Discover what God is doing in Ecuador through ProjectM25.
We are so thankful for your partnership to help the Give Christmas project make an even bigger impact! We want your fundraising journey to be easy and fun, so this guide is designed to walk you through creating a successful, partner-powered, fundraising campaign.
Your first step is to set a goal for your fundraising campaign. Twenty-five dollars sponsors one child’s Christmas, so you may set a goal of sponsoring 10 kids ($250), 20 kids ($500), etc. Be sure to share this goal with people in your area of influence and include a personal message about why you are doing this. The success of your fundraising campaign depends heavily on sharing your campaign with friends, family, and colleagues. Social media, email, text messaging, and word of mouth are some of the best ways to get your request noticed.
We’ve included pre-written communications for you to use, along with a planning calendar to make fundraising as easy as pie. Multiple options are available for you to use in promoting the Give Christmas sponsorship program both digitally and in print.
Get ready to help a good cause as you copy, paste, and start fundraising. 🙂

Help us show the LOVE of God to HUNDREDS of at-risk children in Ecuador this Christmas at our 10th annual Give Christmas Celebration.
These sweet kids have experienced great difficulty this year, as COVID has taken loved ones, homes,
Every $25 helps provide SPECIAL Bible-focused fun, a nutritious meal, and special gifts that are often the ONLY gift the child will receive.
Many of these children live in the poorest conditions you can imagine. They often work in the streets and markets to help their families. They always greatly appreciate and cherish the gifts they receive.
Each year, the children are so excited to receive clothing, toys, candy and food for their families. The smiles on their faces as they receive these simple gifts are priceless. It is such a joy for us to partner with you in being the hands and feet of Jesus extended to these children, making this their BEST Christmas EVER.
This huge endeavor is only made possible with YOUR support. Every $25 greatly impacts a child’s life for Christ. Please consider sponsoring at least one child this year to help us spread God’s love.
