SAVE PARKER FROM THE CHAIR!!!

Chris Jones by Chris Jones

parkerMEET PARKER

He’s a sixth-grade student, in his first year in Flood Student Ministry at Calvary Assembly of God.  He’s also my son.  Parker has the heart of a servant, and is always ready to jump in and help where it’s needed.  He’s compassionate about the needs of others, and desperate not to be confined to…”THE CHAIR”.

.

WHAT’S “THE CHAIR”?

Flood is conducting a “Rock-A-Thon” to support Stop Hunger Now, an organization dedicated to “ending hunger in our lifetime”.  The “Rock-A-Thon” is a fund-raising effort, where students will sit in a rocking chair for twenty-four straight hours (provided bathroom breaks), from 11am on Saturday, November 9th, through the end of our Sunday morning service on the 10th.

HOW CAN YOU SAVE PARKER FROM THE CHAIR?

That’s easy.  If Parker raises more than $500, I’ll take his place.

Your donation can be made, by credit card or debit card, at Calvary’s online donation page.  Be sure to type “Save Parker” in the comment box, to the right of your contribution amount.  Please contact me for other donation options.  You may make your donation for any amount, with a suggested minimum donation of $5.SHN02  Your donation will also add a tag to our donation wall, as Calvary pushes towards our goal of $10,000.  That’s 40,000 meals, at only $0.25 per meal.

We’re not stopping there though.  On November 20th, we’ll package those 40,000 meals.  Those meals are a combination of “rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages.  These meal packages are shipped around the world to support school feeding programs and crisis relief.  The food stores easily, transports quickly and has a shelf-life of two years.” (from stophungernow.org)  You don’t have to wonder if your donation actually makes a difference.  We’ll ship those meals, right from our front door.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?  

A contribution of $25 provides 100 meals.  If only twenty people contribute $25 each, that would provide two thousand meals, and place me in that rocking chair for twenty-four hours.  Feel no pressure though.  It doesn’t have to be $25.  Every donation helps in a big way.  Just $5 can provide twenty meals.  THAT’S HUGE!  …but don’t stop there!  Share this page with your friends and family.  Get them involved too.  Let’s see how much Parker can raise.

SO WHAT DO YOU SAY?

Will you help “Stop Hunger Now”?  Final donations for Calvary’s campaign will extend beyond the Rock-A-Thon, but you only have until Friday, November 8th to “SAVE PARKER FROM THE CHAIR”!!!

  1. As a parent of children that have graduated Flood ministries and now with only one left, my needs and desires are so different….I pay handsomely to save myself from “The Chair”. Love the idea but will support Leah in rocking for the 24 hours! LOL
