Decorate a Tree and Help the Poor!

Today I want to tell you a little something about my family's organization, Matthew 25: Ministries.

During the holiday season, I know a lot of you probably donate to a charity or volunteer. There are a lot of places out there asking for your time or money, I know it. But I want to introduce you to one more...but they are a little different. Why? Well, over 99% of the money that is donated to Matthew 25: Ministries goes towards their programs to send goods to the poor!!! Over 99%!!! Isn't that amazing?

Bottom line is, if you donate to Matthew 25: Ministries, you know your donation is being used the right way. It is not going towards the staff so they can drive fancy cars or live in big houses, it is going to the people who need it, the poorest of the poor!!

Just a little tip for you when you donate: Be sure to ask how much of your donation actually goes towards the cause. You may be surprised at what you hear! If you are not happy with what you hear, think of Matthew 25: Ministries and consider donating to them.

One way you can donate to Matthew 25: Ministries this holiday season is by decorating their Christmas tree! Of course, this is easier if you live here in Cincinnati, Ohio because you can actually stop in to buy a bulb, put your name on it and hang it on the tree! Or you can always send a check by mail if you aren't close and they can put your name on the bulbs and hang them on the tree for you!!

Of course, you can always just donate, too! Believe me, it is going towards a great cause! You can learn more about Matthew 25: Ministries by clicking here to visit their website!

I will be sharing more with you about Matthew 25: Ministries in the future! Thanks for considering them!

I will leave you today with Matthew 25: Ministries' Mission:

The mission of Matthew 25:Ministries is to fulfill Matthew 25:34-40 of the New Testament by providing nutritional food to the hungry, clean water to the thirsty, clothing to the naked, affordable shelter to the homeless, medical care to the ill, and humanitarian supplies to prisoners.

The people we help are not receiving a handout, but a helping hand. It is only when a person’s most basic needs are met, that one can become self reliant. Because of this belief, Matthew 25: Ministries has always placed an emphasis on education, job creation and providing aid to children.
