Here's something to consider in view of my last post, you know the obnoxious one on your money!
What do you plan to do with your tax rebate check that either has been deposited to your checking account or will be coming through the mail? You know, the $600 or $1,200 windfall that the federal government is giving back to help "stimulate the economy."
Why not donate part or all of it to Central Dallas Ministries or to some other effective charitable endeavor?
Here's my "challenge level" lineup for you to consider:
Compassion gift 10-49% of your rebate
Community gift 50-75% of your rebate
Commitment gift 76%-100% of your rebate
If you choose to make an investment in the work we are doing in Dallas in the inner city, we will be grateful. And, I can assure you your help will stimulate the lives of our neediest citizens.
I'd love to keep a running total on the gifts given. So, if you make such a contribution to CDM, please note it is part of "Larry's Rebate Challenge."
If you give to another organization, please let me know where and how much you are giving either here or by email to ljames@CentralDallasMinistries.org.
Contributions can be mailed to CDM at P. O. Box 710385, Dallas, Texas 75371-0385 or online through our website at http://www.centraldallasministries.org/.
Thanks for considering my challenge. I hope you'll accept it.
