In today’s fast-paced world, where technology connects us more than ever, a remarkable transformation is taking place in the way people raise funds for their projects and needs. Crowdfunding has emerged as a powerful force, allowing individuals to rally their “crowd” of supporters to help them achieve their goals. However, not everyone has the privilege of a supportive community to turn to in times of need. This is where the Giver Army comes in.
Crowdfunding has democratized fundraising, enabling people from all walks of life to tap into the generosity of their peers. It’s a testament to the incredible capacity for empathy and collective action that our digital age has unlocked. Yet, amidst this vast sea of connectivity, there are those who find themselves without the crucial support of a community. They are the ones who have lost hope, who feel isolated in their struggles, and who need a lifeline.
At GiveSendGo Charities, we recognized the need to bridge this gap and provide the “crowd” for those who have no one to turn to. Thus, we initiated the Giver Army, a community of compassionate individuals who stand ready to be that crowd for the crowdless. Our mission is simple but profound: to find those who are in dire need and become their support system.
The foundation of the Giver Army is deeply rooted in the teachings of Jesus. He urged his followers to give without expecting anything in return and to do so quietly, without seeking recognition. He illuminated through the parable of the Good Samaritan the concept of a neighbor as someone who is in need near you, whether you know them or not, whether you like them or not. In today’s world, where physical proximity is no longer a barrier, we aspire to embody these principles.
Each member of the Giver Army has the privilege to select a charitable cause that resonates with them personally. By doing so, they become part of the crowd for the crowdless, the family for those without families, and the friend who is unknown but ever-present. It’s an opportunity to live out a new kind of generosity in our tech-driven world today.
We invite you to join the Giver Army and be part of this extraordinary movement. Our organization is committed to identifying those in the most pressing need, and we ensure that 100% of the contributions (after Stripe processing fees) go directly to those in need. It’s an opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of people who may otherwise be left without hope.
In a world where technology can sometimes create distance, the Giver Army brings us closer to the true essence of humanity: compassion, empathy, and a willingness to stand with those in need. Together, we can rewrite the narrative of generosity in our digital age and prove that the “crowd” can be there for everyone, regardless of their circumstances. Join us, and together, let’s be the change we wish to see in the world.
