This giving Tuesday, we wanted to do something special for an organization close to my heart.
Most people don't know this, but before I started ellyandgrace, I worked at a few nonprofits in the St. Louis area- in events and annual giving (AKA- fundraising). I inherited my philanthropic nature from my parents, and my husband and I support several causes both personally and through ellyandgrace.
15% of every sale today will be going to Christ in Youth.
Christ in Youth is an organization based in Joplin, Missouri. Their mission is “to call youth to Christ and in to a life of Kingdom work through the local church.”They put on incredible events for elementary- high school students. I still remember going to my first event- in 7th grade! And now that I have a child, this organization is even more important.
Their main revenue source is their events- so, as you can imagine, this year has been challenging for them.
But, they have pivoted- creating incredible virtual programming for youth ministers all over the world! As the needs of the home church change, CIY changes with it. And we are so happy to be donating 15% of all orders placed today to their organization!
