Give the gift of fishing lessons!

I am sure you know the old adage, "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat forever."

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, a day to give back to the causes that matter to us – and I know that fighting poverty and injustice matters to you.

So while you are shopping for Cyber Monday deals on great gifts today, I am asking you to pause and consider giving the gift of "fishing lessons."

You know that through CWS, you provide emergency aid to people in crisis, like the flooding in Myanmar (Burma) in October. But you also know that your support creates lasting solutions for families and whole communities plagued by poverty – solutions that are tailored to their individual needs, and that can even help them become more resilient if disaster does strike.

Mark your calendar for Giving Tuesday tomorrow, and give a gift that will change lives today and far into the future!

Yours in service,
Rev. John L. McCullough
Rev. John L. McCullough
President and CEO

P.S. You don't have to wait until Giving Tuesday to change lives! Get started today if you prefer.

Today is the CROP Walk

The Evansville Area CROP Walk for Hunger is today at Simpson United Methodist Church. Registration begins at 9 AM, and the Walk begins at 10 AM.

Rain or Shine, we are walking for those who suffer hunger everyday. Bring an umbrella - there's a 40% chance of rain during the Walk.

We walk because they walk.
