They need YOU
THEY NEED YOU. WILL YOU HELP?
Kingdom Outdoors is not a disaster relief organization, but our staff were involved in disaster relief before KO was even formed. We have relationships with a number of organizations that specialize in disaster relief. Our goal is to come along side these organizations and support what they are doing. We have a network of people ready to volunteer. Many times these volunteers must take days off from work, and at often lose income by committing to go on these trips. Their sacrifice is humbling and inspiring!
The reality is there are expenses when a team deploys. In many cases volunteers have to pay their own way to get to the disaster area. We recognize many of the sacrifices our volunteers are already making. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for someone to be mobilized and deployed in a disaster situation. On average it costs $150 per person to deploy a team. We have never charged anyone to go, and hope to keep it this way! Would you consider giving towards our disaster relief fund? Your gift can help make it possible for us to continue to serve hurting people, and be the hands and feet of Jesus in a very tangible way.
When our budget allows we do our best to support relief efforts, not just with volunteers, but also with much needed supplies and equipment. When you give you are not only helping to fund the trip for the volunteers, but you may be providing a tarp that will save someones home from further damage while they wait for repairs. Or maybe special equipment to help volunteers get the job done.
We want to continue to grow our volunteer force. Both in numbers and in knowledge. There are specialized training events and opportunities to help ensure that we are equipped to meet the needs of victims in various disaster situations. Your donation can help cover the expense for these events allowing would be volunteers to be better trained and able to have an even greater impact on these trips.
The way we see it there are three ways to be involved with our disaster relief efforts:
-pray for the victims and all that are in need in the wake of the disaster.
-pray for the teams and individuals that are sacrificing so much to deploy to these areas.
-pray that God gives the volunteers opportunities to share the love of Jesus with everyone they meet.
- give to help fund a volunteer that is already giving up so much to serve.
- give to provide the materials and equipment needed to save or sometimes replace what has been lost.
- give to help provide specialized disaster relief training to volunteers.
Join one of our teams and help serve in whatever capacity you are needed.
NONE of these is greater than the other. In fact, none can happen with out the other. You may can do all three or you may have to pick one or two. When you do any of these things you are bringing healing to those who are hurting, and opening doors to share the love of Jesus!
