Several ministries in the North Georgia Conference are participating in the inaugural Georgia Gives Day on Dec. 6, 2012. Ministries include Camp Glisson, Action Ministries, Foundation of Wesley Woods, and The United Methodist Children's Home. Georgia Gives day is a new initiative in the state to raise awareness and charitable giving.
How you can help:
Let folks in your church know about Georgia Gives Day via email, newsletter, and bulletin. Many of your congregation will hear about it at work – you can let them know they can support United Methodist Ministries through Georgia Gives. Search for “United Methodist” or "Methodist" through the Georgia Gives website www.GAgivesday.org. (People can also search by county and zip code, and give locally; you may find some local giving you want to promote, as well.)
If you have a Facebook page you can copy and post a direct link (see below) to our various conference ministries. The link also has an online donation feature with 100% of the donation going to the ministry you choose.

About Georgia Gives Day:
The Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) announced an inaugural statewide day of giving – Georgia Gives Day – Dec. 6, 2012. The purpose of Georgia Gives Day is to bring the state together as one community, to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Georgia nonprofits within a 24-hour, flash mob of giving. One hundred percent of proceeds will go directly to participating nonprofits by donating through www.GAgivesday.org.
The initiative, which was officially declared Georgia Gives Day by Gov. Deal, provides citizens across the state with an easy platform to recognize nonprofits across a variety of sectors for their invaluable efforts. Inspired by other successful days of giving in states such as Washington, Colorado and Minnesota, GCN developed its own effort to promote community awareness and the mission of nonprofits that serve as the backbone for many communities across the state.
