13) Get Your Item Published *Now*

Our queue is lots longer than the number of items we can publish weekly. We do eventually publish all items, regardless of sponsorship. However, those who pitch in to help cover Brigada’s expenses are treated with special dignity — because they’re helping pay the bills. We bump them directly to the head of the line. All of which means… if it’s Friday and you send in an item with a gift, there’s a good chance your item might be featured as quickly as 48 hours later (the following Sunday). Just follow the instructions for submitting an item (at our website, brigada.org, by reading the guidelines when you select “Submit an item”), then 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), 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.) How much should you give? We’ll leave that up to you. Basically, any amount gets you bumped to the front of the line. Obviously, the more you give, the more thankful we are. And thank you in advance for helping.

1) Journals, Made By Hand, Like Indiana Jones Would Use

You’ve *got* to see these to appreciate them…

http://www.sparrowtracks.etsy.com/

Here’s an artist (“Shawn”) who has the coolest moonlighting hobby. Shawn hunts down one-of-a-kind aged books, removes most of the original pages, then replaces them with parchment pages upon which you can write your journal – or take notes — or make plans — or draw sketches — or dream — or write about the grandkids — or whatever it is you need to say. And instead of being locked up inside of a hard drive (which you then might forget to back up), these priceless pages are “always on”, “0% down time” records of your thoughts. What’s more, your journaled notes now become somehow… like a priceless work of poetry or part of an ancient scrawl that Indiana Jones would carry into a previously-undiscovered cave in Ecuador. Imagine what great Christmas gifts these babies would make.

Now here’s the really cool part: For the next 7 days (beginning today, real-time, November 8th), Shawn pledges to give 1/2 of all sales to Brigada. Get this — not just *your* purchases, but instead, 1/2 of *all* sales! So send your friends, write up this guy on your facebook page, and tell your supporters. May we buy him out, lock, stock, and barrel. :-)

MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE A POSSIBILITY

Can it really be true that Brigada has lasted since January 25th, 1995, in a day and age that Internet ezines come and go? Help build continuity for tomorrow by inspiring and encouraging Brigada forward. Ask your church to pitch in $250 or even $100 toward Brigada for the 2008 calendar year. One Brigada reader suggested that perhaps each reader in the so-called “West” could give a $15/year scholarship on behalf of readers in the so-called “Majority World.” Want to make a difference?

INT’L CHURCH STEPS UP TO SPONSOR BRIGADA

Hats *way* off to the member of an International Church in the Middle East. He just wrote, “Five years ago our new pastor was reading Brigada and learned about the Missional International Church Network (MICN.org) and went to their first conference. He’s been to each annual conference since then. MICN has given him ideas and encouragement and likeminded friends. Brigada has impacted our pastor and many members of our multicultural congregation. Keep up the Kingdom work!” This gentleman made big history in the Brigada world this past week, when, with hopes of encouraging Brigada onward, he sent a gift of $1,000!!!!!!! Do you realize? … That’s like… incredible. So thanks to all those who labor and encourage. And by the way, you’ll recall that once we make our financial goal for the year, we’re done. With this gift, the total jumps way up, and with the two donations we also rec’d this past week (one for $20 from Oklahoma and another for $25 Colorado), the total for 2008 is now $2097.29. Do you realize… if just 15 other individuals or churches could step up in the same way, on behalf of the 10,000 participants in Brigada, we’d be *done* for all of 2008!!! Whoa.
