Stop Hunger Now on Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, and is the PERFECT time to help make a real difference in the world. Prayerfully consider helping end hunger in our lifetime with a gift to Stop Hunger Now. Below is an open letter from tour CEO, Rod Brooks.

Dear friends,
Today is #GivingTuesday! Have you contributed to Stop Hunger Now? For today only, as part of UMC #GivingTuesday, gifts made to Stop Hunger Now through Advance # 982795.  will be matched.* As always, when you give to us through The Advance, 100 percent of your gift directly supports our work; overhead costs are covered through other channels. 

UMC #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of cheerful Christian giving by making a donation to Stop Hunger Now through The Advance. When you make an online donation December 2 you will unite with others to maximize impact and show the world the transformational power that can happen in one day…when Methodists are united.

Last year on UMC #GivingTuesday, United Methodists collectively raised a record $6.5 million online through The Advance . We received $32,000, and thanks in part to those gifts, in December 2013 we were able to distribute more than 2 million meals to people around the world who suffer from hunger.

Thank you so much for your faithful support and for multiplying your impact by making a generous online gift today for UMC #GivingTuesday.

Grace and peace,
Rod Brooks, President and CEO
Stop Hunger Now
