Living Out His Word
Posted on June 5, 2012
Our God’s Word in Action program is expanding! Last year, the Thomas Nelson Bible Group partnered with World Vision to contribute funds to help eradicate global and domestic poverty. With a goal to generate $100,000, we were thrilled to surpass that with a total donation of $112,500. World Vision was then able to multiply the $112,500 God’s Word in Action Donation by a 4.8 World Vision matching grant multiplier to provide $540,000 in aid to children, their families and communities. In total, 24,000 individuals were cared for through this program.
This year, Thomas Nelson Bibles is joining with World Vision again to continue to give back. By donating a minimum of $100,000 to World Vision, we are helping to eradicate poverty and preventable deaths among children. Based on current matching grant estimates this donation will generate $525,000 – providing aid to more than 38,000 children.
This year, the funds given to World Vision will be directed to their Survive to Five program and pharmaceuticals program. According to World Vision, children under the age of five are the most vulnerable to preventable diseases. The funds contributed from Thomas Nelson Bibles will be focused on the fundamentals of child heath, including clean water, nutritious food, and preventable diseases.
We are so excited to get another year rolling for our God’s Word in Action program! It’s incredible to see the amazing ways in which God works through all people in order to accomplish His plan. What a blessing to play a small part in His story and see His Word lived out.
Thank you for joining with us as we put God’s Word in Action!
