#GIVINGTUESDAY on DECEMBER 2, 2014
Time for Presbyterians to up their game!
In 2013, the Methodists raised $5 million in one day for mission and ministry. The day was Giving Tuesday – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. And the Presbyterians? We raised about $100 that day. What can we do?
We have nearly 2 million generous souls who claim the Presbyterian moniker. That is a good place to start. We also have an online giving system ~ The Presbyterian Mission Exchange. Best of all, we have a theology that inspires us to give out of gratitude for all that God has given us. Giving our first fruits – the best we have to offer – is core to who we are as Christians.
So join your fellow Presbyterians and participate in the third annual #GivingTuesday supporting mission and ministry around the world and here at home. The Presbyterian Mission Exchange makes it easy to do all your online giving in one place.

FREE WHEELCHAIR MISSION
2014/2015 PW Synod Mission Project
Free Wheelchair Mission is a humanitarian, faith-based, nonprofit organization that provides wheelchairs at no cost to people with disabilities living in developing nations. In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, FWM has sent more than 781,000 wheelchairs to people in 91 countries, providing dignity, independence and hope through the gift of mobility.
Our Mission is to provide the transforming gift of mobility to the physically disabled poor in developing countries as motivated by Jesus Christ.
Our Vision is to be a world-class provider of mobility, transforming the lives of 100,000 people with disabilities in 2014.
With an estimated 100 million people around the world today in need of a wheelchair without the means to get one, FWM strives to distribute over 100,000 chairs annually, and continues to pursue our goal to distribute 1 million chairs by the year 2016. Free Wheelchair Mission continues its focus and commitment on becoming a leading provider of mobility in developing nations, but beyond placing recipients in a chair, FWM is bringing transformation that opens doors to education, employment opportunities and community that these individuals only dreamed of before receiving the gift of mobility.
