On Dec. 1, United Methodists will once again come together to support the work of Advance projects and missionaries on UMC #GivingTuesday. And once again, every gift made online through The Advance at on Dec. 1, 2015 will be matched up to $1 milion.* The missionary who receives the highest amount of online donations on UMC #GivingTuesday will be able to direct $10,000 to an Advance project of his/her choice!

The theme for the 2015 UMC #Giving Tuesday campaign is "Activate Love. Transform Lives. Change the World."

Help kick off this event by creating your own team to support a project that is working in an area you care about, such as hunger and poverty, education, or social justice. For a complete list of projects you and your team can support, visit The Advance, or download and share UMC #GivingTuesday resources.

SoSA-UM Donation Update
I'm excited to let you know about a new feature that Mike Hickcox has added to our website to assist congregations and individuals wishing to give to SoSA through UMCOR/The Advance! (all lowercase on the umc) automatically redirects to the SoSA Donate page on the UMCOR/Advance website. The purpose of this feature is to offer an easy-to-remember link that saves a lot of steps ... folks who want to give through The Advance go directly to the right page for doing so. 

To see Lynette Johnson's full letter and a list of all the advantages for donors (as well as for SoSA) by using online gifts through The Advance, see the MWD website by clicking here!
