“Stuff Christians Like isn’t even an original idea.”
“You can’t have a real community online.”
“Strangers will never get together and actually change the world from just a satire site.”
“Who are you to think you can change the world?”
“In the immortal words of social scientist, Miss Ferg A Licious, ‘Blogs are so 2000 and late.'”
We’ve all heard doubt like that, it’s common. So did we meet our goal of $10,000?
What just happened?
Stuff Christians Like readers raised $32,250 in 24 hours.
Stuff Christians Like readers saved 3,225 lives in Central Uganda.
Stuff Christians Like readers went on a fast, crazy, God-sized adventure.
We hit our initial goal of $10,000 in 2.5 hours. For the first four hours we had at least one donation every minute.
So what now? Now we distribute the nets. You’ll get GPS coordinates as the project unfolds so that you can actually know exactly where your nets went. We also might take a trip of readers over there to hand them out.
God is good. God is wild about us and I think on mornings like this he sings. Not at the work we do for him but at the worship we offer.
Thank you for making a blog more than a blog. Thank you for reminding the world that strangers can be friends. Thank you for saving lives in a country most of us will never even visit.
And most importantly, thanks for being part of something that shines the glory back on God in big, unexplainable ways.
