of the most well-known “real” online merchants on the web. Neither requires you to open an account with anyone … and neither ever spams you.

9) Would you consider asking your church to support Brigada?

We’ve recently committed to helping Team Expansion become established at its new training campus in Louisville, Kentucky. See their site at:

http://www.emeraldhills.info

Think of it as a smaller version of emerald hillsthe U.S. Center for World Mission. (Even as I write those words, I realize nothing could ever match the vision that the late Dr. Ralph Winter managed to muster for that campus. I remember in the late 70′s, when I first heard about it, I was amazed that he was tackling it. However, in the spirit of Dr. Winter, we’re venturing where only fools might dare to tread, … ) In a very unique fundraising initiative, Team Expansion is seeking 29 partners, each of which would be asked to donate $24,000 to create a “Prayer Shelter” at the Emerald Hills site. Since Team Expansion has been very very good to Brigada, we’re love to help them out as they get started at their new campus. If you’d like to help, 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 one of the most well-known “real” online merchants on the web. Neither requires you to open an account with anyone … and neither ever spams you. Or, if you prefer, just send an old-fashioned check payable to Team Expansion to: Team Expansion (Brigada), 11327 Jefferson Trace Blvd., Louisville, KY 40291. (Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so for USA citizens, your checks made out to Team Expansion are tax-deductible.) If you’d like your gift to go toward the “29″ fund (the Prayer Shelter) just mark it on the check or in the comment line. Again, the goal for this “29″ project is $24,000. Learn more about the “29″ idea by browsing to:

http://www.emeraldhills.info/images/29_brochure-low-res.pdf

A gift of any size would help, whether monthly or one-time. If you know of someone who might sponsor the entire amount, please just hit reply and tell us how to help. Thank you for any help you can give.

17) Help Brigada Help The World Of Missions

As many as one-half of our readership live in what some call the developing world where conditions are not favorable for their financial situation.

9) Your Gift To Brigada Makes An Immediate Difference

While some works are so large, $25 or $50 might not be noticed, with Brigada, a $25 gift is a fortune… and a $100 “True Fan” gift is a true lifeblood interaction. Thanks in advance for any that can help. Furthermore, Brigada has recently committed to underwriting the cost of a Prayer Shelter on behalf of all Brigada readers at Emerald Hills, a new missions nerve center in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. If you’d like to make a special gift toward the cost of the Prayer Shelter, please feel free to use your credit card at

http://teamexp.donorpages.com/brigada/douglucas/

You’ll see a thermometer on the site to keep track of the project. The names or memorials of donors giving a modest undergirding gift of $500 or more will be engraved on a permanent plaque at the Prayer Shelter. What a great way to remember someone special in the lives of your family, mission, church, school or community. What’s more, you’ll be able to register as a Brigada fundraiser there and become part of the team. Read all about it there online. Thanks!

(Keep in mind, this is in addition to our normal Brigada budget needs here at Brigada.org, but it does go to provide a site to serve as Brigada’s home base, nerve center, and staging HQ.) Check out the growing retreat center at
