Hello and welcome to Social Media Ministries, my name is Spencer Coffman. Today I’ve got some exciting news, you can now support Social Media Ministries directly on Facebook. Through our page, we are now approved for Facebook for Charities and Facebook Fundraising.
There will be a ‘Donate’ link right on our page that you can click and Facebook takes care of everything, they will take the money in, they will hold it, and then they will release it to us after a time period passes. They will take care of all the fees, so we will receive 100% of every single dollar that is donated to Social Media Ministries. That is excellent and you can do that, you can give through Facebook right on the Social Media Ministries page.
But even more exciting and the thing that I really hope you do, is you can now create a fundraiser for Social Media Ministries directly on Facebook. You can navigate to our Facebook page, you can click on the ‘Fundraisers’ tab, you can hit ‘Create a fundraiser’, and type in whatever you need.
You are raising money for Social Media Ministries. You can set a goal: ‘I want to raise $500, I want to raise $1,000, I want to raise $10,000, I want to raise $50,000’. Whatever it is, set your goal, type a little bit about it, Facebook will give you information that is pre-filled so you can just use that or you can reach out to us and say, ‘Hey, do you have any specific needs?’ Maybe we say, ‘Yeah, we need $500 for whatever or we need $100 for this’, and you say, ‘All right, I want to raise money for that’.
You create your fundraiser and then it essentially creates an event, so then you have an event that you have created on Facebook that now you can invite your friends to. You are inviting your friends manually, so if there are some friends you don’t want to invite that’s okay, you just click on ‘Invite’. Hopefully, you invite as many as possible.
Then they’re invited to participate in this fundraiser and then what you should also be doing during that is sharing updates from our page or from the fundraiser to your profile, we can get on there and post within your fundraiser, within the event itself to get some activity going. As people donate they can post in there too, so it is kind of like a little community and it has a great opportunity to reach more people and to raise some money for Social Media Ministries.
Please consider doing that if you have a Facebook account. Maybe you don’t have a lot of money to give but you know a lot of people who maybe are in a better position financially or who might be willing and so we need you to help us reach those people by creating that fundraiser.
If you are watching this and you are saying, ‘All they care about is money’, then you are missing the point. We are not going to go into it now, but if that is where your heart is, then you have got to check where your heart is. That’s not where we are.
This is just a means of us raising money to reach more people with the Bible, with the Gospel of Christ and that’s what we want to do and we need money to do that. So if you can help us with that by creating a fundraiser we would greatly appreciate it.
