May God bless Mission Network, Mt. Vernon, WA, for sending a fantastic gift of $100. The great part is, they’ve done the same every month for the past year. Would you consider asking your church to do the same?

You see, we prayerfully set a modest budget of $17,120 for 2013. (This annual amount has remained unchanged for nearly a decade.) With it, we pay hosting fees, some travel costs, some marketing expenses, and modest salaries. Each week, thousands of people actively open and click on items in Brigada from nations all over the world. Many live in regions with unfavorable economic situations. Others are more blessed. If just 172 people would take on Brigada as a special cause for their end-of-year giving… and if each of those 172 people would make a single $100 donation, our entire year’s budget would be met. You could join us in a brief celebration in the next edition — and then we wouldn’t have to ask again for another year. The great news is, throughout the year, including gifts this past week, we’ve already received $5191.62. (Thank you!!!) So the truth is, we really only need 120 additional partners to send $100 each. Would you prayerfully consider becoming one of those 120 “True Fans” of Brigada today? You can give via a credit card or PayPal by clicking the “Donate” button (upper right at www.brigada.org). Or you can mail a check made payable to Team Expansion (Brigada), 13711 Willow Reed Drive, Louisville, KY 40299. Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so, for USA citizens, your gift to Christ through Team Expansion is tax-deductible. We’ll quickly send a thank-you note and receipt. We won’t add you to any mailing list unless you request it. Thanks for your prayers, your partnership, and your participation in the Brigada family!
