I used to think changing the world was done by world changers: People with power, money and influence.
A superhero cape didn’t hurt either.
But more than ever, I’m convinced world change happens in the quiet yes’ of ordinary days, by inadequate people who simply love God and others.
Which sort of gets us all in the game.
You don’t know my heroes, they can’t fill a stadium or sell a truckload of books. They work in obscurity and are unknown. They simply live to make His glory known.
And while there is no formula for world change, I believe it all comes down to this: it all starts with one small yes.
We like to categorize people. This guy does big stuff. That gal is special, look what she can create. But there is one category every God-lover fits into: you were created to do something for Him. You may still be looking for your One thing, but I believe there are a few choices we can all make.
You might be staring down a dozen questions today or perhaps you’re waiting for someone to ask. I know what the answer is.
I’m excited and honored to be a part of a brilliant new movement called Pure Charity. This non-profit takes ordinary people like us who buy from powerful companies in corporate America and it turns our every day purchases into something good, benefitting amazing non-profit projects to help people in need.
Pure Charity doesn’t encourage you to spend more money, rather it harnesses what you’re already spending and puts it to good work. If you buy diapers online, purchase plane tickets, need a new printer, pride yourself as an Amazon Prime member, your clicks count.
In 3 easy steps, you can make a difference. Here’s how it works:
- Sign up at Pure Charity.
- Download the webapp bar. This little app in the corner of your screen will make it easy for you to know if one of the 800 retailers is a Pure Charity partner. You can just go about your online business and when you shop, click the webapp to make sure you get giving credit for your purchases.
- Fund a project. Here’s where it gets fun! You can add a debit/credit card to your account and put money into a project OR as you shop, your giving fund will accumulate and you can choose projects to give it to.
——–>Amazing truth: With just a simple yes (click), you can help fund projects like this one at our very own Mercy House! It’s free, it’s intentional, it’s a small way to make a big difference!
I believe in Pure Charity. I believe in you. I believe that together our yes counts. Will you please take 5 minutes and join me today?
