Finishing Strong Help Links International Finish The Year Strong! This year Links has been able to impact countries across the globe, empowering and equipping our partners to advance the kingdom, confront poverty and catalyse potential. This is only possible because of your faithful investment. Would you consider making a special Christmas offering to Links to help us finish the year strong and to step into 2018 ready to continue changing lives and transforming communities? On behalf of all those whose lives you are impacting please receive our heartfelt thanks! Links Christmas Gifts. At a loss for gift inspiration? Wondering what to get for that family member who has everything? Wanting your giving to be meaningful and beyond the deafening clamour of consumerism? Perhaps Links can help you this year to give gifts that won’t be forgotten about once the wrapping paper has been thrown away but gifts that will bring transformation and life to individuals and communities around the world. From anywhere between £7 providing mosquito nets to potentially save the lives of families, to £45 providing training in community healthcare or micro-enterprise development. You could give the gift of life this Christmas! Links has all kinds of options to suit every budget so please check out our shop page on the website for more ideas and information: Fundraising. There are so many ways to raise both awareness of the amazing work of our partners around the world, whilst also raising cash in many fun and diverse ways! Throughout the year, from bake sales, to sponsored challenges and events, community and church fundraisers, thousands of pounds have been raised to change lives, impact communities and release people into their destinies. You can even raise funds for Links simply through your online shopping! Links founder and CEO, Norman Barnes writes: Some time ago in the Links magazine the suggestion was made that all readers and supporters of Links International might like to raise additional funds for Links by being part of Easy Fund Raising. I responded to this suggestion and so far through my various purchases especially through Amazon UK I have raised at the time of writing the grand sum of £74.65 for Links and all this at no cost to myself! The process is very simple just go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and register your charity as being Links International and the rest is done for you. Every time you want to purchase goods through Amazon go to the Easy Funding web site and click on Amazon and then simply purchase your goods as usual and Amazon will automatically donate a sum of money into the Links International account. Why not give it a try five minutes at the computer and you can be a donor to the Links charity and be a blessing to so many people. So why not escape the Christmas mayhem, grab a coffee and shop online knowing that you are confronting poverty in the process? If you have a desire to raise money to support Links International, but don’t know where to start, check out our fundraising pages. Having been inspired by the creative ideas of people and throwing in a few of our own, we have come up with an A-Z of fund raising options to whet your appetite. Thank you for joining with us to confront poverty!
