We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
As we look back at 2013, we are overwhelmed by all that has been accomplished through Kershaw's Challenge, and the supporters that have come alongside us to serve children worldwide. Thanks to you, children in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Zambia will be given opportunities they never dreamed of getting. Because of your generosity, these children will grow up to be leaders & know the importance of giving back to those in need. This is the beginning of a great ripple effect, and we are humbled to be standing here with you.
Our 2013 Challenge will end on December 31st, and all our funds we have raised this past year will immediately hit the ground in LA, Dallas & Africa. 100% of your donation will go straight into the hands of 3 unbelievable non-profits, and begin the work of projects that will make life-changing differences in the community. We will begin building a school in Zambia that will serve a community of thousands of impoverished children. We will begin the plans of building a baseball field in inner-city Dallas for kids who need a safe place and activity to participate in after school. And we will start an after-school program for kids in Los Angeles through a continuation highschool to help them graduate and be productive citizens.
We could do this without you. You play such a significant role in our ministry, and our goals to create a better life for those in need. We have seen the fruits of being a part of something so much greater than ourselves, and would like to extend the invitation to you to join us. Being a part of the Lord's work is a life-giving, and we will never be the same because of it.
So as you wrap up 2013, we extend an invitation to you to join our Challenge. It's never too late to start giving back. One day at a time, one dollar at a time, lives are being changed. Leaders are being raised. And because of you, this world will be a better place.
