CHICAGO, IL (December 1, 2014) — Shoppers have been searching for special Christmas bargains since stores opened on Thanksgiving. Some withstood crowds and freezing temperatures for hours on Black Friday. Others wore out their fingers typing in one website after another, clicking through page after page as they scoured the Internet on Cyber Monday.
But the best gifts can be purchased on Giving Tuesday, December 2. That’s when bargain hunters can help some of the poorest people in the world get food to eat, clean water to drink, clothes to wear, schools to attend, medicines to take, animals to raise, and businesses to start and operate.
In other words, there’s a big selection. Covenanters can shop online for ways to give through Covenant Kids Congo, ongoing projects, or specific missionaries—all on one website so there’s no danger of developing carpal tunnel while doing all that bargain hunting.
Curt Peterson, executive minister of Serve Globally, said, “Covenanters are generous to mission and ministry all year long, and we are excited to see what happens when we come together as a church on Giving Tuesday.”
